Patai’s Chemistry of Functional Groups The most complete resource in functional group chemistry now including THE SMART ARTICLE Years of Excellence 1964 - 2014 Celebrate with us! Download a virtual issue of sample content and more at: www.wiley.com/go/patai50 Celebrating 50 Years of Providing indispensable information for the organic chemist for 50 years PATAI’s Chemistry of Functional Groups is a remarkable collection of content covering the key aspects of the chemistry of each functional group, written by the leaders in the field over the last 50 years. All volumes are available online as a fully searchable, fully updating electronic reference work. ePatai contains all volumes published from 1995 onwards, with pre-1995 titles available within the Patai Online Book Series. “For me, the Patai series is the definitive resource and my first choice when I want to learn something about a functional group; it is the genome of functional groups.” Professor Scott E Denmark, Reynold C Fuson Professor of Chemistry, University of Illinois The Beginnings of the Series It all started around 1963, a year after a young student, Zvi Rappoport, finished his PhD work under the supervision of Saul Patai at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Around the same time Arnold Weissberger, a scientist working for Kodak and as an Editor for Interscience/John Wiley & Sons, invited Saul Patai to write or edit a book in the field of Carbon-Carbon Double Bonds. At this time there were no books available on this topic and Saul Patai realised the potential for a Series on “The Chemistry of Functional Groups” and indeed, in 1964 a first volume on The Chemistry of alkenes was published. In the foreword to this first volume in the Series, Saul Patai wrote: “…We hope that a series of advanced treatises on the chemistry of the functional groups will be a useful and valuable addition to the literature of organic chemistry, and the present volume is the first in this planned series.” Find out more on the history of the series, read the Preface to The chemistry of organic derivatives of gold and silver written by Zvi Rappoport in 1999 at www.wiley.com/go/patai50 “I have been using Patai since my undergraduate days. Functional groups are important for the understanding of organic chemistry and the knowledge of functional group interconversions is central to the basic principles of chemical reactivity.” Professor Peter Wipf, University of Pittsburgh Download a virtual issue of sample content today: www.wiley.com/go/patai50 timeline 1963 Discussions regarding the series begin Launch of Saul P atai ‘s The Chemistry of Functional Groups First Synthesis of Biologically Active DNA in a Test Tube First Syntheti Production of Growth Horm 1963 1964 1966 First Artificial Synthesis of Insulin 1967 1968 Fred Sanger Deciphers a 120 Base Long RNA Sequence 1971 Excellence 1964 - 2014 The Philosophy PATAI’s Chemistry of Functional Groups puts functional groups at the centre. The term “functional groups” is used in the widest possible definition and reaches from carbon-carbon double bonds to metal-organic bonds. With the functional group at the centre of presentation it then describes in detail all aspects of theoretical chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical organic chemistry, synthesis, biological chemistry and drug research, industrial chemistry as well as spectroscopic properties related to the group and structural chemistry of compounds carrying the group. All articles treat their subject in depth, usually with hundreds of references and are a unique resource for all chemists. ePatai continues to be the definitive resource for functional groups In 2010, 58,000 pages of content published online in the Patai Online Book Series, and 27,000 pages of content within ePatai, with content from over 520 international contributors. ePatai continues to grow year on year, with new content added article by article until a volume is complete. Over 2,750 new pages have been added online during 2011 and 2012. The introduction of THE SMART ARTICLE in 2013 will enhance ePatai even further, ensuring it remains a key working reference for the lab or the library for future researchers. “A 21st century facelift turns the series into a fully searchable major online reference resource with additional functionality and search facilities. For information professionals including students, chemistry researchers, academics and industry based organic chemists the world over, the Patai series has long been synonymous with reliable expert opinion. But what a difference adding the “e” makes. Now, the long-standing reference work can provide labs and libraries around the globe with instant access to a wealth of invaluable content – straight to their desktop. With its critical and up-to-date information, ePatai is a must for any chemical library. Organic chemists will have accessed the traditional Patai series so this current, online and cross-searchable resource is something they won’t want to be without. ” INFORMATION WORLD REVIEW MARCH 2010 c Human one Nobel Prize Awarded to Herbert Brown and Georg Wittig Nobel Prize Awarded to Bruce Merrified for his Development Nobel Prize Awarded to Donals Cram, Jean-Marie Lehn and Charles Pederson 1972 Artificial Synthesis of Vitamin B12 1979 1983 Polymerase Chain Reaction Developed 1984 of Methodology for Chemical Synthesis on a Solid Matrix 1987 1990 Nobel Prize Awa to Elias James C Introducing THE SMART ARTICLE to ePatai in 2013 Delivering a deeper experience of chemistry How often have you read an article and wanted more than the text? Wanted the article to deliver more of the chemistry? And above all, you wanted to do that quickly and efficiently and find the chemistry all in one place. THE SMART ARTICLE is available on selected organic chemistry journals and will roll out to major Wiley reference works and database products in September, including ePatai. Dive deeper into the article ¾¾ THE SMART ARTICLE gives you not just the text but the ability to look at the chemistry in depth: in abstracts, as an index of compounds or as an interactive part of the article. Search is more powerful ¾¾ With THE SMART ARTICLE, search is now easier and more integrated – THE SMART ARTICLE delivers powerful chemical structure searching across articles in The Smart Article Go and See for yourself View some free access journal issues to experience the features and functions for yourself online at wileyonlinelibrary.com/thesmartarticle Or take a trial!

He had the help of a range of editors including Zvi Rappoport, and the Series expanded from covering classical functional groups such as alkenes, ethers, carboxylic acids and esters to the chemistry of metalcarbon bonds. He truly established the Series as a major resource for all chemistry students and researchers. In the last years before his death he co-edited a lot of volumes together with Zvi Rappoport and prepared Zvi for his future role as Editor-in-Chief. Zvi Rappoport, edited the Series from 1999 to 2013 (co-editing with Saul Patai from 1992 to 1998). In this time the Series changed from a print publication to an online publication. For this purpose he created an Editorial Board and together with Joel Liebman and Ilan Marek they managed to continue editing 2 – 3 full volumes per year. In addition they also had the help of guest editors, including Jacob Zabicky, Ytzhak Apeloig and Alexander Greer. At the end of 2013 Zvi Rappoport retires as Editor-in-Chief, but he will continue to support his successor. Ilan Marek, will take over from Zvi Rappoport in 2014 and will be responsible for the future development of the Series. He will continue to have the support from Zvi Rappoport and Joel Liebman, and he will also continue with the tradition to get the help from guest editors to edit specific themes and topics. Currently he is editing with Zvi Rappoport and Joel Liebman, a volume on The Chemistry of organogold compounds. This volume will be published in 2014 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the publication of The chemistry of alkenes.
