A practical, hands-on guide that belongs in every organic chemistry lab A unique reference that consolidates essential information in a practical, user-friendly format, The Synthetic Organic Chemist's Companion provides a detailed description of how to perform synthetic reactions in real-world research settings, covering the most commonly used techniques. Packed with tips, data, and real-life examples, this handbook: * Is current, covering practical synthetic chemistry the way it is practiced in research labs today, and addressing topics such as SciFinder and related searching, microwave chemistry, ultrasonication, and solvent purification without distillation * Is comprehensive, taking the experimenter from the initial commercial compound and literature search all the way through to the full characterization of the pure product * Is well organized, following the process that the chemist goes through, from initiating to completing a synthetic experiment * Features insider tips and tricks that experienced synthetic chemists know * Includes numerous illustrations, lists, tables, and charts, including a solvent selection chart that makes information instantly accessible * Covers handling and preparing reagents, gases, and solvents, specific details for small-scale reactions, conducting the reaction (including temperature control), following up the reaction (including evaporation, vacuum, and purification), and identifying the product (including spectroscopy) A thorough, accessible reference for organic chemists, laboratory technicians, or students, this guide merits a prominent place in every lab. It's also a great textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students studying organic chemistry, medicine, pharmaceuticals, and polymers.
