The development of more effective routes to known materials and the production of new materials are important goals in many areas, including electronics, agriculture, medicine and textiles. Organic synthesis is central to achieving these goals. Comprehensive Organic Synthesisdraws together the common themes that underlie the many apparently disparate areas of organic chemistry which underpin synthetic strategies, thus providing a comprehensive overview of this important discipline.
The contributions have been organized to reflect the way in which synthetic chemists approach a problem. In terms of organic molecules, the work is divided into formation of carbon-carbon bonds, introduction of heteroatoms and heteroatom interconversions. Thus, Volumes 1-5 focus on carbon-carbon formation, but also include aspects of heteroatom introduction. Volumes 6-8 concentrate on interconversion of heteroatoms, but also deal with exchange of carbon-carbon bonds for carbon-heteroatom bonds. Organization of the chapters is along the theme of selectivity, which is a critical question in determining the suitability of a synthetic method. Volume 9 contains cumulative author and subject indexes.
Comprehensive Organic Synthesis will appeal to a wide audience. The set will be an essential reference work for all those seeking information on the solution of synthetic problems, whether they be experienced practitioners or chemists whose major interests lie outside organic synthesis. In addition, synthetic chemists requiring the essential facts in new areas, as well as students completely new to the field, will find Comprehensive Organic Synthesis an invaluable source, providing authoritative accounts of the essential facts and concepts.

1993 This work is truly international, being compiled by more than 250 authors from 15 countries. The editors and publisher are to be congratulated on bringing together so many individual contributions into a cohesive work, which will be a boon to organic chemists for years to come. -- Chemistry in Australia
Essential for all industrial and academic chemistry libraries serving advanced undergraduate and graduate systems. -- H.T. McKone, Saint Joseph College, Choice
January 1993 'I gazed and gazed but little thought, what wealth to me the show had brought'. What daffodils did to Wordsworth, this treatise did to me. Wordsworth saw 10,000 daffodils at a glance. Here I saw nearly 10,000 pages of text and 9000 references, together with an abundance of beautifully drawn structures and reaction schemes; here I shared the enthusiasm of over 250 distinguished chemists from across the globe as they unfurled the art of modern organic synthesis in nine fat volumes. This vast undertaking has been supremely well organised, employing internationally renowned synthetic chemists as editors.... This series presents a refreshing overview of modern synthetic methodology and provokes many tantalising questions and thoughts.... Anyone who synthesises organic compounds must have access to them. -- R.M. Scrowston, Chemistry in Britain
