Book Review: Classics in Total Synthesis – K. C. Nicolaou, E. J. Sorensen

Targets, Strategies, Methods K. Similar to its predecessors and completing the trilogy, this textbook analyzes the syntheses in a didactic manner, with several chapters including mini-reviews of key methodologies, and an emphasis on the history, mechanism, scope, and generality of the reactions.

Thus, one finds surveys on current topics of interest such as organocatalysis Chapter 7: The authors then carefully explain each synthetic step and give hints on alternative methods and potential pitfalls. However, the opportunity to similarly illustrate other parts of the chapter has not been taken; especially in the introduction, figures or graphics in color might have improved the accessibility of the contents.
