An invaluable guide to name reactions and reagents forhomologations

Name Reactions for Homologations, Part I of Wiley'sComprehensive Name Reactions series comprises a comprehensivetreatise on name reactions for homologations. With contributionsfrom world-recognized authorities in the field, this referenceoffers an up-to-date, concise compilation of the most commonly usedand widely known name reactions and reagents. Part Idiscusses Organometallics, Carbon-chain Homologation, and RadicalChemistry.

Arranged alphabetically by name reactions, the listingprovides:

  • Description of the reaction
  • Historical perspective
  • A mechanism for the reaction
  • Variations and improvements on the reaction
  • Synthetic utilities of the reaction
  • Experimental details
