Domino Reactions in Organic Synthesis (Hardcover)

Book Description

Domino reactions enable you to build complex structures in one-pot reactions without the need to isolate intermediates—a dream comes true. In this book, the well-respected expert, Professor Lutz Tietze, summarizes the possibilities of this reaction type—an approach for an efficiant, economically benificial and ecological benign synthesis.

A definite must for every organic chemist.

From the Back Cover

The formation of complex molecules in only a few steps has always been a dream among chemists. That this is possible can be seen in nature, where complicated molecules such as palytoxin, maitotoxin and others are made in a highly efficient way. This dream has now almost become true for bench chemists with the development of domino reactions.
Domino reactions are the key to sequences of chemical transformations, which allow products to be synthesized in one-pot in a simple, efficient and elegant way without isolating any intermediates. Such reactions can not only be employed in basic research but also in applied chemistry and their use has a twofold advantage. On the one hand for industry, since the costs of labor, waste management, energy as well as chemicals decrease, and on the other hand their use is beneficial for our environment, since they help to save our natural resources and lighten the burden on our environment. It is therefore not surprising that this new concept has been rapidly adopted by the scientific community.
Containing over one thousand citations, this book covers novel reaction sequences right up to the middle of 2005 while also including important older work. Moreover, some recent work from as recently as 2006 is also discussed.
Written by the well-respected expert Professor Lutz Tietze and his students, Gordon Brasche and Kersten Gericke, who analyze the potential of this revolutionary concept, this is a definite must for every organic chemist at universities and research institutions, as well as those working in the chemicals industry.

Organic Solid State Reactions (Topics in Current Chemistry)

Organic Solid State Reactions (Topics in Current Chemistry).
By Fumio Toda
  • Publisher: Springer
  • Number Of Pages: 313
  • Publication Date: 2005-04-29
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 3540229825
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 978354022982
Product Description:

Most organic chemical reactions are carried out in an organic solvent, with no thought being given to the necessity to do so, with the associated problems of reaction efficiency and potential pollution problems. It was discovered very recently that most organic reactions can be conducted in the absence of solvent in the solid state. In many cases, the solid state reaction proceeds more easily and efficiently, with even greater selectivity than in solution, showing that molecules move easily and selectively in the solid state. There are many avenues to explore in studying organic solid state reactions, such as enantioselective reactions, which can easily be performed in an inclusion complex crystal with an optically active host. Catalytic reactions in the solid state are often more economically and ecologically profitable than the liquid state counterparts. The six contributions collected here present an excellent guide to the possibilities and opportunities afforded by solid state organic reactions.



The Investigation of Organic Reactions and Their Mechanisms

The Investigation of Organic Reactions and Their Mechanisms.
By Howard Maskill
  • Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell
  • Number Of Pages: 392
  • Publication Date: 2007-02-09
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 140513142X
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9781405131421
  • Binding: Hardcover

Product Description:

A range of alternative mechanisms can usually be postulated for most organic chemical reactions, and identification of the most likely requires detailed investigation. Investigation of Organic Reactions and their Mechanisms will serve as a guide for the trained chemist who needs to characterise an organic chemical reaction and investigate its mechanism, but who is not an expert in physical organic chemistry.

Such an investigation will lead to an understanding of which bonds are broken, which are made, and the order in which these processes happen. This information and knowledge of the associated kinetic and thermodynamic parameters are central to the development of safe, efficient, and profitable industrial chemical processes, and to extending the synthetic utility of new chemical reactions in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, and academic environments.

Written as a coherent account of the principal methods currently used in mechanistic investigations, at a level accessible to academic researchers and graduate chemists in industry, the book is highly practical in approach. The contributing authors, an international group of expert practitioners of the techniques covered, illustrate their contributions by examples from their own research and from the relevant wider chemical literature. The book covers basic aspects such as product analysis, kinetics, catalysis, and investigation of reactive intermediates. It also includes material on significant recent developments, e.g. computational chemistry, calorimetry, and electrochemistry, in addition to topics of high current industrial relevance, e.g. reactions in multiphase systems, and synthetically useful reactions involving free radicals and catalysis by organometallic compounds.

