About the Author

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (Ph.D. 1963). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry. With his students, Professor Carey has published over forty research papers in synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry.

Professor Sundberg is primarily engaged in teaching and chemical education. Along with Francis A. Carey he is the author of “Advanced Organic Chemistry.Professor Sundberg is also interested in synthetic methodology in heterocyclic chemistry and is the author of “Indoles” in the Best Synthetic Methods Series (Academic Press, 1996).

Scathing review of Carey/Sundberg The best uses I have found for Carey/Sundberg Advanced Organic Chemistry A and B are: 1) rug flattener, 2) futon holder-upper. The writing style is opaque, poorly-defined and dull; it reads as though the authors wrote the book to sooth their own egos rather than provide a useful or informative guide to advanced organic chemistry. It is emblematic of everything wrong with the culture in the field. Here are some fantastic books on the exact same material written clearly with interesting examples: Physical organic: Anslyn/Dougherty, Modern Physical Organic Chemistry Synthetic: Clayden/Greeves/Warren, Organic Chemistry (later chapters are advanced/synthetic - it's all bundled in the UK) Mechanisms: Grossman, The Art of Writing Reasonable Organic Reaction Mechanisms List of named reactions: just don't. It's the 21st century so we have databases and search engines.

Its well researched and very useful if your taking a graduate level organic class.
