<b><i>Solid-Phase Organic Synthesis</i></b> Edited by Kevin Burgess, Texas A & M University Efficient, high-throughput chemistry is now the focus of many research laboratories. Solid-phase organic syntheses are central to many of these combinatorial and parallel screening methodologies. Consequently, they have been a major scientific theme of the 1990s and promise to remain prominent for the first part of the new millennium. Indeed, a bewildering number of papers have entered the literature on this topic; some report minor modifications enabling transformation of solution-phase methods to a solid support, while others report major innovations. Solid-Phase Organic Synthesis collects, highlights, and critiques some of the key developments in the field. <p> Leading practitioners explain different perspectives on diverse aspects of the area. Specific topics covered include: <ul> <li>Syntheses of guanidines <li>Palladium-catalyzed C-C bond forming reactions <li>S_nAr reactions for the formation of heterocycles <li>Sequence-specific arylalkyne oligomers <li>Resin-supported capture agents and other reagents <li>Synthesis on pins <li>Monitoring of supported reactions using IR <li>Solid-phase syntheses of natural product derivatives </ul> <p> <b>Of related interest:</b> <i>Combinatorial Chemistry and Molecular Diversity in Drug Discovery</i>, Eric M.
