"Different from other books on name reactions in organic chemistry, Name Reactions, A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms focuses on their mechanisms. It covers over 300 classical as well as contemporary name reactions. Each reaction is delineated by its detailed step-by-step, electron-pushing mechanism, supplemented with the original and the latest references, especially review articles. Thus, it is not only an indispensable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students for their learning and exams, but also a good reference book for all chemists interested in name reactions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Current indexing schemes do not list reactions and reagents as commonly as they used to. This volume is an up-to-date and concise compilation of the most commonly used and widely known name reactions and reagents in modern synthetic organic chemistry. Reactions are listed alphabetically, each listing providing either an accepted or proposed mechanism, secondary information, and four to five referenced examples. Reactions are cross-referenced to Jerry March's Advanced Organic Chemistry. The second section lists reagents alphabetically, each entry giving structure, physical properties, major uses, preparation and commercial availability, necessary precautions, secondary information, and four to five referenced examples. Reagents are cross-referenced to the Fieser & Fieser series, Reagents for Organic Synthesis, through volume 12.
This Second Edition is the premier name resource in the field. It provides a handy resource for navigating the web of named reactions and reagents. Reactions and reagents are listed alphabetically, followed by relevant mechanisms, experimental data (including yields where available), and references to the primary literature. The text also includes three indices based on reagents and reactions, starting materials, and desired products. Organic chemistry professors, graduate students, and undergraduates, as well as chemists working in industrial, government, and other laboratories, will all find this book to be an invaluable reference.
