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.
