Organic Chemistry: Reagents, Functional Groups, Name Reactions

e-EROS and Other Reagent Collections

e-EROS gives detailed information about 4,500 reagents and catalysts, with 200 new or updated articles added each year. Articles contain preparation details, physical property information, and commentary on the role the reagent plays in organic synthetic reactions.

We also have the Handbook of Reagents for Organic Synthesis, which are thematic collections of e-EROS articles

Name Reactions

Along with the texts below, here are some other resources for finding information on named reactions. You can also search name reactions in Reaxys using the Query Builder (go to the Reactions section, then drag Reaction Type into the search box). Then enter the reaction name in the index and select all of the variations.
