Organic synthesis with lanthanides has experienced enormous growth in the last ten years. Numerous synthetic reactions have been explored by the use of lanthanide reagents, and some of these have become indispensablein modern organic synthesis.
This book describes the remarkable scope and potential of these reagents, addressing this rapidly growing area from a practical point-of-view. The author has summarized synthetically useful and novel organic transformations, emphasizing the characteristic properties of lanthanide reagents. These transformations are concisely and skillfully presented in many schemes and tables, with actual illustrative preparations.
The coverage includes the use of lanthanide metals, the powerful divalent reagents such as samarium (II) iodide, the key trivalent reagents and their particular role as catalysts in selective reductions and cycloadditions, and the tetravalent lanthanides as oxidants.

Alan Katritzky, educated at Oxford, held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before migrating in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he is Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. He has trained some 800 graduate students and post-docs, and lectured and consulted world-wide. He led the team, which produced "Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry" and its sequel "CHECII", has edited "Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Vols. 1 through 86" and conceived the plan for "Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations". He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit which publishes "Archive for Organic Chemistry" (ARKIVOC) electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org). Honors include 11 honorary doctorates from 8 countries and membership or foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.
