Diols: Synthesis and Reactions discusses the applications of the gem-diol chemical group in organic synthesis and atmospheric processes, as well as their effects on odorant receptors and on the catalytic sites of enzymes.

Following this, the reactions of cyclophosphazenes are studied using numerous diols, leading to the formation of regioisomers; open chain, spiro, ansa and bridged-structures and their mixtures. This investigation has many advantages in terms of obtaining products with high yield, ease of isolation and high reactivity potential.

Additionally, the authors review the hydrogenation of cis-2-butene-1,4-diol over supported metal catalysts, with particular emphasis on the different reaction mechanisms. cis-2-Butene-1,4-diol is an interesting multifunctional substrate, chosen as a probe molecule to study the liquid phase hydrogenation of unsaturated diols due its versatility.

The closing chapter presents a global review of the level of molecular complexity that can be synthetized from accessible reagents: amines and diols. Acceptorless dehydrogenative condensations will also be explored in view of their applications in the synthesis of heterocycles.
