Summary

For undergraduate/graduate level courses in organic reactions and mechanisms.

This text discusses important organic reactions and mechanisms not usually covered in depth in Introductory Organic Chemistry courses. By stressing new material, it avoids student's hostility to repeating material previously studied, while still offering the opportunity to review important concepts and principles in novel settings. This is an ideal text for all students who have previously taken a one-year course in Organic Chemistry, as well as serving students who have already had specialized courses in Physical Organic Chemistry, Stereochemistry, Spectroscopy, etc,. and who need additional knowledge about Organic Reactions.

Features

  • NEW - New Chapters on Photochemistry and Organophosphorus and Organosulphur Chemistry.
    • Exposes students to these important reagents that are often ignored by other texts.
  • NEW - A large number of problems from the most recent literatures--Appear in addition to standard review problems.
    • Gives students ample opportunity to challenge themselves and highlights the currency of the material.
  • A "teaching text" format.
    • Integrates frequent examples and exercises, conveys concepts in an easily understandable, conversational style, and highlights potential stumbling blocks and the shortcuts around them.
  • Flexible organization.
    • Gives instructors the freedom to cover certain chapters at any point in the course.
  • Focus on reactions of organic molecules and their mechanisms--Includes a detailed discussion of a resonance and a detailed qualitative, non-mathematical discussion of the principles and applications of molecular orbital theory.
    • Stresses for students the importance of the core subject of Organic Chemistry.
  • Coverage of important reactions and mechanistic principles--Not typically discussed in detail in Introductory Organic Chemistry courses.
    • Keeps students interested in the subject matter and extends what they have already learned.
  • Focus on expected reactions of starting material and intermediates.
    • Teaches students to analyze complex processes, and to propose reasonable mechanisms.
  • Two complete chapters covering heterocyclic chemistry.
    • Gives students ample coverage of this vitally important subject--particularly for students interested in biological chemistry--that is often overlooked.
