9780133732757: Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions and Mechanisms

*Ideal text for all undergraduate and graduate 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. Typically taught as a third semester undergraduate course or a senior/graduate course 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.

From the Back Cover:

This teaching book covers many types of reactions, organic compounds and mechanisms that are often neglected in most introductory Organic Chemistry courses. Rather than reviewing topics discussed in introductory courses or attempting to cover all aspects of organic chemistry, Miller methodically guides readers through more advanced topics to pique and retain interest and make essential principles and practices accessible to all.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Among the rewards I've reaped for having written, Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions and Mechanisms, are the conversations and correspondence I've had with the users (or perhaps just perusers) of this text.

I greatly appreciate the contributions from those of you who have taken the time to inform me of misprints in the first edition. (No errors of fact, I'm happy to say.) The publisher and I have tried to correct those errors in later printings.

I'm also grateful for your suggestions of additional subjects to incorporate into the second edition. (I appreciate your faith that there would be a second edition.) Several of you were rightfully indignant that I had skipped so briefly over photochemistry, aside from pericylic photochemical reactions. The complaint is a valid one, and I have tried to make up for the earlier lapse by including a chapter on photochemistry in this edition.

A smaller number of readers offered a suggestion that I had thought of as well: the great and increasing importance of synthetic reagents incorporating phosphorus and sulfur atoms makes a discussion of the mechanisms by which those reagents act imperative. I have therefore added a chapter on those reactions to the text of this edition.

Of course, a principal purpose of a second edition is to bring the subject matter up-to-date. This edition includes material (and many problems) from the literature through the summer of 2002.

I can't really claim that our understanding of organic reaction mechanisms has been revolutionized in the past half-decade, but there have been some fascinating examples of applications of known processes. There have been notable advances in some areas, such as the dehydro Diels-Alder reaction and the Bergman and Meyers-Saito reactions, and in perhaps my favorite example (because of its elegant simplicity), Bakke's demonstration, contradicting a century of experience that pyridime can be easily nitrated in high yield and under mild conditions—provided you know how.

I am looking forward to hearing from you in regard to this latest version of my text. I can be reached at miller@chem.umass.edu.
