Overview

Written by one of the world s leading researchers and teachers in organic chemistry, this book focuses on the living core of chemistry, organic synthesis. A rational treatment allows an economical presentation of both the theory and the actual procedures for synthetic pathways. Organic Reactions: Simplicity and Logic the student s and lecturer s ideal companion, provides:

• a superb overview of organic reactions

• a rigorous introduction to the underlying theoretical concepts

• insight into the logic and simplicity underpinning organic synthesis

• biographies of, and mini-essays devoted to, great scientists who have shaped chemistry and biochemistry

• examples of industrial organic chemistry

• an easy-to-read, well-written, highly illustrated text

• an essential learning tool for chemistry, biochemistry and polymer science courses
Organic Reactions: Simplicity and Logic presents a lucid introduction to organic synthesis which will appeal to students and lecturers in organic, medicinal, pharmaceutical and industrial chemistry as well as biochemistry, polymer and materials science.
