Produktinformationen Protecting Groups
Protecting Groups is an invaluable survey of the most widely used protecting groups. It provides a critical survey of protecting group methodology and focuses on the most widely used protecting groups for the most common functional groups. Therefore it serves as an essential learning tool for advanced students and professionals in a broad range of disciplines involving organic synthesis. Protecting Groups is organized by functional group and places special emphasis on deprotection conditions applied to complex structures where selectivity is a key issue. The discussion of each protecting group is divided into three sections beginning with deprotection conditions, followed by methods of formation, and ending with some characteristic NMR data to aid the reader in identifying the contribution from the protecting group. At the end of each chapter is a list of reviews for the topics covered in that chapter. Features of the Third Edition: - Focuses on a relatively small number of commonly used protecting groups - Places emphasis on deprotection conditions - Uses schemes extensively - Has been reorganised and thoroughly revised and updated - Two new chapters on thiol and phosphate protecting groups have been added - The number of schemes has increased from 500 to 1200 - Colour has been introduced as an aid to visual retrieval - The number of references has increased from 1200 to 2270 with emphasis given to literature covering the period 1990-2001, Kocienski, practice and twenty-five problems for people who love to understand chemistry. (E. J. Corey) Philip Kocienski was born in Troy, New York in 1946. His love for organic chemistry, amply stimulated by Alfred Viola whilst an undergraduate at Northeastern University, was further developed at Brown University, where he obtained his PhD degree in 1971 under Joseph Ciabattoni. Postdoctoral study with George Büchi at MIT and later with Basil Lythgoe at Leeds University in England, confirmed his interest in the synthesis of natural products. He was appointed Brotherton Research Lecturer at Leeds in 1979 and Professor of Chemistry at Southampton University in 1985. He moved to the University of Glasgow in 1997 as Regius Professor of Chemistry. In 2000 he returned to Leeds as Professor of Organic Chemistry. He was awarded the Hickinbottom Fellowship and the Tilden, Simonsen and Pedlar Medals of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1997 and Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1998. In 2000, he was elected a Foreign Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences This new edition of "Protecting Groups" by Philip Kocienski is a valuable addition to the synthetic chemist's bookshelf and will find an appreciative audience. It contains an enormous amount of valuable and highly organized information. It is beautifully and clearly written; a pleasure to read. The introductory chapter provides a sophisticated overview of the application of protecting groups in contemporary syntheses. At the heart of the book are seven chapters which deal authoritatively and thoroughly with the protection of the various core functional groups, from carbonyl to amino. The closing epilog rounds off the presentation with an insight into the realities of synthetic
