Description - Classics in Total Synthesis III by K. C. Nicolaou
K.C. Nicolaou - Winner of the Nemitsas Prize 2014 in Chemistry Retaining his excellent, proven approach, world-famous chemist and passionate teacher K.C. Nicolaou compiles here the important strategies and tools employed to construct complex molecules. For a total of 42 syntheses of 25 challenging natural products he explains all the key steps of the synthetic pathway, highlighting the major developments in blue-boxed sections for easier understanding, and contrasting these to other synthetic methods. Similar to its predecessors and completing the trilogy, this textbook analyzes the syntheses in a didactic manner, with several chapters including mini-reviews of key methodologies, and an emphasis on the history, mechanism, scope, and generality of the reactions. In contrast to the first two volumes, this new one features full-color frontispieces. A wonderful tool for learning and teaching and a must-have for all current and future organic and biochemists.
