Organic Synthesis Workbook II will be the answer to many young organic chemists’ prayers. It is a set of problems of extraordinary diversity set within the framework of large syntheses. This gives the young authors (all members of Professor Lutz Tietze’s research group at Gottingen) the freedom to reveal details or to conceal them. The reader might be asked simply to furnish a reagent for a given step, or more challenging questions like explaining a mechanism or a stereoselectivity. Even prediction appears as some of the intermediates in the big syntheses are blank spaces to be filled in. The layout is intriguing - one wants to read on, as in the best novels, first to find out what happens and then to find out how it was done. Needless to say, just turn the page and the answers appear. And just because you couldn’t do that problem, you’re not handicapped when it comes to the next.
You should not suppose that this book is simply about organic synthesis. It has a lot to offer to the general student of organic chemistry at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level. The problems vary in difficulty but there is something to suit us all. The rewards of tackling the problems seriously will be great. I am very enthusiastic about this book and I know a lot of readers will share my enthusiasm.

Preface
Thank you for purchasing this book; we hope you will enjoy it.
Based on a seminar in the research group of Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. L. F. Tietze at the University of Gottingen, Germany, eight members of the group contributed to a collection of synthesis problems in 1998, and this was published by Wiley-VCH under the title “Organic Synthesis Workbook”. Encouraged by the success of this approach toward understanding organic synthesis we decided to write a sequel containing more recent chemistry. In addition we have included carbohydrate and industrial scale chemistry.
We have not changed the proved original concept, and therefore we hope that those who already know Organic Synthesis Workbook will feel at home.
This book contains 16 independent chapters, based on publications of well known scientists.
Each chapter is divided into five parts. First, the Introduction will give you a brief view of the target molecule and its background. The Overview shows the complete synthetic problem on two pages. In the Synthesis section the reaction sequence is divided into individual Problems. Afterwards Hints are given to assist you in solving the problem. Each further hint will reveal more and more of the solution; therefore it might be useful to cover the remaining page with a piece of paper. The Solution will show if your answer is correct. In the Discussion section the problem is explained in detail. However this book cannot serve as a substitute for an organic textbook. After the last problem, the Conclusion briefly comments on the synthesis, highlighting the key steps. The original references can be found in the Literature section for further reading.
We are very grateful for the support we received while writing this book, in particular to our PhD adviser Prof. Lutz F. Tietze and the members of his research group. We would also like to thank
H. Bell, H. Braun, G. Brasche, S. Hellkamp, and S. Holsken for proof reading. J. A. Gewert, J. Gorlitzer, S. Gotze, J. Looft, P. Menningen, T. Nobel, H. Schirock and C. Wulff are the authors of the first problems workbook which made this sequel possible.
