Synthetic Reaction Updates
Stanford University Libraries » Online resource » (no call number)
"To respond to the growing interdisciplinary nature of research in the chemical sciences, RSC discontinued Catalysts & Catalysed Reactions and Methods in Organic Synthesis and merged them into a new product – Synthetic Reaction Updates.  Launched in 2015, Synthetic Reaction Updates is a literature updating service keeping you up to date with recent developments in synthetic organic chemistry. Its scope is all synthetic chemistry, with a focus on organic chemistry and interesting transformations of functional groups.  Covering a wide range of primary sources, Synthetic Reaction Updates includes the most important reactions published in the recent scientific literature, presented as easy to read reaction schemes that are searchable by topic and reaction type.  Sign up for weekly or monthly alerts."
