About this Book

Simplify your selection process. Distilled data. Improved efficiency.

Organic Reactions is a comprehensive online resource for synthetic organic chemists. Instead of offering coverage of millions of reactions, it uniquely focuses on 200,000+ of the most important and useful synthetic reactions. These reactions are reviewed and refined by trained chemists (rather than machine selected), resulting in a high quality, verified critical discussion of the use, selection, usability and repeatability of a given reaction.

Each major component provides:

• a critical discussion of the featured type of reaction

• a step-by-step guide to performing it, enabling the user to successfully repeat the process quickly

• Dedicated compilations of information about each reaction including 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

“...the challenge for the practitioner is no longer to locate all of the literature on the subject, but rather, how to critically and efficiently digest it. Organic Reactions chapters are much more than a surfeit of primary references; they constitute a distillation of an avalanche of information into the knowledge needed to correctly implement a reaction.”

Scott E. Denmark, Editor-in-Chief
