Quick overview The book begins with the modern concepts of organic chemical reactivity, then presents a concise up to date account of the mechanisms of major reactions of simple organic compounds. Each chapter leads the student from the experimental evidence to the mechanistic deductions, and ends with problems for students to work through, and a short bibliography.
Product description

Mechanisms of Organic Reactions is aimed at first and second year chemistry undergraduates. This authorative and up-to-date overview begins with a chapter in which modern terminology, definitions, and concepts of mechanisms and reactivity are introduced. The following four chapters are accounts of the mechanisms of four of the main classes of reactions of aliphatic compounds. However, rather than simply being presented with the mechanism, the reader is first given the experimental evidence, and then shown how this leads to the mechanistic deductions. With problems at the end of each chapter and a short bibliography this book will be invaluable to first and second year chemistry undergraduates.
