Science of Synthesis

Science of Synthesis provides a critical review of the synthetic methodology developed from the early 1800s to-date for the entire field of organic and organometallic chemistry. It combines the information in Houben-Weyl (literature from 1800+) and the newer reviews of the literature from 2000+ in the Science of Synthesis series.
