Summary: The chemistry of reactive intermediates is central to a modern mechanistic and quantitative understanding of organic chemistry. Moreover, it underlies a significant portion of modern synthetic chemistry and is integral to a molecular view of biological chemistry.
Reactive Intermediate Chemistry presents an up-to-date, authoritative guide to this fundamental area of organic chemistry. Intended as a free-standing resource for the entire chemical community, i ...show moret should be especially useful for graduate students as a primary or supplemental textbook. This volume features a "three-dimensional" approach in which reactive intermediates are considered by class, the kinetic realms they inhabit, and in historical context, connecting the older, product-based chemistry with contemporary direct observational and computational approaches. Other features include:
