This volume provides organic chemists with a convenient, up-to-date reference source on reliable preparative procedures for the most common functional groups. Preparations for each functional group have been subdivided into various reaction types.
Volume II describes 17 additional functional groups and presents a critical review of their available methods of synthesis with preparative examples of each. Attention is especially paid to presenting specific laboratory directions for the many name reactions used in describing the synthesis of these functional groups. This volume covers synthetic methods for the generation of 17 functional groups; unique features include the citation of U.S. and foreign patent literature and safety information; and, major topics discussed are: Ynamines, Enamines, Allenes, Azo compounds, Azoxy compounds, and N-Nitroso compounds.
