Since 1921, Organic Syntheses has provided the chemistry community with annual collections of detailed, reliable, and carefully checked procedures for the synthesis of organic compounds. Organic Syntheses procedures may be accessed either via the tables of contents of individual volumes ("journal mode") or by conducting structure and keyword searches ("database mode").
Remember that "synthesis" is sometimes expressed in abbreviated form -- "synth" -- and may also appear as the word "preparation" -- or abbreviated as "prepn."
My Synthesis is written in German! What can I do?
Because much important work in organic chemistry was done during the early part of the twentieth century by German researchers, the synthesis you need may be included in a journal article written in German. Don't panic. You can often still get the information you need (perhaps from the abstract which is often available in English or from the diagrams of molecular structures). If you need to know a few key German words try one of these chemistry-specific resources:
