Book Review Micro Reaction Technology in Organic Synthesis. By Charlotte Wiles (Chemtrix BV, The Netherlands) and Paul Watts (Universtiy of Hull, UK). CRC Press (an imprint of Taylor & Francis Group): Boca Raton. 2011. xxii + 432 pp. $139.95. ISBN: 978-1-4398-2471-9. The use of continuous flow methods and microreactors for chemical synthesis is currently garnering significant attention from researchers in both academic and industrial laboratories. However, as is common with most emerg- ing technologies, adoption, development, and refinement of these new techniques can be slow and often remain distinctly alien to many of those within the field. With this in mind, Wiles and Watts present their treatise Micro Reaction Technology in Organic Synthesis as an up-to-date account aimed at both researchers new to the field and those already well versed in this subject. Written with the synthesis chemist in mind and weighing in at over 400 pages (with more than 650 references cited, the most recent being from 2010), this monograph can be considered a comprehensive introductory compendium to the world of flow chemistry. From the perspective of those actively engaged in synthetic organic chemistry, the book is organized in a logi- cal manner with an appropriate level of technical detail. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Flow Chemistry Springer Journals
