Organic Reactions, Volume 54

As with previous volumes in this acclaimed series, Volume 54 is devoted to a specific process with important applications in organic and medicinal chemistry. In two major parts, expert contributions address aromatic substitution by the S-RN1 reaction and the oxidation of carbonyl compounds with organohypervalent iodine reagents. The authors draw on their experience with the processes surveyed, presenting topics from the preparative viewpoint and discussing limitations, interfering influences, effects of structure, and how to select experimental techniques.
