Compilations of Reagents

Handbook of Reagents for Organic Synthesis

These handbooks are actually collections of various reagents from EROS (described above) that have been compiled into smaller handbooks of similar types of reagents.  Some we have in print and others are available online.

Print Volumes:

  • Catalyst Components for Coupling Reactions (CHEM 547.1395 C2803 2008)
  • Fluorine-Containing Reagents (CHEM 547.2 F673 2007)
  • Reagents for Direct Functionalization of C-H Bonds (CHEM 547.01 R228 2007)
