The Organic Reactions Wiki

  Organic Reactions A comprehensive resource which provides information about the most important and useful synthetic reactions, organized primarily by reaction type. It contains mechanism, scope, and limitations of reactions for each reaction type.  Based on this large work, there is freely accessible wiki which provides basic information about a reaction published in this collection. this can be accessed at

IYC 2011 : Marie Skłodowska–Curie

The ultimate goal of science is to understand the natural phenomenons and use them for mankind. There is no need to elaborate importance of chemical sciences in society. IYC 2011 gives an opportunity to remember contributions which ultimately changed the world. "Chemistry is often central, with principles and discoveries that enable work in other subjects," Marie Skłodowska–Curie Both women and men have made significant contributions to chemistry. Marie Curie is probably the best-known woman in science. She was the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, first person to win Nobel Prizes in two different scientific disciplines (Nobel Laureate: 1903 in Physics and 1911  in Chemistry). And also, first famous woman scientist in the modern world.  "Mother of Modern Physics" -- pioneer in research about . She coined the word "radioactivity" . She was first woman awarded a Ph.D. in research science in Europe, first woman professor at the Sorbonne . She di

Book Review : Textbook Of Environmental Studies For Ugc

Text Book on Environmental Studies This book is a part of initiative taken up by UGC and introduces formal study of  the environment  in our academic curriculum. Considering the deteriorating state of the environment, and as per direction of  the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India , the UGC introduced a basic course on Environmental Studies for undergraduate education . The Expert Committee appointed by the UGC looked into all the pertinent questions. This was followed by the framing of the Core Module Syllabus for Environmental Studies for undergraduate courses for all branches of Higher Education. This book is the result of this initiative.

  IUPAC Atropisomers is defined as following A subclass of conformers which can be isolated as separate chemical species and which arise from restricted rotation about a single bond, e.g. ortho -substituted biphenyl, 1,1,2,2-tetra- tert -butylethane. The word atropisomer is derived from the Greek a , meaning not , and tropos , meaning turn . The name was coined by Kuhn in 1933, but atropisomerism was first detected in 6,6’-dinitro-2,2’-diphenic acid by Cristie in 1922.
