Writing Reaction Mechanisms in Organic Chemistry
The book has been extensively revised with new material including a completely new chapter on oxidation and reduction reactions including stereochemical reactions. It is also now illustrated with hundreds of colorful chemical structures to help you understand reaction processes more easily. The book also features new and extended problem sets and answers to help you understand the general principles and how to apply these to real applications. In addition, there are new information boxes throughout the text to provide useful background to reactions and the people behind the discovery of a reaction.
This new edition will be of interest to students and research chemists who want to learn how to organize what may seem an overwhelming quantity of information into a set of simple general principles and guidelines for determining and describing organic reaction mechanisms.

Table of contents
-Betty Luceigh, Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UCLA
"An important contribution to the chemical education field and a great seller for AP."
-Jay Siegel, Professor, Department of Chemistry, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO
"Miller stresses a detailed pedagogically focused approach developing mechanistic pathways from fundamental chemical, physical, and electronic/molecular orbital principles....Many examples and problems are included, along with numerous literature references. Written in a clear and comprehensible style, it will serve as an invaluable supplement to both undergraduate and graduate chemistry students alike; the thorough index renders it useful for professionals as well."
-Francis Vincent Scalzi, Professor, Department of Chemistry, HIRAM COLLEGE, in CHOICE
"I think this book is quite unique and very much needed....The problems are truly outstanding....I like the idea and scope of this book very much....I am excited about using this text."
-Sheila E. Browne, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry,
MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE
"Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students in chemistry, assuming the knowledge obtained in a one-year undergraduate course. Detailed answers are given to all problems."
-BOOK NEWS, INC., reprinted on amazon.com.
"Overall the quality of the presentation is very good. The mechanistic concepts are explained well, the examples chosen are quite representative, and the problems are excellent."
-Donald J. Burton, Professor, Department of Chemistry, UNIVERSITY OF IOWA
