More About This Title Organic Reaction Mechanisms 2011


The only book series to summarize the latest progress on organic reaction mechanisms, Organic Reaction Mechanisms, 2011 surveys the development in understanding of the main classes of organic reaction mechanisms reported in the primary scientific literature in 2011. The 47th annual volume in this highly successful series highlights mechanisms of stereo-specific reactions. Reviews are compiled by a team of experienced editors and authors, allowing advanced undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and chemists to rely on the volume's continuing quality of selection and presentation.
