This helpful, useful, practical book presents the most important achievements in organic chemistry over the past decade, summarizing such major developments as C-H activation, organocatalysis, and supramolecular chemistry. Each chapter contains two or three personal, hitherto unpublished, commentaries by leading experts on the topic. This reference work focuses on four main areas: the total synthesis of natural products and chemical biology; synthetic methodology; physical organic chemistry and chemistry relevant to meeting the urgent needs of humanity. The result is a complete and extremely useful source of a wide variety of information for graduate students, post-docs and researchers.
This book is designed for students of biology, molecular biology, ecology, medicine, agriculture, forestry and other professions where the knowledge of organic chemistry plays the important role. The work may also be of interest to non-professionals, as well as to teachers in high schools. The book consists of 11 chapters that cover: - basic principles of structure and constitution of organic compounds, - the elements of the nomenclature, - the concepts of the nature of chemical bond, - introductions in NMR and IR spectroscopy, - the concepts and main classes of the organic reaction mechanisms, - reactions and properties of common classes or organic compounds, - and the introduction to the chemistry of the natural organic products followed by basic principles of the reactions in living cells.
An indispensable guide for all synthetic chemists who want to learn about the most relevant reactions and reagents employed to synthesize important heterocycles and drugs! The synthesis of natural products, bioactive compounds, pharmaceuticals, and drugs is of fundamental interest in modern organic chemistry. New reagents and reaction methods towards these molecules are being constantly developed. By understanding the mechanisms involved and scope and limitations of each reaction applied, organic chemists can further improve existing reaction protocols and develop novel efficient synthetic routes towards frequently used drugs, such as Aspirin or Penicillin. Applied Organic Chemistry provides a summary of important (name) reactions and reagents applied in modern organic chemistry and drug synthesis. It covers rearrangement, condensation, olefination, metathesis, aromatic electrophilic substitutions, Pd-catalyzed C-C bond forming reactions, multi-component reactions, as well as oxidations and reductions. Each chapter is clearly structured, providing valuable information on reaction details, step-by-step mechanism, experimental procedures, applications, and (patent) references.
Searching for reaction in organic synthesis has been made much easier in the current age of computer databases. However, the dilemma now is which procedure one selects among the ocean of choices. Especially for novices in the laboratory, it becomes a daunting task to decide what reaction conditions to experiment with first in order to have the best chance of success. This collection intends to serve as an "older and wiser lab-mate" one could have by compiling many of the most commonly used experimental procedures in organic synthesis. With chapters that cover such topics as functional group manipulations, oxidation, reduction, and carbon-carbon bond formation, Modern Organic Synthesis in the Laboratory will be useful for both graduate students and professors in organic chemistry and medicinal chemists in the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries.
Showcases the important role of organometallic chemistry in industrial applications and includes practical examples and case studies This comprehensive book takes a practical approach to how organometallic chemistry is being used in industrial applications. It uniquely offers numerous, real-world examples and case studies that aid working R&D researchers as well as Ph.D. and postdoc students preparing to ace interviews in order to enter the workforce. Edited by two world-leading and established industrial chemists, the book covers flow chemistry (catalytic and non-catalytic organometallic chemistry), various cross-coupling reactions (C-C, C-N, and C-B) in classical batch chemistry, conjugate addition reactions, metathesis, and C-H arylation and achiral hydrogenation reactions.
This book is a hands-on guide for the organic chemist. Focusing on the most reliable and useful reactions, the chapter authors provide the information necessary for a chemist to strategically plan a synthesis, as well as repeat the procedures in the laboratory. Consolidates all the key advances/concepts in one book, covering the most important reactions in organic chemistry, including substitutions, additions, eliminations, rearrangements, oxidations, reductions Highlights the most important reactions, addressing basic principles, advantages/disadvantages of the methodology, mechanism, and techniques for achieving laboratory success Features new content on recent advances in CH activation, photoredox and electrochemistry, continuous chemistry, and application of biocatalysis in synthesis Revamps chapters to include new and additional examples of chemistry that have been demonstrated at a practical scale
This book summarizes 100 essential mechanisms in organic chemistry ranging from classical such as the Reformatsky Reaction from 1887 to recently elucidated mechanism such as the copper(I)-catalyzed alkyne-azide cycloaddition. The reactions are easy to grasp, well-illustrated and underpinned with explanations and additional information.
How to succeed in organic chemistry gives the reader a solid understanding of the principles of organic reaction mechanisms, such that they can draw structures, stereoisomers and reaction mechanisms with confidence. Throughout, the author speaks the language of students to build theirconfidence and interest.At heart, the book promotes active learning to ensure the necessary skills become so ingrained that they become something students simply cannot forget, and do not need to revise. As such, the book structures learning so that the reader encounters the right things at the right time, helping to"internalise" key concepts.Concepts, explanations and examples are presented in short, easy-to-read chapters, each of which explores one of a number of themes, including "Basics", "Habits", "Common error", "Reaction detail", and "Practice".The text is accompanied by over 40 videos, in which the author discusses the solutions to problems posed in the text, thereby giving even more support and encouragement to the learner.
