About this Textbook

The second edition includes five points of improvement: (a) Additional 16 name reactions have been supplemented; (b) I have corrected typos and a few dubious mechanisms in the first edition. I wish to thank Prof. Rick L. Danheiser of Massa­ chusetts Institute of Technology and Mr. Yiqian Lian of Michigan State Univer­ sity for invaluable comments and suggestions. I have also incurred many debts of gratitude to Prof. Brian. M. Stoltz of California Institute of Technology and his students, Eric Ashley, Doug Behenna, Dan Caspi, Neil Garg, Blake Greene, Jeremy May, Sarah Spessard, Uttam Tambar, Raissa Trend, and Ryan Zeidan for proofreading the final draft of the second edition; (c) The references are expanded and updated; (d) A more thorough index has been implemented so the reader may navigate through the book more easily; (e) The short descriptions of name reactions given as mnemonics seem to be helpful to both novices and veterans. As a result, I added the descriptions for most reactions. Finally, I am grateful for permission to use the postage stamps on the inner covers from respective postal authorities, who still retail the copyrights of those stamps. Jack Li Ann Arbor, Michigan, May 2003 Preface to the first edition What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as 1 sweet.

Reviews

from S.R. Waldvogel, Adv. Synth. Catal. 2004, 346, 91:

"Since the second edition has increased tremendously in quality, it is highly recommended to all synthetically oriented chemists as compulsory reading. With a relativele comprehensive collection of modern named reactions, including more recent discoveries that are not found in standard works, this book surpasses previous monographs on this topic and should find its way into every good scientific library."

The best books are very reader friendly and this publication is heading in that direction. Organic chemistry researchers, students and teachers will make good use of this book.

From the reviews of the third edition:

"Like its predecessors, this edition of Name Reactions covers over 300 classical and contemporary name reactions, with each entry including the name of the reaction, a short description of it, the step-by-step mechanism, and a list of references. Improvements to this edition include updated references, two to three examples of applications of the featured reaction … brief biographical sketches of the discoverers and developers of the reaction in question, and an expanded subject index." (JACS, Vol. 129 (2), 2007)

"Name Reactions … has been expanded significantly as compared to the Second Edition. The book contains a multitude of new name reactions and, as a new feature, reaction examples from the current literature. Each name reaction is illustrated with a reaction scheme, an accurate and detailed mechanism, and two interesting examples from current work. In addition, numerous up-to-date citations are provided that can facilitate an initial literature search. … ‘Name Reactions’ is an especially useful book for obtaining a first introduction to a multitude of important and also current name reactions. Moreover, the mechanistic explanations in the form of excellent schemes provide a basis for advanced students to practice these mechanisms. A number of errors from the Second Edition have been corrected, and this fact together with the successful enhancements make a good case for purchasing this latest edition."
