Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis,
Edition 1
By Laszlo Kurti and Barbara Czako

Publication Date: 04 Mar 2005
Kurti and Czako have produced an indispensable tool for specialists and non-specialists in organic chemistry. This innovative reference work includes 250 organic reactions and their strategic use in the synthesis of complex natural and unnatural products. Reactions are thoroughly discussed in a convenient, two-page layout--using full color. Its comprehensive coverage, superb organization, quality of presentation, and wealth of references, make this a necessity for every organic chemist.
