Organic Synthesis (also available as e-book) by Stuart Warren; Paul WyattOrganic Synthesis: Strategy and Control is the long-awaited sequel to Stuart Warren's bestseller Organic Synthesis: The Disconnection Approach, which looked at the planning behind the synthesis of compounds. This unique book now provides a comprehensive, practical account of the key concepts involved in synthesising compounds and focuses on putting the planning into practice. The two themes of the book are strategy and control: solving problems either by finding an alternative strategy or by controlling any established strategy to make it work. The book is divided into five sections that deal with selectivity, carbon-carbon single bonds, carbon-carbon double bonds, stereochemistry and functional group strategy. A comprehensive, practical account of the key concepts involved in synthesising compounds Takes a mechanistic approach, which explains reactions and gives guidelines on how reactions might behave in different situations Focuses on reactions that really work rather than those with limited application Contains extensive, up-to-date references in each chapter Students and professional chemists familiar with Organic Synthesis: The Disconnection Approach will enjoy the leap into a book designed for chemists at the coalface of organic synthesis.

Classics in Stereoselective Synthesis by Erick M. Carreira; Keith A. Woerpel; Lisbet KvaernoProviding an excellent compilation of the most important and useful methods of modern stereoselective synthesis, this book features illustrative examples of drug and natural product syntheses, resulting in a rich source of stimulating ideas for the efficient use of asymmetric reactions in the users' own synthesis. The authors adopt a novel approach in not attempting to present this rapidly developing area in its entirety, but to distill the truly groundbreaking reactions that should be in the repertoire of every synthetic organic chemist.

Organic Chemistry* by K. Peter C. VollhardtWith authors who are both accomplished researchers and educators, Vollhardt and Schore's Organic Chemistry takes a functional group approach with a heavy emphasis on understanding how the structure of a molecule determines how that molecule will function in chemical reactions. By understanding the connection between structure and function, students will better understand mechanisms and solve practical problems in organic chemistry.
