For a variety of reasons I’m taking stock of the various books I’ve purchased, appropriated from the group stores, or borrowed from the University’s library. Most serve as long-term references, though the occasional book is for searching for research project inspiration.
Arpe – Industrial Organic Chemistry
Barton and Ollis – Comprehensive Organic Chemistry Vol 2: Nitrogen Compounds (1979)
Collins and Ferrier – Monosaccharides: Their Chemistry and Their Roles in Natural Products
Dermer and Ham – Ethylenimine and other aziridines
Dodd – The ACS Style Guide
Feibelman – A PhD Is Not Enough! (Loaned out)
Fieser – Reagents for Organic Synthesis (vol 1)
Greene and Wuts – Protective Groups in Organic Chemistry
Hammesfahr and Stong – Creative grass blowing
Hudlicky – Oxidations in Organic Chemistry
Hudlicky and Reed – The Way of Synthesis
Levy and Fugedi – The Organic Chemistry of Sugars
Lodish – Molecular Cell Biology
March – Advanced Organic Chemistry
Narain – Chemistry of Bioconjugates
Newman – Steric Effects in Organic Chemistry
Paquette – Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis (Vol 1) 
Slonczewski and Foster – Microbiology: An Evolving Science
Stoddart – Stereochemistry of Carbohydrates
Weinstein and Wagman – Antibiotics: Isolation, separation and purification
My work is a blend of chemistry and biology techniques, so it’s interesting to see that the reference books lean heavily towards chemistry. This may be in part due to how standardized the molecular biology techniques are, and wealth of online protocols.
 This is online now. I just like flipping through the hard copy.
