Following the huge success of the first edition, which has become THE reference source for everyone working in the field, this long-awaited, completely updated edition features almost 50% new content. The world-renowned chemist Prof Dennis Hall is joined by a select group of top authors to cover all modern aspects of boronic acid derivatives in one comprehensive handbook. The experimental procedures described make for extremely useful reading. From the reviews of the first edition: "...deserves to be on the bookshelf of all synthetic chemists, whether in discovery or process chemistry."

"Overall, Hall's book provides an excellent starting point from which to explore the chemistry of boronic acids, but also one which gives a perspective on likely future developments. A clear positive feedback loop emerges from the material herein, whereby the take-up of new reactions and applications leads to demands for improved methods for the preparation of boronate substrates which in turn offers wider scope for further new reactivity patterns to be exploited. Hall states at the outset that his task was to provide the first comprehensive book on the chemistry and biology of boronic acids; this he has done, but at the pace of current developments, a second edition might not be so long in arriving." Angewandte Chemie IE "For some reason, this excellent book didn't get reviewed as soon as it was published but we would like to remedy this now...In conclusion, this excellent book deserves to be on the bookshelf of all synthetic chemists, whether in discovery or process chemistry."
