The didactic presentation of the material makes this book an essential bench-top tool not only for specialists in organic chemistry, but also for students and all those involved in the preparation of organic molecules.

Key Features:

  • A critical survey of the most used protecting groups, as used by organic chemists
  • Organization based on functional groups: hydroxyl ; diol; carbonyl; carboxyl; amine
  • Special emphasis placed on deprotection conditions applied to complex structures where selectivity is a prime issue
  • Transformations accompanied by key experimental details
  • Examples from the recent literature span a wide domain of organic synthesis
  • Over 500 schemes aid visual retrieval
  • End-of-chapter list reviews which amplify topics covered.
