Summary: Designed to help students not only understand what has been done in the past, but also be able to develop new concepts and to see new relationships in the future, Carroll's text emphasizes the nature and limitations of knowledge in chemistry, the need to question the underlying bases of familiar concepts, and to explore the role of complementary models in the understanding and practice of organic chemistry. This book is modern both in content and in presentation. Rat moreher than taking the encyclopedic approach of other books on organic structure and mechanism, Carroll emphasizes underlying concepts in a way that leads to a deeper understanding of the fundamental principles. Reviewers have commented on the text's scholarship and clear presentation.

  • Carroll includes a clear, detailed presentation of organic stereochemistry in Chapter 2, coverage of the fundamental concepts of molecular mechanics in Chapter 3, and coverage of the principles of molecular orbital theory in Chapter 4.
  • A chapter on reactive intermediates precedes a chapter on methods for studying the mechanisms of organic reactions.
  • Individual chapters cover acid-base catalyzed reactions, substitution reactions, addition reactions, elimination reactions, and organic photochemistry.
  • Hundreds of literature-based problems allow students to test their understanding, to actively engage the chemical literature, and to develop and defend their own ideas.
  • A wide range of informative and up-to-date footnotes place the text in a more historical perspective and provide easy access to further information. The text's 3000 plus literature citations range from 1851 to 1995. less
