This book is comprised of a series of exercises in synthetic organic chemistry based around recently published syntheses. Each exercise gives a reference to the original work, a synthetic scheme in which either structures or reagents have been omitted, a series of questions on the exercise, and in most cases references to related literature and useful reviews.
The exercises are designed to provide challenges for people with a wide range of backgrounds, from undergraduates to academic staff and industrial group leaders, and they enable the readers to increase their vocabulary of synthetic transformations. Taking a novel approach, this volume encourages active participation; instead of absorbing standard strategies, readers are asked to propose solutions to set problems. The exercises are ideal for group discussions of organic chemistry.

Russell Thomas, Research Scientist, both at GlaxoWellcome S.p.A..Review:
Ghiron and Thomas have produced a very good set of synthetic chemistry problems which are idel
`Ghiron and Thomas have produced a very good set of synthetic chemistry problems which are ideally suited for group discussions. The problems should challenge and stimulate synthetic organic chemists of varying abilities and I am certain that my research group will have many thought provoking discussions based upon the problems provided in this book.' Mike Shipman, University of Exeter, Synthesis, October 1997
`an extremely useful and informative text based on a series of problem-solving exercises...Thhis book will be a valuable addition both to academic and industrial departments, providing a basis for group discussions and problem-solving classes as well as for individual study.' Chris Willis Education in Chemistry, November 1998.
