phenomena and molecules associated with endogenous hormonal
mechanisms and brain neurotransmission - the basis of many emotions
associated with love, passion, and sex.
The 12th edition of Organic Chemistry continues Solomons, Fryhle & Snyder's tradition of excellence in teaching and preparing students for success in the organic classroom and beyond. A central theme of the authors' approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the content is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. The authors' philosophy is to emphasize mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, and at the same time, use the unifying features of functional groups as the basis for most chapters. The structural aspects of the authors' approach show students what organic chemistry is. Mechanistic aspects of their approach show students how it works. And wherever an opportunity arises, the authors' show students what it does in living systems and the physical world around us.

Provides, in one handbook, comprehensive coverage of one of the hottest topics in stereoselective chemistry Written by leading international authors in the field, this book introduces readers to C-H activation in asymmetric synthesis along with all of its facets. It presents stereoselective C-H functionalization with a broad coverage, from outer-sphere to inner-sphere C-H bond activation, and from the control of olefin geometry to the induction of point, planar and axial chirality. Moreover, methods wherein asymmetry is introduced either during the C-H activation or in a different elementary step are discussed. Presented in two parts?asymmetric activation of C(sp3)-H bonds and stereoselective synthesis implying activation of C(sp2)-H bonds?CH-Activation for Asymmetric Synthesis showcases the diversity of stereogenic elements, which can now be constructed by C-H activation methods. Chapters in Part 1 cover: C(sp3)-H bond insertion by metal carbenoids and nitrenoids; stereoselective C-C bond and C-N bond forming reactions through C(sp3)?H bond insertion of metal nitrenoids; enantioselective intra- and intermolecular couplings; and more. Part 2 looks at: C-H activation involved in stereodiscriminant step; planar chirality; diastereoselective formation of alkenes through C(sp2)?H bond activation; amongst other methods. -Covers one of the most rapidly developing fields in organic synthesis and catalysis -Clearly structured in two parts (activation of sp3- and activation of sp2-H bonds) -Edited by two leading experts in C-H activation in asymmetric synthesis CH-Activation for Asymmetric Synthesis will be of high interest to chemists in academia, as well as those in the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industry.
Master's and doctoral students often have unnecessary difficulty with the technical requirements of constructing a research proposal, writing a thesis and submitting it for examination. Students can expect expert supervision in conducting their research and drawing conclusions, but the responsibility for presenting their work in the correct way and in accordance with accepted conventions is theirs alone. This guide has been developed in response to both student's and supervisors' needs. The step-by-step discussion of the entire thesis undertaking spells out information for students that academics often take for granted, and that students often struggle to access on their own.

This English edition of a best-selling and award-winning German textbook Reaction Mechanisms: Organic Reactions . Stereochemistry . Modern Synthetic Methods is aimed at those who desire to learn organic chemistry through an approach that is facile to understand and easily committed to memory. Michael Harmata, Norman Rabjohn Distinguished Professor of Organic Chemistry (University of Missouri) surveyed the accuracy of the translation, made certain contributions, and above all adapted its rationalizations to those prevalent in the organic chemistry community in the English-speaking world.
Throughout the book fundamental and advanced reaction mechanisms are presented with meticulous precision. The systematic use of red "electron-pushing arrows" allows students to follow each transformation elementary step by elementary step. Mechanisms are not only presented in the traditional contexts of rate laws and substituent effects but, whenever possible, are illustrated using practical, useful and state-of-the-art reactions. The abundance of stereoselective reactions included in the treatise makes the reader familiar with key concepts of stereochemistry.
The fundamental topics of the book address the needs of upper-level undergraduate students, while its advanced sections are intended for graduate-level audiences. Accordingly, this book is an essential learning tool for students and a unique addition to the reference desk of practicing organic chemists, who as life-long learners desire to keep abreast of both fundamental and applied aspects of our science. In addition, it will well serve ambitious students in chemistry-related fields such as biochemistry, medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry.
From the reviews:
"Professor Bruckner has further refined his already masterful
synthetic organic chemistry classic; the additions are seamless and
the text retains the magnificent clarity, rigour and precision
which were the hallmark of previous editions. The strength of the
book stems from Professor Bruckner s ability to provide lucid
explanations based on a deep understanding of physical organic
chemistry and to limit discussion to very carefully selected
reaction classes illuminated by exquisitely pertinent examples,
often from the recent literature. The panoply of organic synthesis
is analysed and dissected according to fundamental structural,
orbital, kinetic and thermodynamic principles with an effortless
coherence that yields great insight and never over-simplifies. The
perfect source text for advanced Undergraduate and Masters/PhD
students who want to understand, in depth, the art of synthesis
"Bruckner s Organic Mechanisms accurately reflects the way
practicing organic chemists think and speak about organic
reactions. The figures are beautifully drawn and show the way
organic chemists graphically depict reactions. It uses a
combination of basic valence bond pictures with more sophisticated
molecular orbital treatments. It handles mechanisms both from the
"electron pushing perspective" and from a kinetic and energetic
view. The book will be very useful to new US graduate students and
will help bring them to the level of sophistication needed to be
serious researchers in organic chemistry."
"This is an excellent advanced organic chemistry textbook that
provides a key resource for students and teachers alike."
