Modern Physical Organic Chemistry by Eric Anslyn; Dennis A. DoughertyThis modern textbook makes explicit the many connections between physical organic chemistry and critical fields such as organometallic chemistrry, materials chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. In the latter part of the 20th century, the field of physical organic chemistry went through dramatic changes, with an increased emphasis on noncovalent interactions and their roles in molecular recognition, supramolecular chemistry, and biology; the development of new materials with novel structural features; and the use of computational methods. Contemporary chemists must be just as familiar with these newer fields as with the more established classical topics. Modern Physical Organic Chemistry is intended to bridge that gap. In addition to covering thoroughly the core areas of physical organic chemistry - structure and mechanism - the book will escort the practitioner of organic chemistry into a field that has been thoroughly updated.

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.

Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis (2010 version available as e-book) by Iwao Ojima (Editor)From the reviews of the First Edition . . . "An excellent text . . . will no doubt provide the benchmark for comparative works for many years." -Journal of the American Chemical Society "A resounding success . . . the definitive current summaries on their respective subjects." -Synthesis Since this important work was first published in 1993, the field of catalytic asymmetric synthesis has grown explosively, spawning effective new methods for obtaining enantiomerically pure compounds on a large scale and stimulating new applications in diverse fields-from medicine to materials science. Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis, Second Edition addresses these rapid changes through new or substantially revised contributions from highly recognized world leaders in the field. It presents detailed accounts of the most important catalytic asymmetric reactions known today, discusses recent advances, and retains from the previous edition essential and intriguing information on the initial development of certain processes. An excellent working resource for academic researchers and industrial chemists alike, the Second Edition features: Contributions from Noyori, Sharpless, Kagan, Trost, Overman, Shibasaki, Doyle, Okamoto, Bolm, Carreira, and many other internationally renowned authorities New chapters on asymmetric carbometallations, asymmetric amplification and autocatalysis, and asymmetric polymerization Extended coverage of asymmetric carbene reactions, including asymmetric intramolecular carbene insertion to C-H bonds as well as asymmetric dihydroxylation and aminohydroxylation Extended coverage of asymmetric carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions and applications An appendix listing all chiral ligands in the book

Fundamentals of Asymmetric Catalysis by Patrick Walsh; Marisa Kozlowski"The field of asymmetric catalysis plays an increasingly large role in chemical synthesis as the demand for single-enantiomer starting materials, intermediates, and products rises. This book describes the essential aspects of enantioselective catalysis in a clear, logical fashion, with chapters organized by concept rather than by reaction type. Each concept is supported by carefully selected examples to give the reader broad exposure to a wide range of catalysts, reactions, and reaction mechanisms." "This book is designed to introduce advanced undergraduate or graduate chemistry students to asymmetric catalysis. It can be used as the primary text in a course on this topic, or as a reference by researchers who wish to increase their understanding. It is also intended for synthetic chemists who wish to increase their likelihood for success when faced with the prospect of using asymmetric catalysts."--BOOK JACKET.
