Organic Chemist's Desk Reference, Third Edition


Caroline Cooper, Rupert Purchase
August 9, 2017

Launched in 1995 as a companion to the Dictionary of Organic Compounds, the Organic Chemist’s Desk Reference has been essential reading for laboratory chemists who need a succinct guide to the ‘nuts and bolts’ of organic chemistry — the literature, nomenclature, stereochemistry, spectroscopy...

Nonnitrogenous Organocatalysis

Andrew Harned
December 15, 2017

Since the 1990s the synthetic community has shown a growing interest in the development of catalytic reactions that employ entirely organic catalysts – so-called ‘organocatalysts’. With the current emphasis on green chemistry throughout the chemical industry, organocatalysis has become...
