Excerpt from American Medical Times, Vol. 3: Being a Weekly Series of the New York Journal of Medicine; July-December, 1861 March 9, - to-day I visited the wards of the famous Civi ale at the Neckar. He shows his age, but is yet very active. It was certainly very instructive to see the great tenderness and dexterity with which he passed bougies through close strictures. N several cases of tight stricture he used an instrument for internal incision, so fashioned as to cut from behind forward after having been passed beyond the strait place. He remarked that the process was devoid of danger, and much shortened the duration of treatment. After inci sion a gum-elastic catheter is introduced, and retained twen ty-four hours, and after that a metallic bougie is passed every morning. He remarked upon the great frequency of hypospadias to a slight degree. I also went into a part of the Neckar devoted to children, and to my mind they afford one of the most interesting fields of observation in Paris. Scrofulous disease of the joints seemed very frequent among them. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

In "Science of Synthesis: Cross Coupling and Heck-Type Reactions", expert authors present and discuss the best and most reliable methods currently available for the formation of new carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds using these reactions, highlighted with experimental procedures. The three volumes provide an extensive overview of the current state of the art in this field of central importance in modern chemistry, and are an invaluable resource for synthetic organic chemists. This volume covers the different classes of Heck-type reactions. It describes the developments in each area whilst critically evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the different methods. Many of these newly developed Heck-type methods feature operationally convenient conditions, high catalytic efficiency, and high levels of chemical, regiochemical, and stereochemical control. // The content of this e-book was originally published in Dec. 2012.
