مروری بر کتاب
Intended for students of intermediate organic chemistry, this text shows how to write a reasonable mechanism for an organic chemical transformation. The discussion is organized by types of mechanisms and the conditions under which the reaction is executed, rather than by the overall reaction as is the case in most textbooks. Each chapter discusses common mechanistic pathways and suggests practical tips for drawing them. Worked problems are included in the discussion of each mechanism, and "common error alerts" are scattered throughout the text to warn readers about pitfalls and misconceptions that bedevil students. Each chapter is capped by a large problem set.
"Writing Organic Reaction Mechanisms" introduces students to the basic principles which enable them to understand any organic reaction mechanism. Readers review the major types of organic mechanisms and are given practice exercises to ensure they understand them.; This book is divided into three parts.
Part 1 introduces the basic principles of organic mechanisms. Part 2 deals with each of the major types of organic mechanisms including substitution reactions, addition reactions, elimination reactions, sequential addition/elimination reactions, rearrangement and fragmentation reactions and redox reactions. Every new mechanism is introduced in logical progression using examples.; The stereochemical consequences of a particular mechanistic route are explained as is the relevance to synthetic routes.
All the principle reaction mechanisms and core reactions required for a first-year university chemistry course are included. Easy-to-use appendices provide comprehensive reference material on organic notations, stereochemical terminology and oxidation numbers as well as a skeletal index which allows a name to be given to a compound for which the structure is known.
