Hydroboration and Organic Synthesis: 9-Borabicyclo [3.3.1] nonane (9-BBN) by: Ranjit S. Dhillon

Hydroboration and Organic Synthesis: 9-Borabicyclo [3.3.1] nonane (9-BBN) by: Ranjit S. Dhillon.
Publisher: Springer | 18 May 2007 | ISBN: 3540490752 | Pages: 586 | PDF | 21 MB

9-Borabicyclo [3.3.1]nonane, a commercially available reagent, is the most versatile hydroborating reagent to synthesize organoboranes (B-R-9-BBN). The reagent exhibits remarkable regio-, chemo-, and stereoselectivity during hydroboration reactions. The organoboranes can be converted to C-H, C-O, C-N, C-S, C-halogen, C-metal and above all C-C bonds. In addition, the suitable substituted / unsaturated R of B-R-9-BBN can be utilized to produce dienes, enynes, allenes etc. with defined stereochemistry. 9-BBN’s derivatives have been elegantly used for the asymmetric reduction of ketone moiety. Diels-Alder and Suzuki reactions have expanded the utility of 9-BBN for the synthesis of a variety of organic compounds required for industry. Consequently, this vast field in the form of a book will be helpful to synthetic organic chemists for easy access to literature, required for chemical transformations.

The 100 Most Important Chemical Compounds: A Reference Guide

Richard L. Myers, "The 100 Most Important Chemical Compounds: A Reference Guide".
Greenwood | 2007 | ISBN: 0313337586 | 352 pages | PDF | 3,3 MB

“Myers offers his criteria for inclusion on his list--compounds that "were chosen because of their importance to health, industry, and society, and because of their historical impact." Although one can criticize that alternative compounds have been left off any list such as this, there are a wide variety of compounds represented, including pharmaceuticals, natural products, and commodity chemicals, alongside obvious entries such as water and ammonia. Entries are arranged alphabetically by compound name. Each entry is two to four pages long and includes basic chemical information (Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number, select physical properties, molecular formula), followed by a narrative discussing the compound's history, significance to society, and general chemistry and use. However, the human side is not forgotten. Roles of many significant scientists, inventors, and companies are detailed in the development and use of these compounds. The book includes a concise yet informative introductory chapter dealing with basic chemistry principles and concepts, as well as a glossary and a table of common and ancient names of substances.... Recommended. General readers; lower- and upper-division undergraduates; two-year technical program students.”–Choice

“Giving both general and scientific information that might be useful to a variety of users, this is recommended for large public and college/university libraries, especially those serving chemistry departments.”–Library Journal

“The 100 Most Important Chemical Compounds is filled with fascinating information. It concludes with a glossary of chemical terms and an extensive bibliography. The author proposes that this book would be especially useful for science teachers and for students needing a general review of common chemical compounds. It is also a wonderful source for persons interested in the history of science.”–Association for Women in Science

“The author has included anecdotal information about people, places, and products pertaining to the compound, as well as useful historical information....The clear writing makes this volume accessible to lay readers....A useful addition.”–School Library Journal

“[T]he text in The 100 Most Important Chemical Compounds adds another dimension to information about chemicals. This title will be useful for chemistry reference collections in both large and small libraries.”–Booklist.
