Advanced Organic Chemistry: Part A: Structure and Mechanisms

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 13, 2007 - Science - 1203 pages
5 Reviews

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.

Both Part A and Part B: Not particularly useful as a textbook but makes a great doorstop, rug flattener and futon-holder-upper. The writing style was inaccessible, poorly-defined and dull, yet professors continue assigning it as a textbook. It reads as though the authors were trying to sooth their own fragile egos rather than provide a useful guide to important organic chemistry topics. It is emblematic of everything wrong with the culture in this field.
Here is a list of far better books on the exact same material:
Physical organic: Anslyn/Dougherty, Modern Physical Organic Chemistry
Synthetic: Clayden/Greeves/Warren, Organic Chemistry (later chapters are advanced/synthetic - it's all bundled in the UK)
Mechanisms: Grossman, The Art of Writing Reasonable Organic Reaction Mechanisms
List of named reactions: just don't. It's the 21st century - we have databases and search engines.

About the author (2007)

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (Ph.D. 1963). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry. With his students, Professor Carey has published over forty research papers in synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry.

Professor Sundberg is primarily engaged in teaching and chemical education. Along with Francis A. Carey he is the author of "Advanced Organic Chemistry. Professor Sundberg is also interested in synthetic methodology in heterocyclic chemistry and is the author of "Indoles" in the Best Synthetic Methods Series (Academic Press, 1996).
