Science of Synthesis Reference Library

Expert evaluated content focusing on subjects of particular current interest. The series highlights new angles and perspectives of importance in organic synthesis.

The Science of Synthesis Reference Library comprises volumes covering special topics of organic chemistry in a modular fashion, with six main classifications:

  1. classical
  2. advances
  3. transformations 
  4. applications 
  5. structures
  6. techniques

Volumes in the Science of Synthesis Reference Library focus on subjects of particular current interest with content that is evaluated by experts in their field. Science of Synthesis, including the Knowledge Updates and the Reference Library, is the complete information source for the modern synthetic chemist.

SOS Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis

Catalytic reductions are among the most used synthetic transformations. These two volumes focus on recent developments in catalytic hydrogenation methodology.

Catalytic Oxidation in Organic Synthesis Catalytic Oxidation in Organic Synthesis

This SOS volume covers the evolution and emerging concepts in catalytic oxidation, with a focus on “green” processes.

SOS N-Heterocyclic Carbenes in Catalytic Organic Synthesis N-Heterocyclic Carbenes in Catalytic Organic Synthesis

This two-volume set from SOS provides a user’s guide to NHC chemistry and catalysis, thus facilitating the introduction of NHCs to novices as well as providing a toolbox for more-advanced users.

Metal-Catalyzed Cyclization Reactions Metal-Catalyzed Cyclization Reactions

These two SOS volumes present the broad scope of metal-catalyzed reactions for the synthesis of cyclic compounds, from long-established methods to state-of-the-art approaches.

Applications of Domino Transformations in Organic Synthesis Applications of Domino Transformations in Organic Synthesis

These two SOS volumes highlight the current state of the art for the synthesis of complex products by domino processes.
