9780124967120: Writing Reaction Mechanisms in Organic Chemistry, Second Edition (Advanced Organic Chemistry)

Writing Reaction Mechanisms in Organic Chemistry, Second Edition, is an invaluable guide to charting the movements of atoms and electrons in the reactions of organic molecules. Miller and Solomon illustrate that understanding organic reactions is based on applying general principles rather than the rote memorization of unrelated processes, and, in turn, emphasize that writing mechanisms is a practical method of applying knowledge of previously encountered reactions and reaction conditions to new reactions. Students and research chemists alike will find this book useful in providing a method of organizing and synthesizing an oftentimes overwhelming quantity of information into a set of general principles and guidelines for determining and describing organic reaction mechanisms.

NEW TO THIS EDITION
( Illustrated with hundreds of chemical structures, all redrawn from the first edition, with added
emphasis on three-dimensional structures and stereochemical aspects of reaction mechanisms
( Extensively rewritten and reorganized to make the presentation and format more accessible to first-year organic chemistry students, as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students
( Chapter 6 is completely revised to streamline the treatment of pericyclic reactions, while introducing the principles underlying the symmetry operations and orbital correlation diagrams
( New appendixes in this edition contain easily referenced information on Lewis structures, chemical symbols and notation, and relative acidities of common functional groups

From the Back Cover:

Praise for the First Edition:
"Written in a clear and comprehensible style, Writing Reaction Mechanisms in Orgainic Chemistry will serve as an invaluable supplement to both undergraduate and graduate chemistry students alike; the thorough index renders it useful for professionals as well."
--Choice
Practicing chemists increasingly use mechanisms to explain their results and to design new experiments and processes. Writing Reaction Mechanisms is a guide to charting the movements of electrons and atoms during the reactions of organic molecules. The book helps train the reader to write organic reaction mechanisms-that is, to construct a detailed, step-by-step account of the changes that occur as reactants become transformed into products. It offers the student another framework for organizing the material covered in organic chemistry, which is frequently seen by students as an overwhelming quantity of information. This book helps students understand functional group transformations and synthetic methods by organizing them into a set of general principles and guidelines for determining writing mechanisms.
Key Features:
* Essential for those students who need to have mechanisms explained in greater detail than most organic chemistry textbooks provide.
* Illustrated with hundreds of chemical structures
* Extensively rewritten and reorganized to make the presentation and format even easier for students to use
* Contains many problem sets and answers to all problems to help students work through general principles and applications
* Appendixes have been added to this edition that contain easily referenced information on Lewis structures, symbols for chemical notation, and the relative acidities of common substances

About the Author:

Audrey Evelyn Miller received her Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1962. She was the National Science Foundation Science Faculty Fellow from 1971-1972. Dr. Miller has served on panels from multiple organizations and societies. She has also given many seminar presentations at various colleges around the U.S. Dr. Miller recently taught chemistry at the University of Connecticut, and is also published under the last names Monahan and Small.

Philippa H. Solomon received her Ph.D. from Boston University in 1972. She did her post doctoral work at the University of Pittsburgh from 1971-1972, and at Columbia University from 1972-1975.
