Recommended by leading chemists

“Science of Synthesis is an indispensable tome of chemical information organized in an intuitive and logical way. It contains information on nearly every aspect of chemical reactivity and, for me, is the “go-to” resource for rapidly learning about a new area.”

“Science of Synthesis has done a nice job of establishing a useful resource for synthetic chemists including some important contributions from my industry colleagues. It’s important to remember that industry has considerable expertise here, and this provides a powerful forum for scientific exchange.”

“To me, the true value of Science of Synthesis is its systematic approach to reprocess the state-of-the-art for any functional group. When I quickly need a competent overview of the chemistry of this or that class of compounds, Science of Synthesis is my immediate choice. Conventional review articles do usually not provide this information.”

Martin Oestreich

TU Berlin, Germany

“I strongly recommend Science of Synthesis because it not only provides an effective method to find information for your research, but also is a very useful resource to organic chemists and graduate students. From SoS, you can easily find the history and development of each type of reaction. […] Try it, I really believe you will find something different here.”
