Advances in Organic Synthesis is a book series devoted to the latest advances in synthetic approaches towards challenging structures. The series presents comprehensive reviews written by eminent authorities on different synthetic approaches to selected target molecules and new methods developed to achieve specific synthetic transformations or optimal product yields. Advances in Organic Synthesis is essential reading for all organic chemists in academia and the industry who wish to keep abreast of rapid and important developments in the field.

This volume presents the following reviews:

  • - Stereoselective Methodologies for the Synthesis of Acyclic Polyisoprenoids
  • - Monosubstituted Ferrocene-Containing Thermotropic Liquid Crystals
  • - Progress in the Chemistry of Phosphorothioates
  • - Kinetic Resolution Using Diastereoselective Acylating Agents as a Synthetic Approach to Enantiopure Amines
  • - Advances in the Synthesis of Functional α-Organyl gem-Bisphosphonates for Biomedical Applications


This volume of Advances in Organic Synthesis presents some recent exciting developments in synthetic organic chemistry. It covers a range of topics including important researches on novel approaches to the construction of complex organic compounds.

The chapters are written by authorities in the field and are mainly focused on synthesis of acyclic polyisoprenoids, ferrocene-containing thermotropic liquid crystals, phosphorothioates, kinetic resolution using diastereoselective acylating agents as a synthetic approach to enantiopure amines and synthesis of functional α-organyl gem-bisphosphonates for biomedical applications.

The book should prove to be a valuable resource for pharmaceutical scientists and postgraduate students seeking updated and critically important information about synthetic organic chemistry.

I hope that the readers will find these reviews valuable and thought-provoking so that they may trigger further research in the quest for new developments in the field.

I am thankful to the efficient team of Bentham Science Publishers, especially Dr. Faryal Sami (Manager Publications), Mr. Shehzad Iqbal Naqvi (Editorial Manager Publications) and Mr. Mahmood Alam (Director Publications).
