An Introduction to Synthesis Using Organocopper Reagents.
By G. H . Posner. J. Wiley & Sons, Chichester 1980. xvii,
140 pp., bound, L 12.50.
The subject of the monograph and the author’s name
could give rise to misunderstanding: it is in no way a review like Posner’s two contributions that appeared in “Organic Reactions” 119, 1 (1972) and 22, 253 (1975)l. The
principal aim here is to show how an organic synthesis is
planned and on what basis a choice between several possible solutions is made. The reader takes part in a course of
instruction organized from beginning t o end on the basis
of practical examples. About 30 syntheses of aromas and
flavors, growth substances, pheromones, alkaloids, sugars,
phenols, lactones, sesquiterpenes, prostaglandins, and steroids are dealt with one by one. The copper reagents enjoy
a privileged role as a means to this end, but occasionally
another organometal compound may prove to be more
useful and often in fact a quite different approach may
well be superior.
The examples have been carefully chosen and are expertly explained. Slight uncertainties appear to exist on
stereochemical questions. Thus, in connection with a synthesis of muscalure, the sex attractant of the housefly, it is
assumed that the Wittig reaction permits its preparation
only with Z / E ratios of about 85 :15 (p. 69), while since
1966 a procedure has been known which ensures more
than 99% cis-selectivity. In discussing manicon, an ant pheromone, an important point is left unmentioned (p. 81):
the compound contains an asymmetric carbon atom. Any
synthesis will be judged beforehand on how it handles the
problem of leading to a pure enantiomer.
To stimulate the reader toward more basic reading and
independent study, about a dozen references are given at
the end of each example. No single synthesis is given in all
its details; in each case only the basic features of possible
strategies are explained. In view of this policy, it is surprising to find at the end of the monograph, as an appendix,
four small detailed experimental procedures. The historical review given in the introduction also falls somewhat
outside the framework of the book. With a length of under
ten lines, it is not exhaustive. Several studies that together
with others probably gave the impetus to the later extensive systematic investigation of copper reagents have
passed unquoted (e.g. G . Kiibrich et al., J. Organornet.
Chem. 6, 194 (1966); T. Kaufmann et al., Angew. Chem.
79, 101 (1967); Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. Engl. 6, 85 (1967);
G . Wittig et al., Justus Liebigs Ann. Chem. 704, 91
The monograph is short but lively, careful, and intelligent. An exhaustive subject and author index facilitates
reference to the literature. With excellent presentation and
illustrations, the publishers have done their part toward
contributing to the great pleasure with which one leafs
through the book. It will please anyone who can wax enthusiastic about synthesis, and it will probably prove particularly suitable as a basis for group seminars.
