About this book

Provides a rigorous account of the principles and practice of experimental organic chemistry taking students from their first day in the laboratory right through to research work. A microscale approach has been integrated, alongside conventional manipulaions, bringing it in line with current laboratory practice.

[the authors] have knit practice together with theory in a way that has seldom been equalled... [They] say they set out to enthuse people: with this reviewer they succeeded - Times Higher Education Supplement If you teach, supervise or perform experimental organic chemistry you will probably want this book beside you... This is a timely, attractively produced book and is excellent value - Chemistry in Britain
