3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Hongyi Wang on March 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
Like many other items in this Oxford chemistry primers, this one is of particlar value among those heavy big volumes on this topic. As precise as it could be - 91 pages, it has covered all the major points of organic synthesis in terms of retrosynthesis analysis and selectivity, as well as representative published works. The authors also pay attention to touch on different reactions as many as possible - after all mastering reactions is a must for successful synthesis. The best feature is the logical presentation of the topic which allows the readers to actually enjoy reading without much difficulty - with gradual increase of depth to the final original publications. Of course such a volume is not intended for those who are very experienced in the art of organic synthesis. Rather, it could be very refreshing and helpful for the experienced ones to pick up this topic again after a while away from this field. Or it could serve as a valuable piece for an organic chemistry student prior to formal graduate level organic synthesis. Or test yourself if you understand all the material in this book - if the answer is yes, you should be a proud synthetic organic chemist already!

This book is excellent. It's college level chemistry but it might be good for some high school students with an interest in chemistry.
