About this title


Presentation is clear and instructive: students will learn to recognize that many of the reactions in organic chemistry are closely related and not independent facts needing unrelated memorization. The book emphasizes that derivation of a mechanism is not a theoretical procedure, but a means of applying knowledge of other similar reactions and reaction conditions to the new reaction.

n Brief summaries of required basic knowledge of organic structure, bonding, stereochemistry, resonance, tautomerism, and molecular orbital theory
n Definitions of essential terms
n Typing and classification of reactions
n Hints (rules) for deriving the most likely mechanism for any reaction

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."
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
