Volume 2 deals mainly with the addition reactions of delocalized carbanions (enolates) and their synthetic relatives (metalloenamines, enol ethers, allyl organometallics) with carbonyl compounds, imines and iminium ions. Major emphasis is placed on C-C bond-forming reactions such as the aldol and Mannich reactions. Acylation reactions are also included in this volume. Several topics that have not previously been reviewed are covered, including the use of enzymatic aldol reactions in synthesis and the Passerini-Ugi reactions.

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
