A Handbook of Organic Chemistry Mechanisms

Page: 160

A Handbook to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms is designed to accompany a standard organic chemistry textbook. The book presents complete mechanisms, start to finish, without any steps skipped or left out. The mechanisms have been carefully written to show each step in a logical and easy to follow format. Students have enthusiastically attested to the ease with which they could understand the mechanisms. Reaction mechanisms are one of the most challenging aspects of organic chemistry. This book is derived from Part D of A Guide to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms. That book is a guided inquiry workbook that shows students how to study and enables them to learn reaction mechanisms. Student knowledge is increased step by step by completing mechanisms at easy, moderate, and textbook levels of difficulty. A Handbook to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms also relies on example-based teaching. Chemical reactions can be learned in context, the way infants learn. Learning reactions from rules is difficult when there are many exceptions. Substitution and elimination reactions are noteworthy due to the number of conditions that must be accounted for. With example-based teaching, you can deduce the importance that stereochemistry, structure, solvent, leaving group, charge, basicity, or nucleophilicity may have on a reaction. A Handbook to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms has been designed with the principle that our brains are pattern-matching machines. Therefore, an emphasis has been placed upon the patterns of reactions. Each chapter represents a basic mechanistic theme. That theme is repeated with the examples. Insightful explanations have been included with the mechanisms. This book will be a valuable resourcefor reviewing for an exam, solving problems, or studying for the MCAT.

The first of two workbooks through which students entering first year university courses can gain confidence in organic chemistry, this text will also be of use in A-level courses, and Higher and Sixth Year Study Courses in Chemistry. Designed to challenge the student to test his or her knowledge, each section leads the student through the subject matter by giving a short piece of theory, followed by a question. Space is then provided for the student's answer and the full model answer isgiven - encouraging thought about what is being read at all times. Areas covered include drawing structures, functional groups and formulae and molecular weights. Later sections covering such aspects as isomers, non equivalent carbon and hydrogen atoms, and stereochemistry will be relevant to most parts of University courses in organic chemistry and are necessary pre-requisites before effective progress can be made to Beginning Organic Chemistry 2 - Workbook.

One of the very best things about organic chemistry is actually doing experimental work at the beneh. This applies not only at the profes sionallevel but also from the earliest stages of apprenticeship to the craft as a student. The fascination sterns from the nature of the sub ject itself, with its vast array of different types of reaction and its al most infinite variety of different chemical compounds. Each reaction and each new compound pose their own particular problems to chal lenge the skill and ingenuity of the chemist, whether working in a first-year teaching la bora tory or at the frontiers of research. This book is intended to provide basic guidance in the essential experimental techniques used in a typical undergraduate course. It gives concise coverage of the range of practical skills required, from first-year level when students may have no previous experience, up to final-year level when students are usually involved in more complex and dem an ding experimental work in supervised research projects. Our objective was to produce a handbook of techniques that could be used with a variety of practical courses throughout a student's whole period of study. Those who run practical courses generally have strong feelings about what particular experiments or exercises are appropriate for their own students, and it is rare that a book of experiments suitable for one department is acceptable to another.
