Laboratory experience equips students with techniques that are necessary for professional practice. Advanced Organic Synthesis: A Laboratory Manual focuses on a mechanistic background of key reactions in organic chemistry, gives insight into well-established trends, and introduces new developments in the field. The book features experiments performed by primary author Dmitry Liskin while he was a graduate student, providing a real-life quality to the experiments by using examples that have actually been conducted. It also includes recent experiments that have been published in peer-reviewed journals. The experiments are presented in a brief and simple manner, including bulleted lists of the required materials and equipment as well as step-by-step walkthroughs. Each experiment also carefully details safety issues and waste disposal methods. Emphasizing techniques and approaches used in more advanced labs, Advanced Organic Synthesis: A Laboratory Manual gives undergraduates the theoretical knowledge and practical experience they need to succeed at more advanced levels of research involving organic synthesis at the graduate or industrial level.
