Product Description

From the Back Cover

Science of Synthesis: Houben-Weyl Methods of Molecular Transformations is the entirely new edition of the acclaimed reference series, Houben-Weyl, the standard synthetic chemistry resource since 1909. This new edition is published in English and will comprise of 48 volumes published between the years 2000 and 2008.

Science of Synthesis is a quality reference work developed by a highly esteemed editorial board to provide a comprehensive and critical selection of reliable organic and organometallic synthetic methods. Science of Synthesis is designed to be the first point of reference when searching for a synthesis strategy.

This volume covers compounds of the group 15 metaloids (As, Sb, Bi) and Silicon. In Volume 4, there are single chapters devoted to each of the three group 15 elements, and then 42 chapters for the various kinds of silicon-containing compounds used in organic synthesis. The chapters are organized by the functionality attached to the element, and appear in an order determined by the rules used for the whole series of Science of Synthesis, with the space given to each determined both by the range of chemistry that needs to be described and by the importance of the functional arrangement in synthesis.
