Introduction

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 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:

  • - Electroluminescent polymers - a review on synthesis from organic compounds
  • - Remarkable advances in the asymmetric synthesis of biologically active natural compounds from the advent of chiral auxiliaries
  • - The chemistry of ynamides and their application in organic synthesis
  • - Carbon-heteroatom bond formation for medium ring heterocycles
  • - Tin(ii) salts: versatile and efficient lewis acid catalysts in reactions to add value to the glycerol and terpenic alcohols
  • - (E)-n-methyl-1-(methylthio)-2-nitroethenamine (nmsm) as a versatile ambiphilic synthon in organic synthesis

Preface

This volume of Advances in Organic Synthesis presents 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. Topics covered in this volume include updates in asymmetric synthesis of natural compounds, ynamide chemistry and its application in organic synthesis, heterocyclic chemistry, application of tin(II) salts in specific organic reactions and the use of (E)-N-methyl-1- (methylthio)-2-nitroethenamine (NMSM) as an ambiphilic synthon in organic synthesis.

This book should prove to be a valuable resource source for organic chemists, pharmaceutical scientists and postgraduate students seeking updated and critically important information on recent important developments in 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 for the timely efforts made by the editorial personnel, especially Mr. Mahmood Alam (Director Publications), Mr. Obaid Sadiq (in-charge Books Department) and Ms. Asma Ahmed (Manager Publications).
