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 these 7 reviews:

  • - Recent advances in copper-catalyzed heterocyclic syntheses
  • - Application of modern green chemistry methods in the synthesis of quinolines, quinazolines and quinazolinones
  • - Electroluminescence polymers-a review on synthesis by organic compounds
  • - Multicomponent approach for the synthesis of xanthenes
  • - From atoms to macromolecules: 100 years of polymer research
  • - An overview of oxidizing and reducing agents in total synthesis
  • - Amino acid-derived ionic liquids: novel biodegradable catalytic systems for green synthesis of heterocycles

Audience: Organic chemists, chemical engineers interested in chemical synthesis / synthetic techniques, polymer chemists.


The 16th volume of Advances in Organic Synthesis presents recent exciting developments in synthetic organic chemistry. The chapters are written by eminent researchers in the field. The topics include advances in copper-catalyzed heterocyclic syntheses, modern green chemistry methods, review on electroluminescence polymers, synthesis of xanthene, evolution of polymer chemistry, and lastly, an overview on oxidizing and reducing agents in total synthesis.

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 thought-provoking, and that they 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, especially the editorial personnel Mr. Mahmood Alam (Editorial Director), Mr. Obaid Sadiq (Incharge eBooks Department), and Ms. Asma Ahmed (Manager Publications).
