The Art of Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry

The new edition of the classic textbook that has helped thousands of students understand and solve the complex mechanistic problems posed by organic reactions

The Art of Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry is a must-have handbook for students and professionals alike, offering step-by-step guidance on applying proven strategies and logical techniques to solve complex reaction mechanism problems. With a straightforward approach and conversational style, this highly practical resource provides fully worked organic reaction problems that increase in difficulty from basic to advanced. Organized by specific analysis technique, the problems include complete and accurate discussions of the mechanisms, alternative pathways, comparisons with related reactions, data from quantum chemical calculations, critical reviews of current methods, real-world research and reaction schemes, and illustrated examples.

Now in its third edition, The Art of Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry retains the structure of previous editions, previously rated among the 30 best organic chemistry books of all time by BookAuthority. More than 50 revised organic reaction mechanism problems are complemented by an entirely new set of problems, additional concepts and techniques, expanded coverage of applications in contemporary organic chemistry, embedded cases of the existing reaction pool taken from recent literature, and much more.
* Describes the principles, methods, tools, and problem analysis techniques required to solve organic reaction problems
* Extends the logic and strategy of the mechanistic approach beyond specific reactions and facts
* Discusses practical methods for improved problem solving for organic reaction mechanisms
* Explains tested strategies for analyzing the possibilities of reaction mechanisms between reactants and products
* Contains detailed appendices with definitions and examples of principles, reactions, mechanisms, and reagents

The Art of Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry, Third Edition is an essential volume for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, lecturers, and professionals looking to improve their performance in finding solutions to organic reaction problems. It is an ideal textbook for courses on organic reactions and problem analysis, as well as an excellent supplement for courses covering reactive intermediates and mechanisms of molecular transformations.
