Jie Jack Li is a chemist at Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. He received his BS from Nanjing University and his PhD in organic chemistry at Indiana University. Dr. Li completed a postdoctoral fellowship at MIT. He is coauthor of various books, including Name Reactions in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Contemporary Drug Synthesis, Name Reactions for Functional Group Transformations, Name Reactions for Homologations, Parts I and II, Name Reactions on Ring Formations, and The Art of Drug Synthesis, all published by Wiley.
"Jack Li and his illustrious team of chemists have done it again. It is hard to imagine how one could organize and categorize a topic so broad as "homologation" reactions. These are some of the bread and butter transforms of organic chemistry ? reactions that are fundamentally important to the practice of chemical synthesis. This two book series is masterfully organized and easy to use both as a reference work for the classroom and a springboard for practitioners to rapidly apply these reactions in the laboratory. The extensive coverage of these critical reactions, including a historical perspective, mechanism, synthetic utility, and actual experimental details will ensure that these books will be on the shelf of every serious organic chemist for years to come." --Phil S.
