Inspiring and motivating students from the moment it published, Organic Chemistry has established itself in just one edition as the students' choice of organic chemistry text. This second edition takes all that has made Organic Chemistry the book of choice, and has refined and refocused it to produce a text that is even more student-friendly, more coherent and more logical in its presentation than before. At heart, the second edition remains true to the first, being built on three principles: An explanatory approach, through which the reader is motivated to understand the subject and not just learn the facts; A mechanistic approach, giving the reader the power to understand compounds and reactions never previously encountered; An evidence-based approach, setting out clearly how and why reactions happen as they do, giving extra depth to the reader's understanding. The authors write clearly and directly, sharing with the reader their own fascination with the subject, and leading them carefully from topic to topic. Their honest and open narrative flags pitfalls and misconceptions, guiding the reader towards a complete picture of organic chemistry and its universal themes and principles. Enriched with an extensive bank of online resources to help the reader visualise the structure of organic compounds and their reaction mechanisms, this second edition reaffirms the position of Organic Chemistry as the essential course companion for all organic chemistry students.

Carbon is everywhere: in the paper of this book and the blood of our bodies. It's with us from beginning to end, present in our baby clothes and coffin alike. We live on a carbon planet, and we are carbon life. No other element is so central to our well-being; yet, when missing or misaligned, carbon atoms can also bring about disease and even death. At once ubiquitous and mysterious, carbon holds the answers to some of humanity's biggest questions. Where did Earth come from? What will ultimately become of it-and of us? With poetic storytelling, earth scientist Robert M. Hazen explores the universe to discover the past, present, and future of life's most essential element. We're not only "made of star stuff," as Carl Sagan famously observed, but "Big Bang stuff," too. Hazen reveals that carbon's grand symphony began with a frenzied prelude shortly after the dawn of creation, bringing new attention to the tiny number of Big Bang-created carbon atoms that often get overlooked. In minutes, violently colliding protons and neutrons improbably formed the first carbon atoms, which can still be found within our bodies. His book then unfolds in four movements, building momentum as he explores carbon as the element of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. He visits the famed volcanic crater Solfatara di Pozzuoli near Naples, where venting carbon dioxide and other noxious fumes condense into beautiful crystals. He climbs the cliffs of the Scottish Highlands and delves deep into the precious-metal mines of Namibia, journeying toward Earth's mysterious core in search of undocumented carbon structures. Hazen often asks us to pause and consider carbon's role in climate change and what we can do about it, for our lives and this element are inextricably intertwined. With prose that sparkles like a diamond, Symphony in C tells the story of carbon, in which we all have a part.
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.

Since its original appearance in 1977, Advanced Organic Chemistry has maintained its place as the premier textbook in the field, offering broad coverage of the structure, reactivity and synthesis of organic compounds. As in the earlier editions, the text contains extensive references to both the primary and review literature and provides examples of data and reactions that illustrate and document the generalizations. While the text assumes completion of an introductory course in organic chemistry, it reviews the fundamental concepts for each topic that is discussed. The two-part fifth edition has been substantially revised and reorganized for greater clarity. Among the changes: Updated material reflecting advances in the field since 2001 's Fourth Edition, especially in computational chemistry; A companion Web site provides digital models for study of structure, reaction and selectivity; Solutions to the exercises provided to instructors online. The material in Part A is organized on the basis of fundamental structural topics such as structure, stereochemistry, conformation and aromaticity and basic mechanistic types, including nucleophilic substitution, addition reactions, carbonyl chemistry, aromatic substitution and free radical reactions. Together with Part B: Reaction and Synthesis, the two volumes are intended to provide the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student in chemistry with a sufficient foundation to comprehend and use the research literature in organic chemistry.

