Process Chemistry News
Specialised Session at Modern Synthetic Methods & Chiral USA, Orlando May 2014.
The session consisted of 5 presentations which are summarised below with the summaries concentrating specifically on the metathesis reactions presented, although several speakers also described some very interesting chemistry used to make the metathesis substrates.
Chemical Process Technology

Wiley, 2013, 2nd edition (softback) ISBN 978-1-444-32025-1 (552 pp)
The first edition of this textbook appeared about 12 years earlier so this new edition, with 35% new material, is particularly welcome.
I was looking through SYNFACTS recently and noted the Petasis Borono-Mannich reaction (SYNFACTS, 2014, 10, (2), 134) which reviewed a paper from Org Lett, 2013, 15, 5944.
