Volume 3 covers carbon-to-carbon single bond forming reactions involving sp3, sp2 and sp carbon centers, but only those which do not involve additions to C-X &pgr;-bonds. The volume first compares and contrasts the alkylation reactions of all types of sp3 carbon nucleophiles and also covers vinyl and alkynyl carbanions. Following on from Volume 2, a separate section covers Friedel-Crafts alkylation reactions, which is complemented by discussions of polyene cyclizations and electrophilic transannular cyclizations in synthesis. Coupling reactions leading to &agr;-bond formation, and involving all types of combinations ofsp3, sp2 and sp carbon centers are next covered, including those reactions based on pinacol, acyloin and phenol oxidative coupling reactions, and also the Kolbe reaction. Rearrangement reactions, leading to carbon-to-carbon &agr;-bond formation, are often used in a clever manner in synthesis. The volume includes all those rearrangement reactions based on intermediate carbonium ions and carbanions, and also includes the benzil-benzilic acid and the Wolff rearrangements. The volume closes with coverage of carbonylation reactions, and the use of carbene insertion reactions into the C-H bond in synthesis.

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
