Description - Organic Reactions by Larry E. Overman
This series provides the most comprehensive and highly focused treatment of important organic reactions currently available. All volumes of Organic Reactions (including this one) are collections of chapters each devoted to a single reaction or a definitive phase of a reaction, of wide applicability. The authors have had experience with the processes surveyed. The subjects are presented from the preparative viewpoint and particular attention is given to limitations, interfering influences, effects of structure and the selection of experimental techniques. Each chapter includes several detailed procedures illustrating the significant modifications of the method.

Author Biography - Larry E. Overman
Larry Overman is Professor of Chemistry at the University of California at Irvine. He obtained a B.A. degree from Earlham College in 1965, and completed his doctoral dissertation in 1969 with Professor Howard W. Whitlock, Jr., at the University of Wisconsin. After a NIH postdoctoral fellowship with Professor Ronald Breslow at Columbia University, he joined the faculty at the University of California, Irvine, in 1971. Professor Overman's research interests center on the invention of new reactions and strategies in organic synthesis and the total synthesis of natural products and their congeners. Using synthesis strategies developed largely in his laboratory, Professor Overman's group has completed total syntheses of more than 80 structurally complex natural products.