""This book should become an indispensable asset on the bookshelves of pharmaceutical laboratories in academia and in industry, as well as of laboratories devoted to plant protection. I am convinced that studying this book will be an eye-opener for many scientists in the field of life sciences. Furthermore, for teachers in this area it will not only be a useful compilation of the various languages and definitions of organic stereochemistry, but also a welcome source of examples for demonstrating to their students the intricate and intriguing role stereochemistry plays in the chemistry of life."" -Prof. Dr. Dieter Seebach, Laboratory of Organic Chemistry, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
This textbook presents the molecular scale of matter in the broad diversity and richness of its three dimensions, giving due attention when relevant to the temporal dimension in which molecules exist, act, and react.
The focus is on two significant fields of three-dimensional chemistry: a presentation of the guiding principles in organic stereochemistry, followed by a focus on the biochemical and medicinal relevance of this discipline.
The treatment of "Guiding Principles "gives priority to didactic clarity and nomenclature issues, as detailed and illustrated in Parts 1 to 4: '"Symmetry Elements and Operations, Classification of Stereoisomers"''"Stereoisomerism Resulting from One or Several Stereogenic Centers"''"Other Stereogenic Elements: Axes of Chirality, Planes of Chirality, Helicity, and ("E," "Z")-Diastereoisomerism"''"Isomerisms about Single Bonds and in Cyclic Systems"'
This is followed by Parts 5 to 8 which focus on the biomedicinal relevance of stereochemistry, with special reference to the biochemistry and pharmacology of medicinal compounds.
Here, examples and applications are discussed and illustrated based on their relevance to a given specific stereochemical aspect: '"Chirality in Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology"''"The Conformational Factor in Molecular Pharmacology"''"The Concept of Substrate Stereoselectivity in Biochemistry and Xenobiotic Metabolism"''"Prostereoisomerism and the Concept of Product Stereoselectivity in Xenobiotic Metabolism"'
Finally, the book contains a gift for broad-minded readers with an interest in the historical roots of stereochemistry: Part 9: '"Molecular Chirality in Chemistry and Biology: Historical Milestones"'

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."
This is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of the
field of artificial nucleic acids. Covering a tremendous amount of
literature on the chemistry, biology, and structure of artificial
nucleic acids, it will constitute an invaluable source of
information for the specialist and for young researchers interested
in starting a career in this fascinating field of research alike.
The second edition of this "classic" among textbooks on heterocycle
chemistry. Here, Theophil Eicher and Siegfried Hauptmann, both

important aspects of this fascinating field in a clear manner.
Organic chemistry can overwhelm students and force them to fall back on memorisation. But once they understand how to use mechanisms, they can solve just about any problem. With an organisation by mechanism, students will understand more, and memorise less. The Second Edition of this groundbreaking text provides a fresh, but proven approach to get students confident using mechanisms. Smartwork5 online homework supports learning by mirroring the text's organisation and pedagogy. Students use an intuitive drawing tool while receiving instant hints and answer-specific feedback, making practice more productive.
Organic Chemistry: Mechanistic Patterns is the very first introductory organic chemistry title that holistically focuses on a mechanistic approach; an approach that has proven to achieve a deeper understanding of chemical reactivity. This mechanistic approach to the dynamic world of organic chemistry visualizes reactivity as a collection of patterns in electron movement, making it possible for students to describe why a reaction occurred. Recognizing patterns of electron flow between seemingly different reactions can allow students to predict how a chemical will react, even if they have never seen a particular reaction before. The text takes great care to establish a progression of reactivity, from simple to complex, introducing functional groups as necessary, while focusing on the reaction at hand rather than the various things that each functional group does. To help students further visualize key concepts, the text includes Ghislain Deslongchamps' acclaimed Organic ChemWare; interactive animations and simulations that bring static textbook molecular representations to life. Together, we seek to open students' eyes to the dynamic world of organic chemistry with a more powerful and systematic approach to learning.
Aldol Reactions provides a comprehensive up-to-date overview of aldol reactions including application of different metal enolates; catalytic aldol additions catalyzed by different Lewis acids and Lewis bases; enantioselective direct aldol additions; antibodies and enzyme catalyzed aldol additions and the recent aggressive development of organocatalyzed aldol additions.
The power of each method is demonstrated by several applications in total synthesis of natural products. The pros and cons of these methodologies with regard to stereoselectivity, regioselectivity and application in total synthesis of natural products are discussed. Great importance is set to the diverse possibilities of the manual of aldol reaction to install required configurations in complicated natural product synthesis.
