A textbook on the laboratory identification and preparation of common organic compounds. This revised edition (first was 1988) adds a three- step preparation of diphenylacetylene by way of a Wittig reaction using ordinary potassium hydroxide as base. Also included are multistep conversion syntheses of hexaphenylbenzene and tetraphenyltriphenylene, which as a pair allow the investigation of the effect of pi-electron network planarity on UV/Vis absorption.
