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.

Contents of this volume include:

  • - Metal-Free and Acid-Free Activation of Carbonyl Moiety Using Molecular Halogens or N-Halamines
  • - Anti-algal Study on Polymeric Coating Containing Metal-Metal Oxide Core-shell Nanoparticles
  • - Functionalized Catalyst for Efficient Nucleophilic and Electrophilic Fluorination
  • - Synthesis and Applications of Small Fluorescent Molecules
  • - Recent Achievements in the Synthesis of Aromatic Five-Membered Heterocycles Containing One Heteroatom
  • - Basic Ionic Liquid Catalyzed Cycloaddition Reactions for the Synthesis of 1, 2, 3-Triazoles


The 15th volume of Advances in Organic Synthesis presents recent exciting developments in synthetic organic chemistry. The chapters are written by authorities in the field. The topics include a review of molecular halogens and Nhalamines in the context of their applications as acid- and metal-free catalysts, recent fluorination methods involving phase transfer catalysts, synthesis and applications of small fluorescent molecules, achievements in the synthesis of aromatic five-membered heterocycles containing one heteroatom, and lastly, a discussion about triazole synthesis under green conditions in basic ionic liquids.

This volume should prove to be a valuable resource 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 thoughtprovoking 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 (Editorial Director), Mr. Obaid Sadiq (in-charge Books Department) and Ms. Asma Ahmed (Manager Publications).
