Written by one of the world?s leading researchers and teachers in organic chemistry, this book focuses on the living core of chemistry, organic synthesis. A rational treatment allows an economical presentation of both the theory and the actual procedures for synthetic pathways. Organic Reactions: Simplicity and Logic ? the student?s and lecturer?s ideal companion, provides:
  • a superb overview of organic reactions
  • a rigorous introduction to the underlying theoretical concepts
  • insight into the logic and simplicity underpinning organic synthesis
  • biographies of, and mini–essays devoted to, great scientists who have shaped chemistry and biochemistry
  • examples of industrial organic chemistry
  • an easy–to–read, well–written, highly illustrated text
  • an essential learning tool for chemistry, biochemistry and polymer science courses
Organic Reactions: Simplicity and Logic presents a lucid introduction to organic synthesis which will appeal to students and lecturers in organic, medicinal, pharmaceutical and industrial chemistry as well as biochemistry, polymer and materials science.
