My aim is to bring out a study guide of organic chemistry for under graduate students especially for the first year B.Sc. students and those who are interested in organic chemistry, who wish to choose study guide in their careers. This will enable them to have basic and comprehensive knowledge of the reaction, mechanism, properties, stereochemistry and applications of organic compounds. This study guide is presented in a simple and lucid manner, so that those who have some background knowledge of organic chemistry can understand it well. For the sake of convenience, subject matter covered in study guide has been divided into four chapters. 1: Alkanes and Cycloalkanes. 2: Alkenes and Alkynes. 3: Alkyl halides and Aryl halides. 4: [A] Amines and Organic Compounds of nitrogen. [B] Nitroalkanes.
The MCAT is undergoing major changes in early 2015. The test itself will be almost twice as long as its prior incarnation, and future medical students will want even more assistance preparing for this daunting new exam. MCAT Organic Chemistry Review will help them prepare for the organic chemistry material on revised test. The book provides thorough topic reviews of all the general chemistry students need to know, including structures and bonding, substitution and elimination reactions, electrophilic addition reactions, nucleophilic addition and cycloaddition reactions, lab techniques and spectroscopy, and biologically important organic chemistry.
A hands-on guide to assist in the planning and execution of synthetic reactions in the laboratory Despite the maturity of organic chemistry, it can still be very challenging to identify optimal methods for synthetic transformations that perform as well in real-world manufacturing processes as they do in the laboratory. This detailed and accessible guide attempts to address this vexing issue and deliver proven methodologies practicing synthetic chemists will find valuable for identifying reaction conditions that work reliably over the broadest possible range of substrates. Practical Synthetic Organic Chemistry: Provides a practical guide to strategically planning and executing chemical syntheses for the bench chemist in industry Discusses information that is not common knowledge beyond the boundaries of process chemistry groups, such as the synthetic routes of selected contemporary pharmaceutical drugs and practical solvents, as well as green chemistry concepts Highlights key reactions, including substitutions, additions, eliminations, rearrangements, oxidations, and reductions Addresses basic principles, mechanisms, advantages and disadvantages of the methodology, and techniques for achieving laboratory success Incorporating such an extraordinary wealth of information on organic chemistry and its related fields into one complete volume distinguishes Practical Synthetic Organic Chemistry as an incomparable desktop reference for professionals—and an invaluable study aid for students.
Stable radicals – molecules with odd electrons which are sufficiently long lived to be studied or isolated using conventional techniques – have enjoyed a long history and are of current interest for a broad array of fundamental and applied reasons, for example to study and drive novel chemical reactions, in the development of rechargeable batteries or the study of free radical reactions in the body. In Stable Radicals: Fundamentals and Applied Aspects of Odd-Electron Compounds a team of international experts provide a broad-based overview of stable radicals, from the fundamental aspects of specific classes of stable neutral radicals to their wide range of applications including synthesis, materials science and chemical biology. Topics covered include: triphenylmethyl and related radicals polychlorinated triphenylmethyl radicals: towards multifunctional molecular materials phenalenyls, cyclopentadienyls, and other carbon-centered radicals the nitrogen oxides: persistent radicals and van der Waals complex dimers nitroxide radicals: properties, synthesis and applications the only stable organic sigma radicals: di-tert-alkyliminoxyls. delocalized radicals containing the hydrazyl [R2N-NR] unit metal-coordinated phenoxyl radicals stable radicals containing the thiazyl unit: synthesis, chemical, and materials properties stable radicals of the heavy p-block elements application of stable radicals as mediators in living-radical polymerization nitroxide-catalyzed alcohol oxidations in organic synthesis metal-nitroxide complexes: synthesis and magneto-structural correlations rechargeable batteries using robust but redox-active organic radicals spin labeling: a modern perspective functional in vivo EPR spectroscopy and imaging using nitroxides and trityl radicals biologically relevant chemistry of nitroxides Stable Free Radicals: Fundamentals and Applied Aspects of Odd-Electron Compounds is an essential guide to this fascinating area of chemistry for researchers and students working in organic and physical chemistry and materials science.
Written by Organic Chemistry co-author Neil Schore, this invaluable manual includes chapter introductions that highlight new materials, chapter outlines, detailed comments for each chapter section, a glossary, and solutions to the end-of-chapter problems, presented in a way that shows students how to reason their way to the answer.

This book is a result of an investigation of organic chemistry instructional techniques used in Kenya to determine their effectiveness in enhancing understanding of organic chemistry concepts. The author addresses the problem of students’ poor performance in organic chemistry. The book is based on a study conducted in the Rift Valley and Western provinces of Kenya in which quantitative data generation and analysis was largely employed. The major finding was that teachers’ instructional practices do not conform to the expectations of ‘good’ teaching. Dr. Waswa argues that stakeholders such as: chemistry teachers, heads of department, heads of schools and quality assurance officers should encourage adherence to lesson plans by every organic chemistry teacher. This book is a must-read for chemistry teachers, chemistry teacher trainees, chemistry teacher trainers, Heads of Science departments, and Quality assurance Officers in Kenya and beyond.
The first authoritative book on using silver cations in organic chemistry—for catalysis and more! With more sophisticated catalytic methodologies fueling a resurgence in the study of cation-based chemistry, gold and platinum have stepped to the fore as the unique agents used to create new chemical reactions. Although these metals have become a primary focus of researchers in the field, another coinage metal that is often overlooked—but is as powerful as the others—is silver, a far less costly alternative to gold and platinum in aiding the development of new reactions. Making a strong case for the use of silver as a catalyst and structural element in organometal constructs, this authoritative book is the first to explore the benefits of using silver in organic chemistry by taking a close look at silver’s unique reactivity and structural characteristics for the development of new methods and materials. Silver in Organic Chemistry is: The first book to address catalysis using silver, whose use in organic chemistry is on the verge of exploding A resource for researchers wishing to do chemistry with silver cations, an area that stands in the shadow of gold chemistry, but still glistens, demonstrating that all that glitters is not gold—sometimes it’s silver! A guide for “first attempts” in working with silver cations Edited by a very well-respected, highly visible authority in this field Silver in Organic Chemistry promotes further scientific discussion by offering important new ways to examine the future possibilities of an emerging field. By elevating the importance of silver chemistry, this thought-provoking guide illustrates how this versatile metal can become an increasingly significant player in opening the door to new catalytic organic reactions and new organometal materials.
