Providing a practical learning experience with numerous opportunities for self-testing, the book contains:
Checklists of what students need to know before they begin to study a topic Checklists of concepts to be fully understood before moving to the next subject area Homework problems directly tied to each concept at the end of each chapter Embedded problems with answers throughout the material Experimental details and mechanisms for key reactions
The reactions and mechanisms contained in the book describe the most fundamental concepts that are used in industry, biological chemistry and biochemistry, molecular biology, and pharmacy. The concepts presented constitute the fundamental basis of life processes, making them critical to the study of medicine. Reflecting this emphasis, most chapters end with a brief section that describes biological applications for each concept. This text provides students with the skills to proceed to the next level of study, offering a fundamental understanding of acids and bases applied to organic transformations and organic molecules.
Readers are guided on planning and execution of multi-step synthetic reactions, with detailed descriptions of all the reactions. The first five chapters deal with the structure of organic compounds and discuss important organic chemistry bonds, fundamental principles of conformation, and stereochemistry of organic molecules, and reactive intermediates in organic chemistry. Chapters 6 to 9 are concerned with general principles of mechanism in organic chemistry, including acids and bases, photochemistry, sonochemistry and microwave irradiation, and finally the relationship between structure and reactivity. The last 10 chapters cover the nature and the scope of organic reactions and their mechanisms.
The 7th edition proves again it is a must-have desktop reference and textbook for every student and professional working in organic chemistry or related fields.
Key features of the 7th edition:Every chapter has been updated with the most recent reaction information with references to both the primary and review literature New to the 7th edition: 5,500 references since the last edition, updates / rewrites of the retained sections, and an updated index in Appendix B Contains more than 1650 reactions and 20,000 valuable references to the primary literature Includes appendices on the literature of organic chemistry and the classification of reactions according to the compounds synthesized Guides the reader on planning and execution of multi-step synthetic reactions, with detailed descriptions of all the reactions.
Reviews of the previous edition:
"...a favorite general organic chemistry text and an easy-to-use one-volume reference. We are confident that this book will remain a dominant reference and that it will reside on many chemists' personal bookshelves." –Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
"Who can hope to be seriously accepted as a member of the organic chemistry community without being in possession of at least one edition of 'March'?" –Chemistry and Industry
Perfect for both graduate and post-graduate students, Hybrid Retrosynthesis provides new applied skills and tools to help during their organic synthesis courses and future careers, whilst simultaneously acting as useful resource for those setting tutorial and group problems, and as a helpful go-to guide for organic chemists involved in either industry or academia.Ideal revision and hands on learning guide for organic synthesis
Clearly explains the principles and practice of retrosynthesis, which is often not covered in other books
Encourages readers to practice their synthetic knowledge supported by real life examples
The Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods series facilitates the search for quality, selected functional group transformations, organized by reacting functional group of starting material and functional group formed, with full references to each reaction
Presents examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds from the literature of 2005-8
Provides a handy reference and a valuable tool to the working organic chemist, allowing a quick check of known organic transformations
Stringent criteria for inclusion of reactions, including real synthetic utility of reactions, reagents readily available or easily prepared and handled in the laboratory
A clear organizational scheme-chemical transformations classified first by reacting functional group of starting material, then by functional group formed-allows for quick reference and information retrieval. Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 12 provides an unparalleled source of information on the methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry for the working chemist and student alike.
This valuable desktop resource contains over 1,200 examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds in a handy reference, as well as over 800 examples of difunctional compounds, and features over 30 more reviews than Volume 8. As in all the previous Compendium volumes, the classification schemes used allow for quick and easy reference and information retrieval. Chemical transformations are classified by the reacting functional group of the starting material and then by the functional group formed. Helpful indices are provided for both monofunctional and difunctional compounds as an efficient means of guidance to specific classes of transformations.
Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 9, is an unparalleled source of information on the methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry for the working chemist and student.
Volume 9 in the series originated by I. T. Harrison and S. Harrison
This new edition was rewritten largely with the feedback of students in mind and is also based on the author’s classroom experiences using the first edition.
Highlights of the Second Edition Include:Reorganized chapters that improve the presentation of material Coverage of new topics, such as green chemistry Adding photographs to the lectures to illustrate and emphasize important concepts A downloadable solutions manual
The second edition of Organic Chemistry: An Acid–Base Approach constitutes a significant improvement upon a unique introductory technique to organic chemistry. The reactions and mechanisms it covers are the most fundamental concepts in organic chemistry that are applied to industry, biological chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and pharmacy. Using an illustrated conceptual approach rather than presenting sets of principles and theories to memorize, it gives students a more concrete understanding of the material.
Featuring 1,200 more entries than its predecessor, Volume 8 covers functional group transformations and carbon-carbon bond forming reactions appearing in the literature from 1990 through 1992. It presents approximately 1,400 examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds and approximately 1,640 examples of reactions that prepare difunctional compounds with various functional groups. It also features 60 more reviews than Volume 7.
As in all the previous Compendium volumes, the classification schemes used allow for quick and easy reference and information retrieval. Chemical transformations are classified first by the reacting functional group of the starting material and then by the functional group formed. The transformation, major reagents that effect the transformation, yield percentage, and stereochemistry are all clearly shown. The Compendium also includes indices for both monofunctional and difunctional compounds as an efficient means of guiding you to specific classes of transformations.
Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 8 provides professional chemists and students unparalleled access to the wealth of methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry.
Introducing English Semantics:Discusses the nature of human language and how linguists categorise and examine it. Covers meanings expressed in English words, prefixes, suffixes and sentences. Examines such relations as synonymy, antonymy, hyponymy, ambiguity, implication, factivity, aspect, and modality Draws comparisons between English and other languages Illustrates the importance of 'tone of voice' and 'body language' in face-to-face exchanges and the role of context in any communication Contains a wealth of exercises and a glossary to clearly define all terminology
This new edition includes expanded and updated textual exercises and a greater focus on compounds and other kinds of composite lexemes. Written in a clear and accessible style, Introducing English Semantics is an essential text for any student taking an introductory course in semantics.
