Advanced Organic Chemistry: Part B: Reactions and Synthesis / Edition 5 available in Paperback
The two-part, fifth edition of Advanced Organic Chemistry has been substantially revised and reorganized for greater clarity. The material has been updated to reflect advances in the field since the previous edition, especially in computational chemistry. Part B describes the most general and useful synthetic reactions, organized on the basis of reaction type. It can stand-alone; together, with Part A: Structure and Mechanisms, the two volumes provide a comprehensive foundation for the study in organic chemistry. Companion websites provide digital models for students and exercise solutions for instructors.
About the Author
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.
