Many laboratories were reluctant at first to embrace dianion chemistry as part of the standard reaction repertoire. Today, however, researchers can comfortably draw upon the dianion literature to choose an abundance of reagents and strategies that are reliable, effective, and, in many cases, the best answer to a synthetic problem.

This interesting book introduces, surveys, and consolidates carbon-based dianion chemistry. Chapter 1 serves as an introduction and as an index of the various dianions covered in the book. Chapters 2 through 5 cover the ensemble of dianion types designated by their first deprotonation site. Each chapter contains an experimental section that explains relevant protocols.
