Series: title


The 72nd edition of Organic Reactions comprises two chapters that contain overviews of reactions that can be broadly thought of functionalization and de-functionalization reactions. The first covers the introduction of nitrogen-containing functional groups by amination of carbon-based nucleophiles. It provides guidance on selecting the appropriate aminating agent--whether haloamines, hydroxylamines, diazonium salts, azo compounds, or azides--for different types of carbon nucleophile. The second covers the removal of the functional group, the sulfone. Two kinds of desulfonylation processes are presented: reductive desulfonylation (replacement with hydrogen) and reductive eliminations (formation of multiple bonds).
