Professor Phil Baran"Science of Synthesis is an indispensable tome of chemical information organized in an intuitive and logical way. It contains information on nearly every aspect of chemical reactivity and, for me, is the "go-to" resource for rapidly learning about a new area. I use it regularly in preparation for classes and for consulting visits - it simply gives me the information I need far more easily than any search engine is capable of - and very often contains references and insight that cannot be found anywhere else."

"Today's scientific community must struggle to find ways to effectively distill massive floods of information into real knowledge. Science of Synthesis does this superbly well with carefully selected content on synthetic organic chemistry that has been written and edited by leading authorities from around the world. Science of Synthesis is a must-have for all universities and research institutions involved in material synthesis."

"The phenomenal success of organic chemists in devising new reactions has made it increasingly difficult to find the best procedures and protocols. Science of Synthesis gives leading scientists the opportunity to bring clarity to their respective fields and provides state of the art protocols to the most important reactions."

Professor Jeffrey Bode, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

"As a past author and current volume editor, I completely appreciate the scientific and editorial rigor to put together the Science of Synthesis. It has the most authoritative and updated reviews and compilation of experimental procedures. Science of Synthesis is the first place I would look before embarking on a synthesis."

“At the risk of blasphemy, the Science of Synthesis compendia represent the King James Version of the Bible or, to paraphrase for our science, the most influential version of the most influential book in the practice of chemical synthesis, in what is now its most influential language.”

Professor Victor Snieckus, Queen‘s University, Kingston, ON, Canada
