Provides comprehensive coverage of the types of reductions undergone by the various classes of organic chemistry. Discusses reductions according to what bond or functional group is reduced by different reagents. Gives special attention to selective reductions that are suitable for the reduction of one particular type of bond or function without affecting other bonds or functions present in the same molecule. Special emphasis is placed on enantioselective and diastereoselective reductions effected both by chiral reagents and by microorganisms. Reducing agents are correlated with both the starting compounds and the products of reduction. Includes discussions of methods, mechanisms, stereochemistry, and scopes of reducing agents. Selected laboratory procedures demonstrate the main reduction techniques. Correlation tables and thorough author and subject indexes make this book easy to use.

Milos Hudlicky, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.Review:
"Imagine a one-volume, concise compilation of every type of reduction ever reported and you begin to have an idea of the value of Milos Hudlicky's Reductions in Organic Chemistry, 2nd Edition--a monograph having the information compactness of a neutron star. . .Highly recommended to all practicing organic chemists. If one is planning a particular reduction reaction for the first time, then this is the place to start." --Journal of Natural Products
