Synthesis Using Vilsmeier Reagents presents a comprehensive account of the whole of Vilsmeier chemistry, including the formation of over 50 functional groups and over 50 different ring systems by means of Vilsmeier reagents. The highly structured ordering, by means of functional groups and extensive cross-referencing, enables even the non-specialist to gain an immediate grasp of the subject matter. The potential and versatility of Vilsmeier chemistry makes this major reference work essential for every industrial and academic chemistry library. It should be consulted by every practicing organic chemist and owned by every specialist.
