Sets forth the analytical tools needed to solve key problemsin organic chemistry

With its acclaimed decision-based approach, Electron Flow inOrganic Chemistry enables readers to develop the essentialcritical thinking skills needed to analyze and solve problems inorganic chemistry, from the simple to complex. The author breaksdown common mechanistic organic processes into their basic units toexplain the core electron flow pathways that underlie theseprocesses. Moreover, the text stresses the use of analytical toolssuch as flow charts, correlation matrices, and energy surfaces toenable readers new to organic chemistry to grasp the fundamentalsat a much deeper level.

This Second Edition of Electron Flow in OrganicChemistry has been thoroughly revised, reorganized, andstreamlined in response to feedback from both students andinstructors. Readers will find more flowcharts, correlationmatrices, and algorithms that illustrate key decision-makingprocesses step by step. There are new examples from the field ofbiochemistry, making the text more relevant to a broader range ofreaders in chemistry, biology, and medicine. This edition alsooffers three new chapters:

  • Proton transfer and the principles of stability
  • Important reaction archetypes
  • Qualitative molecular orbital theory and pericyclicreactions

The text's appendix features a variety of helpful tools,including a general bibliography, quick-reference charts andtables, pathway summaries, and a major decisions guide.

With its emphasis on logical processes rather than memorizationto solve mechanistic problems, this text gives readers a solidfoundation to approach and solve any problem in organicchemistry.

About the Author:

PAUL H. SCUDDER, PhD, is Chair of the Division of NaturalSciences and Professor of Chemistry at New College of Florida. Dr.Scudder has been teaching organic chemistry and advanced organicchemistry at the undergraduate level for thirty-four years. Hiscurrent research focuses on physical organic chemistry,specifically reaction mechanisms and theory.

Review:

“Overall, this book is much more elaborate compared to itspredecessor; it is more than 50 pages longer, contains twoadditional chapters, and has several new features and extensivelogical connections.  Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates throughprofessionals/practitioners.”  (Choice, 1November 2013)

Book Description John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Using a mechanistic approach, the text explains and makes use of analysis tools rare in undergraduate organic chemistry texts (flow charts as decision maps, correlation matrices to show all possible interactions, and simplified energy surfaces used as problem space maps), helping readers develop a good intuition for organic chemistry and the ability to approach and solve complex problems methods of analysis that are valuable and portable to other fields. This revised Second Edition builds on and improves the legacy of the first edition's unique decision-based approach to teaching/learning organic chemistry. Seller Inventory # AAH9780470638040
