Molecules that changed the world : a brief history of the art and science of synthesis and its impact on society by K. C Nicolaou( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher: Here, the best-selling author and renowned researcher, K.C. Nicolaou, presents around 40 natural products that all have an enormous impact on our everyday life. Printed in full color throughout with a host of pictures, this book is written in the author's very enjoyable and distinct style, such that each chapter is full of interesting and entertaining information on the facts, stories and people behind the scenes. Molecules covered span the healthy and useful, as well as the much-needed and extremely toxic, including Aspirin, urea, camphor, morphine, strychnine, penicillin, vitamin B12, Taxol, Brevetoxin and quinine
Classics in total synthesis : targets, strategies, methods by K. C Nicolaou( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and German and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a must for every synthetic organic chemist. With didactic skill and clarity, K.C. Nicolaou and E.J. Sorensen present the most remarkable and ingenious total syntheses from the laboratories of some of the world's greatest synthetic organic chemists. To make the strategies more understandable and accessible, especially to the novice, each total synthesis is first analyzed retrosynthetically. The authors then carefully describe each step and comment on alternative methods and potential pitfalls. When appropriate, key chemical reactions are discussed in the wider context of the chemical literature, giving the reader a lesson in both total synthesis and synthetic methods. Diverse structural types of natural products and important organic transformations including pericyclic, ionic, radical, and photochemical reactions are covered. Catalysis, asymmetric synthesis, organometallic chemistry, and cyclization reactions are especially highlighted. Mechanism, reactivity, selectivity, and stereochemistry are presented clearly and discussed analytically. Numerous references to useful reviews and the original literature will make this book the first point of entry into the vast field of synthetic organic chemistry. Special emphasis is placed on the skillful use of graphics and schemes. Retrosynthetic analyses, reaction sequences and crucial synthetic steps are presented in boxed, blue background sections within the text. For easy reference, key intermediates are also shown in the margins. Graduate students, teachers, and researchers alike will find this book to be a gold mine of useful information. Every synthetic chemist will have a copy on his or her desk

Dead ends and detours : direct ways to successful total synthesis by Miguel A Sierra( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A plethora of publications provide valuable information for the organic chemist, yet the results are almost always based on successful reactions. However, a chemist's life is unfortunately not that easy. On the contrary, trial and error is still one of the most commonly used methods. Thus it would be useful to have access to those syntheses that do not work, since they also provide important results of great importance for further synthesis." "This long-awaited book by M.A. Sierra and M.C. de la Torre fills just such a gap. Using major total syntheses they explain the most varied problems and recommend ways out of such dilemmas: Problems at the start and end or a synthesis, difficult and unexpected reactivities of functional groups, problems due to steric properties and much more." "The result is a true wealth of information for any organic chemist. The essential tool for successful total synthesis."--Jacket
