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:
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.
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.
Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis
These Science of Synthesis volumes present a broad contemporary overview on the state-of-the-art in enzymatic methods for asymmetric synthesis.
C-1 Building Blocks in Organic Synthesis
The two volumes of C-1 Building Blocks in Organic Synthesis provide a critical overview of synthetic organic reactions that add one carbon atom to a substrate.
This two-volume reference work on Multicomponent Reactions has been designed to summarize critically the relevant synthetic processes in a dynamic field, which is of interest to chemists in both academia and industry.
Cross Coupling and Heck-Type Reactions
Metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions are of central importance in modern chemistry. In 2010 the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded to chemists working in the field.
Organocatalysis is a dynamic, young field that is rapidly gaining significance for economical and environmentally friendly organic synthesis, both in academia and in industry.
Water in Organic Synthesis
Water is a beautiful solvent, and this volume helps not only to illustrate this, but it should also help in inspiring chemists worldwide to find new approaches and techniques for its application in organic synthesis.
Over 120 expert authors present the best methods currently available for the preparation of nonracemic compounds. These methods may be stoichiometric or catalytic, and the latter may include metal, organic, or enzyme catalysis.
