About this Book


Organic Reactions is a comprehensive online resource for synthetic organic chemists which provides information about the most important and useful synthetic reactions, organized primarily by reaction type. Each major component contains a critical discussion of the featured type of reaction as well as a step-by-step guide to performing it. Dedicated compilations of information about each reaction include extensive tables that catalog all published examples of the reaction in the literature, as well as safety and procedural guidance to help ensure safety and success in their execution. Each reaction type is carefully evaluated through a comprehensive peer-review process, ensuring the high quality and attention to detail for which Organic Reactions is well known. With over 200,000 reactions, Organic Reactions contains the important chemical reactions that chemists frequently look for. As an educational tool, Organic Reactions contains exhaustive detail on the individual reactions as well as links to published examples. As a laboratory and research resource, Organic Reactions improves researcher efficiency by enabling chemists to find the reaction they need and the step-by-step instructions required to help ensure successful outcomes.

The online version of Organic Reactions has been a regularly updated online database since 2003 and is available as either an electronic major reference work (eMRW), or a fully-featured database product with a set of advanced tools for structure/sub-structure and reaction searching. These tools allow users to search for reaction information by chemical structure (drawn using the embedded editor tool, or imported from file); by the CAS number or name of a featured Reagent, Catalyst, or Solvent; by reaction type; by yield or temperature conditions, and more.
