About this Book Series

The most complete resource in functional group chemistry
Patai’s Chemistry of Functional Groups is one of chemistry’s landmark book series in organic chemistry. An indispensible resource for the organic chemist, this is the most comprehensive reference available in functional group chemistry. Founded in 1964 by the late Professor Saul Patai, the aim of Patai’s Chemistry of Functional Groups is to cover all the aspects of the chemistry of an important functional group in each volume, with the emphasis not only on the functional group but on the whole molecule.

The Online Book Series features all the volumes from 1964 to 1995, totalling some 86 classic volumes in print, represented within 83 volumes online (with some volumes merged for the Online Book Series). These are listed below, together with some of the more recent volumes which are available to purchase as part of the electronic major reference work, ePatai. Those books included in the Online Book Series are volumes from 1964 to 1995 (those shown without dates are excluded). All volumes from 1995 onwards (currently 26 volumes) are available as an electronic major reference work, for more information on ePatai, click here.

Each volume contains detailed information on the chemistry of the functional group with the following topics featured in each volume.

General, theoretical and computational aspects of the functional group, for example, quantum chemical treatment, structural and conformational chemistry and thermochemistry.Characterisation and characteristics of the functional groups with chapters covering both qualitative and quantitative methods of determination such as UV, IR, NMR, ESR, PES, RD, CD and mass spectrometry. It will also cover the basicity, acidity or the complex forming ability of the group.

The formation of the functional group and the reactions, transformations and rearrangements which the functional group can undergo, also including synthesis and reaction mechanisms as diverse as photochemistry, radiation chemistry, biochemical formation or classic synthesis and catalysis.
 

  • The biological aspects in both biochemistry and molecular biology as well as its application in medicinal chemistry, drug development and drug discovery.
  • Data and reviews on the important industrial applications in fields such as polymers, materials and nano-materials.

Patai’s Chemistry of Functional Groups is much more than just data. It provides detailed insights, review sand overviews on each functional group featured. This depth of content is the strength of the series as well as its broad coverage of techniques, methods, theory and applications.
