More info

In organic chemistry, knowing how to perform chemical transformations step by step or how to assign the correct configuration and nomenclature to organic compounds is something that requires more than just a strong theoretical basis. There are some considerations that professors and lecturers often do not have time to explain during regular courses. Moreover, while there are many excellent textbooks available on the theory of organic chemistry, the same cannot be said for rational guides to organic chemistry problems. This guide provides study problems that are suitable for different levels of organic chemistry, and successfully used by students attending organic chemistry classes in chemistry, pharmacy, pharmaceutical chemistry, agriculture, biology, natural sciences, environmental sciences, chemical engineering, biotechnology, and industrial chemistry. The problems are all solved and fully explained. Every single step of each problem is shown in a logical and easy-to-follow format, with constant reference to theory. In addition to solved problems, the book provides methods, strategies, and explanations that help students master organic chemistry problems. 

The Guide includes the following chapters:

  1.      Nomenclature of hydrocarbons
  2.      Stereochemistry
  3.      Reactions of alkenes and alkynes: electrophilic addition 
  4.      Nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions
  5.      Reactions of aldehydes and ketones: nucleophilic addition
  6.      Reactivity of carboxylic acids and their derivatives: nucleophilic acyl substitution
  7.      Enolate ions: reactions of α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds
  8.      Amines
  9.      Chemistry of the aromatic compounds
  10.      Substitutive nomenclature: nomenclature of hydrocarbons with more than one functional group
  11.      Preparation schemes
