Synopsis:
Organic Chemistry: An Intermediate Text provides a focused yet rigorous presentation of organic chemistry which bridges the gap between introductory undergraduate texts and advanced graduate level texts. Instead of a functional group approach, the material is presented from a structural and mechanistic point of view. The first five chapters discuss basic principles which are fundamental in understanding organic reactions and reactivity of all types. These principles include structure and bonding, oxidation levels, acidity and basicity, curved arrow notation, and stereochemistry and conformation. Subsequent topics are based on these fundamental principles and include functional group manipulation, strategies and methods for forming carbon-carbon bonds, and retrosynthetic analysis. Chapters on methods for determining reaction mechanisms and methods for organic structure determination round out the subject matter and provide additional insight into modern ways to investigate organic transformations. A large number of practice problems are included at the end of each chapter so that students may effectively learn and organize the information presented in the text.
Clearly written and logically organized, this unique textbook provides senior undergraduate chemistry students and beginning graduate students with the advanced organic foundation necessary to move confidently into advanced graduate level courses or directly into the workplace.

Review:
A foundation for success in advanced organic chemistry courses–and careers

Graduate students taking advanced organic chemistry courses often need a refresher on the discipline before they can move on to more specialized topics. This is especially true of students whose last formal exposure to organic chemistry was during their undergraduate studies. Organic Chemistry: An Intermediate Text bridges this gap, reacquainting students with basic organic chemistry while introducing them to the most important advanced topics in the field today.

The book presents a principles-focused discussion of organic chemistry from a unique mechanistic and structural perspective. Beginning with the classification of functional groups by bonding patterns and oxidation levels, it describes general mechanistic considerations vital to the understanding of functional group transformations–from electron movement to stereoelectronic effects. Building on this mechanistic framework, the text then provides insight into synthetic transformations commonly employed in modern organic chemistry.

Updated and revised throughout, the Second Edition of Organic Chemistry: An Intermediate Text features:

  • A stronger emphasis on mechanisms
  • An expanded overview of resonance and aromaticity
  • A new section on uses of organopalladium chemistry and olefin metathesis in carbon-carbon bond formation
  • A revised examination of free radical reactions for carbon-carbon bond formation
  • A fuller discussion of Diels-Alder chemistry

Chapter-ending problems, many of which are new to this edition, help to reinforce pivotal concepts required to fully comprehend the text material. This book is illustrated with abundant structures and figures that demonstrate these concepts.
