5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have in a chemistry library
This is an essential reference collection for any chemistry library. It has tons of organic reagents listed alphabetically, with typical applications schemes and specific references to procedures and particular uses. It has MODERN reagents and most of the references are from the 1980s and later, so you can actually easily find the referenced articles and follow the...

This is an essential reference collection for any chemistry library. It has tons of organic reagents listed alphabetically, with typical applications schemes and specific references to procedures and particular uses. It has MODERN reagents and most of the references are from the 1980s and later, so you can actually easily find the referenced articles and follow the reported procedures exactly, since they won't be obsolete. It is easy to read, it gives structures, physical data, handling and storage information for every single one of the listed reagents.
I used it regularly throughout my graduate student career and I could not imagine a chemistry library without one. I would buy my own copy if only I could afford it!
