Organic Reaction Mechanismsby V.K. Ahluwalia, Rakesh Kumar Parashar
This book, written for graduate and post-graduate chemistry students, provides an extensive coverage of various organic reactions, rearrangements and reagents, with emphasis on their applications in organic synthesis. In the chapters on oxidation and reduction a summary of oxidation and reduction of organic compounds with the different reagents is given in a tabular form for the convenience of students. The most commonly encountered reaction intermediates are discussed in detail. The applications of organic reagents are illustrated with examples while the chapters on pericyclic reactions and photochemical reactions were included in the second and third editions, respectively. In this fourth edition a new chapter on solved problems in Organic Reaction Mechanisms has been added, to enable students evaluate their understanding of the topic. In this chapter several reagents, reactions and rearrangements, which were not earlier included in this book, have now been included in the form of problems. NEW TO THE FOURTH EDITION:
• Large number of new Reagents, Reactions and Rearrangements These are: Baylis-Hillman Reaction, Bucherer Reaction, Corey-Posner and Whitesides-House Synthesis, Corey-Suggs Oxidation, Dess-Martin Reagent, Dienone-Phenol Rearrangement, Friedlander Synthesis, Haller-Bauer Reaction, Heck Reaction, Hofmann-Loeffler-Freytag Reaction, Pauson-Khand Reaction, Mozingo Reaction, Nickel boride, Prins Reaction, Stille Coupling, Suzuki Reaction, Tiffeneau-Demjanov Reaction, Trost-Tsuji Coupling.
• Solved Problems on Reaction Mechanism This book is also very useful for students taking competitive examinations.
