Item description for Name Reactions: A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms by Jie Jack Li...

The third edition contains major improvements over the previous edition. In addition to updated references, each reaction is now supplemented with two to three representative examples in synthesis to showcase its synthetic utility. Biographical sketches for the chemists who discovered or developed those name reactions have been included. Furthemore, the subject index is significantly expanded.

Different from other books on name reactions in organic chemistry, Name Reactions, A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms focuses on their mechanisms. It covers over 300 classical as well as contemporary name reactions. Each reaction is delineated by its detailed step-by-step, electron-pushing mechanism, supplemented with the original and the latest references, especially review articles. Thus, it is not only an indispensable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students for learning and exams, but also a good reference book for all chemists interested in name reactions.

Some praise for the previous edition:

"This is an excellent book for arrow pushing and learning organic name reactions as encountered in graduate school . . . Li's book contains reactions of all mechanistic classes . . . The book is nicely balanced, containing modern-day reactions for assembly of stereocomplex molecules. Reactions such as the Corey-Bakshi-Shibata reduction are analyzed. This book is a good reference text that fills a void that has existed for some time. It is both an excellent tool for learning and a good reference source."

Name Reactions: A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms   Dec 17, 2007
i received the book in good condition.
The book is very valuable for any org. chemist,be it Acadamic or Industrial.we have the old edition also. I use it to train the youngsters.
worth to buy.
Awesome book  May 10, 2007
This book is nice for writing the basics of mechanism. There are some other books available in market. But I will recommend this book because they are short and concise. This third edition is more or less similar to second edition.
best name reactions book  Mar 23, 2006
this book is a really great resource for organic chemists. it has all the main name reactions in alphabetical order, and does a good job showing not only the overall reaction, but also the step-by-step mechanism as well. it also has references listed for each reaction, for further clarification. i recommend it for any organic chemist as part of their library.
The named reactions bible  Aug 16, 2005
This book is fantastic! It has a complete set of every important named reaction with its respective mechanism and literature references. The simple layout makes this book very user friendly. The mechanisms are easy to follow and the references are very useful making this book excellent for use at any level from undergraduate to graduate and beyond. This book is a definite must have for anyone studying advanced organic chemistry, as it is the named reactions bible.
not bad if you can't write a mechanism...  Aug 6, 2005
Basically, all this book does is draw mechanisms for a whole bunch of name reactions. It doesn't really tell you all that much and only gives one example (for which the mechanism is drawn out)or each. Definately not recomended if you know how to push arrows and write a mechanism. Not at all what I was expecting.