Howard Maskill is a former Senior Lecturer in the School of Natural Sciences, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, and most recently Visiting Professor, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

GLP Quality Audit Manual

GLP Quality Audit Manual





The United States Pharmacopeia is a compendium of quality control tests for drugs and excipients to be introduced into a medicinal formulation. It is published every year [1] by the United States Pharmacopoeial Convention. It forms the basis of enforcement actions by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and is the official pharmacopoeia of the U.S.A. and many other nations. Therefore, in case of a dispute, those methods for, amongst others, identification, assay and purity determination of a drug substance or excipient which are stated in the USP will be the legally binding ones.

Within the field the compendium is referred to simply as the USP. The initials USP are affixed to materials' names to indicate that they conform to the specifications in the USP and may be used medicinally.

The latest edition of the Indian Pharmacopoeia was published in 1996. It was updated by additions and amendments introduced through addendum 2000. Under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940, the Indian Pharmacopoeia is the legally recognised book of standards for the quality of drug substances and their preparations included therein. In view of the rapid developments is pharmaceutical sciences and technology, it became necessary to make further changes in the existing compendium. Addendum 2002 amends as well as adds new drugs and preparations to the Indian pharmacopoeia 1996 with a view to keeping the pharmacopoeia updated to the extent possible. Besides amending the existing monographs and appendices, it contains 19 new monographs including monographs of 12 antiretroviral drugs and 7 formulations of these substances. A new appendix on residual solvents has been incorporated. Some monographs have undergone major amendments. The appendix on high performance liquid chromatography has been replaced with a new version which also includes the ion chromatography. The Addendum 2002 is a companion volume to the Indian pharmacopoeia which is indispensable for all concerned with the quality of drugs.

Handbook of Laboratory Distillation, With an Introduction to Pilot Plant Distillation (Techniques&Instrumentation in Analytical Chemistry)

Handbook of Laboratory Distillation, With an Introduction to Pilot Plant Distillation (Techniques&Instrumentation in Analytical Chemistry).
By Erich Krell
  • Publisher: Elsevier Science & Technology
  • Number Of Pages: 524
  • Publication Date: 1981-11
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0444997237
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780444997234
The first edition of 1958 was sold out in a relatively short time. The second edition
followed in 1960. The book has become a standard work and has been translated
into Russian, English and Hungarian.
This edition has again been written with the object of giving an account of the
subject of laboratory distillat)ion including recent views and developments. The
literature has been reviewed up to the year 1979. The author has adopted the course
of dealing only with generally accepted facts ; there are still numerous problems in simple
and countercurrent distillation which have not yet been completely clarified and
in which there exist differences of opinion among various investigators. Distinct
trends in development have nevertheless been mentioned, in order to give an incentive
for further work. Owing to the large mass of material, a critical selection has been
necessary. An attempt has been made to introduce the mathematical deductions
and formulae required in laboratory work in a readily understandable form. Readers
with a mathematical turn of mind and those interested in particular problems will
find extensive references to the literature for further study.
The fundamental scheme of arrangement as applied in the first edition has
been retained. Section 5.1.3 has been extended to cover pilot plant distillation.
Section 4.2 now deals with fluidand interface dynamics. Chapter 8 could be drastically
shortened as there are a variety of components of distillation apparatus and the
pertaining measuring and control devices commercially available. The nomograms,
which were presented separately, have been inserted in the text. The references
for the various chapters have been rearranged and important new items added
to them. A great number of review articles serve to provide coinprehensive lists
of references for a longer period.
The book is intended primarily for physicists, chemists and engineers engaged in
chemical industry and in research or development centres, whose work includes
distillation on a laboratory or semi-technical scale. It will, however, also be useful
to undergraduates, chemical technologists and laboratory assistants as a source
of answers to inany questions in the field of practical distillation and separating
processes. It is hoped that it will prove a guide to better and inore economical
methods of operation for all these who have to carry out distillation in the
