Editorial Reviews

Review

"...no other book covers the subject of named reactions in such an up-to-date and comprehensive way, ranging from mechanisms to applications. Despite it's minor weaknesses, I recommend this book most emphatically to interested chemists as a work of reference and source of inspiration." -Siegfried R. Waldvogel, University of Bonn, Germany, in ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE, WOL. 44, 2005 "This book is outstanding in every way, being polished in presentation, sufficiently detailed in explaining the reactions, and possessing almost encyclopedic indexing and referencing." -JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL EDUCATION "The book would be invaluable to many chemists, students, professors and industrial chemists. Not only will it serve as a text for name reactions, but it is also a review of important mechanisms and an invaluable reference book...It will definitely have a place in the collection of books that are used regularly by all chemists." -Madeleine Joullie, University of Pennsylvania "It is an impressive modern treatise of many important chemical reactions; it was created with great care, and I congratulate the authors on the outstanding contribution that they are making to the literature of organic chemistry...There are several books on 'named reactions', but this one is already my favorite..." -Erik Sorensen, Princeton University, from the Foreword "Beyond introducing the fundamental chemical conversion typical for venerable organic name reaction, this text excels by a clear coverage of mechanisms and superb contemporary examples including an extensive and uptodate list of references." -Peter Wipf, University of Pittsburgh "The vast wealth of information so effectively compiled in this colorful text will not only prove to be extraordinarily useful to students and practitioners of the art of chemical synthesis, but will also help facilitate the shaping of its future as it moves forward into ever higher levels of complexity, diversity and efficiency." -K.C. Nicolaou, from the Introduction "This extraordinary book was written especially for students by graduate students, but it is far more professional. Named reactions and processes are very important to the field of synthetic organic chemistry, and this book contains 250 of them. This book greatly advances the description of both the art and science of chemical synthesis. Suitable for anyone concerned with organic synthesis. Summing up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students. -R.E. Buntrock, formerly, University of Maine, CHOICE, Sep. 2006, Vol. 44 No. 01

"The book version was already popular for its concise and masterful presentation of the most commonly used named reactions in organic chemistry, but immediate access to this valuable source at your fingertips is only one of many benefits that make the app version more appealing than the printed one. In many ways the app platform has allowed the book to come alive with the addition of several useful interactive and search features. The features that have made the textbook so popular are excellently translated to the app version. Clever colour mapping helps the reader to follow each reaction and its proposed mechanism, and? the authors' thoughtfully selected synthetic applications are just as successful as they were for the book. It is in the reference section where new advances have been made by adding a clickable DOI link for each publication, thus enabling the user to go directly to the primary source. Not surprisingly, the small iPhone screen poses challenges for displaying certain busy overview and mechanism in a way that is comfortable to read and view. This challenge is nicely solved by allowing the user to zoom in at will by simply tapping twice on the image they wish to view more closely. This app is absolutely fantastic and a must-have companion for synthetic organic chemists. "--Nature Chemistry, Vol. 4, August 2012

Book Description

The most advanced organic reaction reference work ever written, including 250 extensive color reactions, hundreds of examples and thousands of references, in an organized user-friendly format.

24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Santhosh F. Neelamkavil on March 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
Learning organic chemistry has always been about acquiring a comprehensive knowledge of chemical behavior and with this as the backdrop, to consider the principles, theoretical and mechanistical basis of the subject. In this context, the named reactions in organic chemistry provide one with a historical feel for the subject, is an easy tool to remember the myriad functional group transformations and thus create a love for this fascinating chemistry.

When I saw this book by Laszlo and Barbara, I was just amazed at the amount of labor that has gone into producing, what I believe, is one of the finest books ever written on named reactions in organic chemistry. It is not just another name reactions book, as it can also be considered a reaction mechanisms book, since the authors have drawn out elaborately, the mechanistic schemes / reaction pathways for every single reaction and you wouldn't believe, it lists a multitude of 250 named reactions! What strikes me most is that this book can cater to anybody, from an undergraduate who is trying to learn and love the art of Organic chemistry to a graduate student who is trying to learn complicated reaction mechanisms and also to chemists with a MS or PhD who want to strategically apply these in synthetic reactions.

One of the many salient points of this book, which I really liked, is the way references have been treated. It has been classified into reviews, seminal publications and applications. So a reader doesn't have to delve through a large number of refs in the library and find out what he likes.

Let me preface this review with: I have a huge library of chemistry related books, of which books relating to name reactions has a prominent footprint. With that said, this is one of the most readable of its kind. Before this, I enjoyed the Jie-Jack Li name reaction book. However, as with all of them, it was just a reference manual. Kurti's, however, is a well thought out "text" with background on each reaction and color coded mechanisms. It is an excellent book for both beginners and PI's. Sick as it may sound, I actually purchsed a second copy for home as well as the office. My conclusion is that this is one of maybe 3 name reaction books that make a complete reference set.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Yann Laot on August 12, 2005
Format: Paperback
Other books on this subject often are equal and contain the same amount of information : a very short mecanism and a list of 5-6 references. That's all, so you have to search the references in order to have more information.

This book works completely differently : there is an "historical introduction" - often very instructive because the discovery was unintended - then a complete mechanism and a illustration of the reaction as a key step in a recent synthesis. This last point is very valuable because it shows all the importance of the concerned reaction. Finally the references are classified between articles, reviews, books, ... So it's very useful to find quickly the best reference ...

In a word it's really an excellent book and it's worth the money!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is an outstanding work of scholarship and I completely agree with EJ Corey's review. The coverage of the 250 named reactions, especially the background, explanations, and supporting literature is encyclopedic. The presenation of the information is excellent, but suffers from a major problem.

Unless you have access to a 32-bit machine DO NOT purchase this version. MicroSoft offers a patch that Windows 7 (64-bit) users can download to enable software products written for XP and Vista to be run. I've had mixed success with getting the patch to run these older software apps in the 64 bit environment.

The bottom line is: Buy the paperback version at half the cost of this edition, or make friends with a Vista or XP machine owner.

I checked with Amazona and Elsevier for warnings about this compatibility issue. Both companies admitted that none had been made public. The IT help group at Elsevier were, of course, aware of the issue but offered no different solutions than downloading the MS patch.

Format: Paperback
Absolutely excellent book!!! but make sure you spend the extra money on the hard cover. I bought the paperback and used it for a grad level total synthesis class and after two weeks the book completely fell apart. I now have a very useful stack of papers instead of a very useful book. I even emailed the publisher about it and got no response. i would try and boycott the book but it's just too good to live without. I recommend the hard cover instead.

To put it shortly, if you're an organic chemistry graduate student the just go ahead and buy this book. It will be the most used book in your personal library. Also, if you are an undergraduate working in a research lab buy it as well. You'll have a huge jump on the other graduate students when you go to grad school having been familiar with this book.
