Students at all levels find considerable difficulty in applying their knowledge of organic chemistry to the solution of problems, often relying on memory alone. This book takes a unique approach to show that a general problem-solving strategy is applicable to many of the common reactions. Using a novel 'at-a-glance' layout, the left-hand page provides a stepwise procedure for working through the reaction mechanisms, with helpful hints about the underlying chemistry, and the facing page contains a fully worked-through answer.

How To Solve Organic Reaction Mechanisms: A Stepwise Approach is an upgraded and much–expanded sequel to the bestselling text Reaction Mechanisms at a Glance. This book takes a unique approach to show that a general problem–solving strategy is applicable to many of the common reactions of organic chemistry, demonstrating that logical and stepwise reasoning, in combination with a good understanding of the fundamentals, is a powerful tool to apply to the solution of problems. Sub–divided by functional group, the book uses a check–list approach to problem–solving using mechanistic organic chemistry as its basis. Each mechanistic problem is presented as a two–page spread; the left–hand page introduces the problem and provides a stepwise procedure for working through the reaction mechanisms, with helpful hints about the underlying chemistry. The right–hand page contains the full worked solution and summary. This revised edition includes the following updates: • A new chapter which applies the problem solving strategy to ligand coupling reactions using transition metals • Much–expanded set of fully worked problems • Over 40 further problems (with answers for tutors) for use in tutorials How To Solve Organic Reaction Mechanisms: A Stepwise Approach is an essential workbook for all students studying organic chemistry, and a useful aide for teachers of undergraduate organic chemistry to use in their tutorials.

The term steroid has become virtually synonymous with drug abuse in sport to the majority of the public. However these steroids - androgens - actually comprise only a single relatively small class of biologically active steroids, and are overshadowed by a large collection of compounds, a sizeable number of which are commercial drugs that share the same structural carbon skeleton. The development of these drugs has led to a large body of organic chemistry often denoted as "Steroid Chemistry". Steroid Chemistry At A Glance provides a concise overview of the main principles and reactions of steroid chemistry. Topics covered include: history, isolation and structure determination of steroids steroid nomenclature and stereochemistry natural sources of steroids synthesis and reactions of aromatic a-ring steroids, androstanes, and pregnanes steroids with a spirolactone at position 17 steroids with hetrocyclic ring A compounds derived from cholesterol Based on the highly successful and student friendly "at a glance" approach, the information is presented in integrated, self contained double page spreads of text and illustrative material. Students of chemistry and pharmacy using Steroid Chemistry at a Glance will find they have a resource with which they can quickly, concisely and confidently acquire, regularly review and revise the basic facts that underpin the properties, synthesis and reactions of this important class of natural products. It will also serve as a handy bench reference for postgraduates and professional chemists.

Bioenergetics is the study of the way biological systems, usuallyat the molecular level, utilize and convert energy in order todrive the biochemical reactions that constitute life. However,because of its often quantitative basis and the amount of technicaljargon, the subject tends to alienate and intimidate students. Thisbeautifully illustrated text has a lucid and logical approach tothe subject. The text uses the modern perspective throughout sothat the student is given an easily assimilable, logicalintroduction to the important concepts of the subject, particularythe core concept, the 'chemiosmotic theory'. It has beenspecifically designed to make information easily accessible bydevoting each double-page spread to one topic. Within the spread, avariety of carefully constructed diagrams present information in aconcise and innovative manner. The text is further enhanced by acomprehensive guide to additional reading. Original, easily understood combination of visual and writteninformation. 43 double-page speads give a clear and concise introduction tothis traditionally difficult subject. The most up to date text available, covering all modernmolecular genetic techniques. Competitively priced.

Mechanisms of Associated Chemical Acetaldehyde Cyanohydrin and Acetone Cyanohydrin Elimination Addition Reactions

The book written by Senior Lecturer PhD Eng. Valeriu Jumanca is an organic chemistry technology book, which deals with the recovery of acetaldehyde and acetone cyanohydrins resulted after acrylonitrile production from acetylene and hydrogen cyanide. Therefore, at first glance, the appeal of the book may seem limited to a particular category of chemical technologists, namely to those working in a relatively narrow field, that of acetylene by-products recovery reactions. Nevertheless, the book addressability is considerably wider and therefore I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is interested in both technological and theoretical organic chemistry. a. The author is convinced that, in order to be successful, any technological study must be preceded by a theoretical and research study, so that the technological process may be perfectly mastered from all standpoints. Considering my 50 years’ experience in the research and education fields, I think that we may still hope that our industry, once well-known all over the world, will regain its value thanks to people like our author, who still think the way he does. b. The wastewater resulting from acrylonitrile production from acetylene and hydrogen cyanide contains cyanohydrins, generated by the subsequent reactions of the formed acrylonitrile. When tackling cyanohydrins recovery reactions from a theoretical viewpoint, the author considers the reactions that occur as β eliminations (1,2 eliminations) from a O ― C bond, followed by the formation of a double ketonic bond. I find this approach extremely interesting, since most of the Reaction Mechanisms books consider the reversible addition of hydrogen cyanide to the carbonyl group and not the β elimination reaction. I consider this approach as extremely useful for the topic of this work. c. Although the object of this work is a technological one, the manner in which the author tackles it is a scientific approach of an issue in which he has had a rich both theoretical and practical experience and which he wishes to share with his readers. I openheartedly recommend Mr. Jumanca’s book to all those interested in issues of organic chemistry, in the organic reactions mechanism and in the organic research and practical technology.

A range of alternative mechanisms can usually be postulated for most organic chemical reactions, and identification of the most likely requires detailed investigation. Investigation of Organic Reactions and their Mechanisms will serve as a guide for the trained chemist who needs to characterise an organic chemical reaction and investigate its mechanism, but who is not an expert in physical organic chemistry. Such an investigation will lead to an understanding of which bonds are broken, which are made, and the order in which these processes happen. This information and knowledge of the associated kinetic and thermodynamic parameters are central to the development of safe, efficient, and profitable industrial chemical processes, and to extending the synthetic utility of new chemical reactions in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, and academic environments. Written as a coherent account of the principal methods currently used in mechanistic investigations, at a level accessible to academic researchers and graduate chemists in industry, the book is highly practical in approach. The contributing authors, an international group of expert practitioners of the techniques covered, illustrate their contributions by examples from their own research and from the relevant wider chemical literature. The book covers basic aspects such as product analysis, kinetics, catalysis, and investigation of reactive intermediates. It also includes material on significant recent developments, e.g. computational chemistry, calorimetry, and electrochemistry, in addition to topics of high current industrial relevance, e.g. reactions in multiphase systems, and synthetically useful reactions involving free radicals and catalysis by organometallic compounds.
