An extensive update of the classic reference on organic reactions in water
Published almost a decade ago, the first edition has served as the guide for research in this burgeoning field. Due to the cost, safety, efficiency, and environmental friendliness of water as a solvent, there are many new applications in industry and academic laboratories. More than forty percent of this extensively updated second edition covers new reactions.
For ease of reference, it is organized by functional groups. A core reference, Comprehensive Organic Reactions in Aqueous Media, Second Edition:
* Provides the most comprehensive coverage of aqueous organicreactions available
* Covers the basic principles and theory and progresses to applications
* Includes alkanes, alkenes, aromatics, electrophilic substitutions, carbonyls, alpha, beta-unsaturated carbonyls, carbon-nitrogen bonds, organic halides, pericyclic reactions, photochemical reactions, click chemistry, and multi-step syntheses?
* Provides examples of applications in industry
This is the premier reference for chemists and chemical engineers in industry or research, as well as for students in advanced-level courses.
