This book shows how the mechanistic principles of organic compound reaction can be applied both to acquiring a knowledge of organic synthetic processes and to planning the construction of organic compounds. It is designed for those who have had no more than a brief introduction to organic chemistry, and aims to convey a broad understanding rather than to produce a reference text. The text is divided into two parts. In the first section, reaction mechanism is set in its wider context of the basic principles and concepts that underlie chemical reactions. In the second section, these principles and concepts are applied to the formation of particular types of bonds, groupings and compounds, and the planning and detailed execution of the multi-step syntheses of several complex naturally occurring compounds are described. The text is extensively cross-referenced and there is a detailed index.

It is an absolute `must' for the reading list of all teachers of organic chemistry and I am sure it will become included in the reading lists of their students. - Nature; A very good book which is likely to become extremely popular. Organic chemists at all levels of training and experience will find it to be a worthwhile acquisition. - Chemistry & Industry; This is a very good book and the treatment of organic chemistry is much wider than the title indicates. - Endeavour; I recommend it as a general text for students...the authors have produced a clear, modern text which covers an enormous amount of chemistry... - Education in Chemistry; Since its first publication in 1968, this book has become virtually th de facto textbook for organic synthesis in UK universities...This third edition brings the content up to date with recent developments in organic synthesis, and will ensure a continued use as a standard undergraduate text. - Chemistry in Britain; This third edition brings the content up to date with recent developments in organic synthesis, and will ensure its continued use as a standard undergraduate text. |oChemistry in Britain |dJune 1994
