Name reactions

List and information about the named reactions in organic chemistry.


A name reaction is an chemical reaction named after its discoverer.

The naming is done for historical reasons, because of her probation in practice or because of the mnemonic benefits associated with the naming.

Knowledge of the individual names reactions are particularly useful for understanding of reaction mechanisms and for the planning of organic syntheses.

elow is a list of online available descriptions and mechanisms of the named chemical reactions.

Organic Reaction Mechanisms

This book, written for graduate and post-graduate chemistry students, provides an extensive coverage of various organic reactions, rearrangements and reagents, with emphasis on their applications in organic synthesis. In the chapters on oxidation and reduction a summary of oxidation and reduction of organic compounds with the different reagents is given in a tabular form for the convenience of students. The most commonly encountered reaction intermediates are discussed in detail. The applications of organic reagents are illustrated with examples while the chapters on prericyclic reactions and photochemical reactions were included in the second and third editions, respectively, in this fourth edition a new chapter on solved problems has been added, to enable students evaluate their understanding of the topic.

Name Reactions: A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms

The third edition contains major improvements over the previous edition. In addition to updated references, each reaction is now supplemented with two to three representative examples in synthesis to showcase its synthetic utility. Biographical sketches for the chemists who discovered or developed those name reactions have been included. Furthemore, the subject index is significantly expanded.

Different from other books on name reactions in organic chemistry, Name Reactions, A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms focuses on their mechanisms. It covers over 300 classical as well as contemporary name reactions. Each reaction is delineated by its detailed step-by-step, electron-pushing mechanism, supplemented with the original and the latest references, especially review articles. Thus, it is not only an indispensable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students for learning and exams, but also a good reference book for all chemists interested in name reactions.
