Organic Synthesis: Strategy and Control is a sequel to Stuart Warren’s bestseller Organic Synthesis: The Disconnection Approach. The ‘Disconnection’ book concentrated on the planning behind the synthesis of compounds.

The two themes of this new book are strategy and control: solving problems either by finding an alternative strategy or by controlling any established strategy to make it work.

The book is divided into five sections that deal with selectivity, carbon-carbon single bonds, carbon-carbon double bonds, stereochemistry and functional group strategy. Interpenetrating this structure, the 36 chapters start with classic methods and progress to modern methods and modern strategic considerations. Heterocyclic chemistry is treated throughout the book with full mechanistic explanations as part of organic chemistry rather than a separate mystery. 

  • A comprehensive, practical account of the key concepts involved in synthesising compounds.

  • Takes a mechanistic approach, which explains reactions and gives guidelines on how reactions might behave in different situations.  

  • Focuses on reactions that really work rather than those with limited application.

  • Extensive, up-to-date references in each chapter.

Students and professional chemists familiar with Organic Synthesis: The Disconnection Approach will enjoy the leap into a book designed for chemists at the coalface of organic synthesis.
