Summary and Info
Organic Syntheses, Volume 77 describes twenty-eight checked and edited experimental procedures, spanning a broad range of synthetic methodologies, and provides chemists with a compendium of new or little known experimental procedures which lead to useful compounds or that illustrate important new developments in methodology. For every procedure, safety warnings are presented along with detailed descriptions for the preparation, purification, and identification of the compound in question. Additionally, special reaction conditions are detailed, along with the source of reagents, helpful waste disposal guidelines, discussions of results, references to the primary literature, and an appendix of nomenclature and registry numbers. Coverage is divided into four main sections devoted to: reagents and procedures for asymmetric synthesis; chemical processes; chemical reagents; and chemical compounds, respectively.
