Undergraduates in related subjects studying chemistry to second year level or higher will also find this book useful.

Principles and Applications of Stereochemistry

Author: Michael North
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 0748739947
Release Date: 1998-10-23
Genre: Science

A thorough understanding of stereochemistry is essential for the comprehension of almost all aspects of modern organic chemistry. It is also of great significance in many biochemical and medicinal disciplines, since the stereoisomers of a compound can have dramatically different biological properties. This text explains how the different properties of stereoisomers of a compound arise, and what processes can be used to prepare and analyze stereoisomerically pure compounds. It also presents prominent coverage of the stereochemistry of inorganic and organometallic compounds, which is likely to increase in importance, as these compounds are used as symmetric catalysts in asymmetric synthesis. Modern stereochemical terminology is used throughout, although reference is also made to older terms which are still widely used. A set of problems at the end of each chapter aims to further the reader's understanding of how the content can be applied. The book is designed mainly as a textbook for undergraduate students and as a reference source for more advanced levels, but is also intended for academic and professional organic chemists.

Organic Synthesis

Author: Christine L. Willis
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 0198557914
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Science

Organic chemists need to know how to design effective syntheses. This Primer uses a wide range of examples to teach students how to adopt a logical and flexible approach to the design of synthetic routes. It describes how then to design and control syntheses, and compares four syntheses of pyrrolidine alkaloids using the principles elucidated in the main text. Practice examples are provided throughout, making this concise book a useful study resource for the undergraduate.

Comprehensive Organic Chemistry Experiments for the Laboratory Classroom

Author: Carlos A. M. Afonso
Publisher: Royal Society of Chemistry
ISBN: 9781849739634
Release Date: 2016-12-16
Genre:

This expansive and practical textbook contains organic chemistry experiments for teaching in the laboratory at the undergraduate level covering a range of functional group transformations and key organic reactions.The editorial team have collected contributions from around the world and standardized them for publication. Each experiment will explore a modern chemistry scenario, such as: sustainable chemistry; application in the pharmaceutical industry; catalysis and material sciences, to name a few. All the experiments will be complemented with a set of questions to challenge the students and a section for the instructors, concerning the results obtained and advice on getting the best outcome from the experiment. A section covering practical aspects with tips and advice for the instructors, together with the results obtained in the laboratory by students, has been compiled for each experiment. Targeted at professors and lecturers in chemistry, this useful text will provide up to date experiments putting the science into context for the students.

“Much of life can be understood in rational terms if expressed in the language of chemistry. It is an international language, a language without dialects, a language for all time, a language that explains where we came from, what we are, and where the physical world will allow us to go. Chemical Language has great esthetic beauty and links the physical sciences to the b- logical sciences. ” from The Two Cultures: Chemistry and Biology by Arthur Kornberg (Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, 1959) Over the past two centuries, chemistry has evolved from a relatively pure disciplinary pursuit to a position of central importance in the physical and life sciences. More generally, it has p- vided the language and methodology that has unified, integrated and, indeed, molecularized the sciences, shaping our understanding of the molecular world and in so doing the direction, development and destiny of scientific research. The “language of chemistry” referred to by my former Stanford colleague is made up of atoms and bonds and their interactions. It is a s- tem of knowledge that allows us to understand structure and events at a molecular level and increasingly to use that understanding to create new knowledge and beneficial change. The words on this page, for example, are detected by the eye in a series of events, now generally understood at the molecular level.

Pericyclic Reactions

Author: Ian Fleming
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 9780199680900
Release Date: 2015
Genre: Addition reactions

Key texts in the renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers series have been fully refreshed and updated to suit the needs of today's students, lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. The rigorous and yet accessible treatment of each subject area is ideal for those wanting to know more about a particular topic not covered comprehensively in existing undergraduate texts. Moreover, cutting-edge examples and applications throughout the texts show the relevance of thechemistry being described to the real world. Pericyclic reactions constitute a fundamental class of organic chemistry, including such commercially important synthetic reactions as theDiels-Alder reaction. This primer gives a concise and accessible account of these reactions, enabling students to recognise the different types of pericyclic reaction and understand their application in organic synthesis.
