Abstract Open in a separate window The last one hundred years have witnessed a dramatic increase in the power and reach of total synthesis. Their stories, and the background on which they were based, should serve to trace the evolution of the art of chemical synthesis to its present sharp condition, an emergence that occurred as a result of new theories and mechanistic insights, new reactions, new reagents and catalysts, and new synthetic technologies and strategies. Indeed, the advent of chemical synthesis as a whole must be considered as one of the most influential developments of the twentieth century in terms of its impact on society. Introduction I feel privileged to have been asked to participate in the symposium at the th ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia on August 18th, , celebrating the centennial anniversary of the Organic Division of the American Chemical Society, and for the opportunity to summarize my lecture and my experiences in this invited Perspective. That I was chosen to be one of those representing organic chemistry, in general, and the field of total synthesis, in particular, is a special honor, for it is within this field that some of the greatest accomplishments of organic chemistry over the last century can be found.

I just wanted to add to the previous reviewers comments and say that this is hands down the best organic text available today. I fell in love with it when I used it for a presentation. The way it is written makes it read like a story. The explanations are comprehensive and clear.
Every time I had a question, he promptly answered it in his book. I am jealous of his students who get to work for him. He must be a fantastic teacher! One person found this helpful.
I liked this book because it shows the syntheses that have been done in a simple way and explains the rethosynthetic pathway and some important aspects on reactions or chirality. For my class I covered all reagents with post-its and it helped me remember them later. Nobel Prize A great book to have for anyone who is serious about synthetic organic chemistry.
The more I read and study out from the book, the more I appreciate the beauty of it. Nicolaou and Sorensen's Classics in Total Synthesis is the most widely consulted title on organic synthesis.
As many have commented, this book is a must for every synthetic organic chemist, organic student and researcher. Released in , despite the advances in synthetic methodology, Nicolaou has presented some of the most remarkable and ingenious total syntheses from laboratories of the world's most prominent organic chemists. Molecules adopted include strychnine, prostaglandin, progesterone, vitamin B12, erythronolide B, monensin, endiandric acids, biotin, hirsutene, capnellene, methyl homosecodaphniphyllate, calicheamicin and more.
Nicaolaou has done an incredible favor to make the strategies more understandable and accesible. For each molecule, the total synthesis begins with a thorough retrosynthetic analysis. Sometimes more than one retrosynthetic routes are introduced in order to show the possibilities of finding the most efficient synthesis. Nicoloau then meticulously describle each step in synthesis with referral to important named reactions such as the Noyori assymmetric reduction, Luche reaction, Johnson Claisen rearrangement, Julia olefination, etc.
With such didatic skill and clarity, Nicoloau has taught the gist of synthesizing complex molecules from commercially available building blocks. A great way to use the book and learn organic synthesis would be to write down every single step on a separate piece of paper and understand what each step does in the overall total synthesis.
The synthesis steps and important reactions are presented in schemes with blue background sections, with emphasis on asymmetric synthesis, catalysts, stereochemistry and mechanism. Major reaction intermediates are presented at the margin.
Chemical synthesis relies heavily on chemical literature research. Nicoloau also provides numerous references in each total synthesis for further studies and consultation. Nicoloau has made organic synthesis fun and approachable.
Every synthetic chemist should own a copy of Nicolaou.
It is an amazing work detailing many of the greatest accomplishments attained in organic chemistry. As a student, I recommend it highly. See all 6 reviews.
