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.

Back cover copy

This book discusses important reactions not usually covered in introductory courses, including pericyclic reactions, formation and reactions of carbenes, migrations to electron-deficient centers, and rearrangements of carbanions and free radicals. It covers symmetry conservation rules and linear free energy relationships. The text is written in an easily understandable, conversational style and at a level suitable for graduate students or undergraduates who have taken a year-long course in organic chemistry. FEATURES: Strong coverage of heterocyclic chemistry a vitally important subject not traditionally covered in introductory courses. Includes many exercises with a wide range of difficulty some of which will challenge, and delight, the most talented students. Clear explanations of the thought processes involved in proposing mechanisms for complex reactions. New chapter on Organophosphorus and Organosulphur Chemistry. New chapter on Photochemistry. "
