Synthetic and Natural Phenols-NY by J.H.P. Tyman (Eds.) is available to download free in pdf / epub format.
The chemistry of phenols tends to be ignored in organic chemical textbooks and to be lost amongst the many classes of functional derivatives. This volume is not intended to provide a textbook approach but rather to give an account of developments in phenol chemistry in the last two decades.
- Numerous phenolic systems have been covered in detail, e.g. phenolic propanoids.
- The emphasis throughout has been on synthesis, on what can be achieved by the use of phenolic intermediates and in the construction of phenolic end products.
- Many chapters enable the reader to refer to the original literature wherever possible.
- Various chapters provide a fund of tutorial material and problems for undergraduate studies and further, which will encourage perusal of the literature.
