Organic synthesis is concerned with the construction of organic compounds via organic reactions. The synthesis of organic compounds has developed into one of the most important branches of organic chemistry. The first ten chapters emphasizes the principles of carbon-carbon bond formation and carbon-heteroatom bond formation, the carbon-carbon bond formation via the reaction of organometallic compounds, stabilized carbanions and related nucleophiles, ring closure/ring opening, reduction, oxidation, and protective group. The remaining four chapters focus on boron, phosphorus, silicon and selenium reagents. The last two chapters discuss asymmetric synthesis and selected syntheses.
