Long gone are the days when synthetic publications included parallel preparative experiments to document reproducibility of the experimental protocols and when journals required such documentation. The new Proven Synthetic Methods Series addresses concerns to chemists regarding irreproducibility of...

Polymers and Pyridazines

1st Edition

Péter Tétényi
May 29, 2019

In the past few years, a few articles have been published on the solid-phase synthesis of pyridazine derivatives. These methods apply to intermediates weakly bound to polymers, as a result of which the ester bond is cleaved easily, either during ring closure or right after it. There are few...
