March's Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Mechanisms, and Structure

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Feb 19, 2020 - Science - 2144 pages

The completely revised and updated, definitive resource for students and professionals in organic chemistry

The revised and updated 8th edition of March's Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Mechanisms, and Structure explains the theories of organic chemistry with examples and reactions. This book is the most comprehensive resource about organic chemistry available. Readers are guided on the planning and execution of multi-step synthetic reactions, with detailed descriptions of all the reactions

The opening chapters of March's Advanced Organic Chemistry, 8th Edition deal with the structure of organic compounds and discuss important organic chemistry bonds, fundamental principles of conformation, and stereochemistry of organic molecules, and reactive intermediates in organic chemistry. Further coverage concerns general principles of mechanism in organic chemistry, including acids and bases, photochemistry, sonochemistry and microwave irradiation. The relationship between structure and reactivity is also covered. The final chapters cover the nature and scope of organic reactions and their mechanisms.

This edition:

  • Provides revised examples and citations that reflect advances in areas of organic chemistry published between 2011 and 2017
  • Includes appendices on the literature of organic chemistry and the classification of reactions according to the compounds prepared
  • Instructs the reader on preparing and conducting multi-step synthetic reactions, and provides complete descriptions of each reaction

The 8th edition of March's Advanced Organic Chemistry proves once again that it is a must-have desktop reference and textbook for every student and professional working in organic chemistry or related fields.
