0 Reviews
This helpful, useful, practical book presents the most important achievements in organic chemistry over the past decade, summarizing such major developments as C-H activation, organocatalysis, and supramolecular chemistry. Each chapter contains two or three personal, hitherto unpublished, commentaries by leading experts on the topic. This reference work focuses on four main areas: the total synthesis of natural products and chemical biology; synthetic methodology; physical organic chemistry and chemistry relevant to meeting the urgent needs of humanity. The result is a complete and extremely useful source of a wide variety of information for graduate students, post-docs and researchers.
