Each volume reviews the total synthesis of a set of compounds looking at syntheses reported historically and at the practice current at the time of publication. From volume 1 focusing on carbohydrates, prostagladins, nucleic acids, antibiotics, naturally occurring oxygen ring compounds and pyrrole pigments, the series continues with coverage of aromatic steroids, monoterpenes, triterpenes, sesquiterpenes, cannabinoids, natural inophores, insect pheromones and alkaloids. Volumes revisit the total synthesis of key compounds such as carbohydrates, nucleic acids and pyrrole pigments several times during the series building a picture of the historic development of total synthesis techniques for these major groups. Chapters are edited by experts in their field to give a complete overview of the best in the field at the time.
