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.
The treatment emphasizes unifying principles, showing how common mechanisms link seemingly disparate reactions.
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.
The author has drawn on his own research and the current literature to ensure that appropriate attention is given to topics across the range of modern organic chemistry.
