Editorial Reviews

Review

"An essential bible for the library or personal bookshelf of chemists performing complex synthesis." (CHOICE, May 2007)

"...the most up-to-date compilation available...should be an integral part of all institutional libraries...it is also highly recommended that individuals...maintain their own copy..." (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, March 8, 2007)

"...continues to be a comprehensive guide to the techniques for the formation and cleavage of protective groups." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, January 31, 2007)

From the Back Cover

The Most Comprehensive Guide to Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis Currently Available

For more than twenty-five years, Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis has been the definitive guide for organic chemists in designing synthetic routes. Now in its fourth edition, the text continues to be a uniquely comprehensive and an indispensable reference for both synthetic organic and medicinal chemists who want to control the reactivity of the most common functional groups during a synthetic sequence.

The Fourth Edition includes significant developments in protective group chemistry since 1998. In addition to incorporating new protective groups now available to the synthetic organic chemist, such as the uniquely removable 2-methoxybenzenesulfonyl group for the protection of amines, the book also covers new techniques for the formation and cleavage of existing protective groups, providing the most relevant and useful examples to illustrate each methodology. The content is organized around the functional group to be protected (ethers, acids, carbonyl groups, amines, amides, phenols, etc.), and ranges from the simplest to the most complex highly specialized protective groups.

New features of the Fourth Edition include:

  • The addition of numerous new protective groups, such as the fluorous family
  • New methods for the cleavage and introduction of many of the classic protective groups highlighting selectivity issues when reported in the literature
  • Expanded coverage of the unexpected side reactions that occur with protective groups
  • A new chart covering the selective deprotection of silyl ethers
  • 3,100 new references from the professional literature, complete through the end of 2005

The book neatly organized into functional groups and their protecting groups.
Matthew M. Yau
Along with March's Advanced Organic Chemistry, this book is a must have for any organic chemist.
Matthew Morin
In summary, it is an excellent reference text that should be on every organic chemist's desk.

Format: Hardcover
This book is absolutely essential for the organic chemist. Well organized by functional group to be protected and well indexed to allow searches by protection group, this book has it all. If you have a question about how to protect a particular functional group, this is the book for it. Under each section a plethora of references may be found--with each one succinctly summarized to avoid looking for references that have nothing to do with what you want. This book is essential whether you are a graduate student studying what reactions you need to know to do the research assigned you or a professor writing research proposals (indeed, I bought my own copy of this book from Amazon because the ones in our school library were always checked out to one of the professors). In summary, it is an excellent reference text that should be on every organic chemist's desk.

Like every other edition of Greene's Protective Groups, this updated version is concise with reliable references and schematics. All researchers need this book.

Format: Hardcover
Quite possibly the most important protecting group book published. The new edition is out and is even more extensive and completely up to date. However, "Greene and Wuts" is a bible in the laboratory. Many of you who will read this have probably scrambled for your copy of "Greene," as it is affectionately known, when designing a synthesis. Also check out Kocienski's protecting group book and his extensive reviews if you do not know about them.

Format: Hardcover
This book contains methods for the installation and removal of practically every protecting group you can think of, and likely some you've never encountered. Most methods are referenced to articles containing representative procedures, saving valuable time scouring the literature. It is compact, well-organized and reasonably priced. Along with March's Advanced Organic Chemistry, this book is a must have for any organic chemist.

The most comprehensive text on protecting groups there is. Much better than "Protecting Groups" by Phillip J. Kocienski

Format: Hardcover
If you doing any sort of organic chemistry in the lab, you will really get your hands into this handy reference on protecting groups. The book neatly organized into functional groups and their protecting groups. A Primer for organic chemists. It will save you zillion hours of researching for papers/references on the appropriate protecting groups used in reactions.

Book was in better condition than I expected. The book lists out basic protection and deprotection chemistry for alcohols, carbonyls, carboxyls, thiols, and amines. Great reference with lots of procedures.
