Examples include rather detailed discussions of the properties of solvents, the differences between resonance and molecular-orbital treatments of valence, ionization strengths of acids, the origin of spin-spin splitting and kinetic effects in nuclear magnetic resonance spectra, reaction mechanisms, photosynthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, peptide-sequence determinations and peptide syntheses, enzyme action, and reactions of transition-metal compounds.

Mary Forkner who was the production supervisor.

More on Stereochemistry As in the earlier edition, considerable attention is given to the application of the principles of thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, kinetics, and spectroscopy to understanding and correlating the myriad of seemingly unrelated facts of organic chemistry. This general organic Textmap by John D. Some are carcinogenic; some may be destroying the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere, which protects all life from the sun’s strong ultraviolet radiation; others are concentrated doberts persist in living tissue to as yet unknown effect.

Nonetheless, our society has come to depend on synthetic organic chemicals, and principples may ponder the fact that in just a few years the petroleum that makes so many useful organic compounds easily available will be in very short supply throughout the world.

Special thanks are due for the suggestions of the reviewers, in particular to Professor George E. As before, we will be pleased to receive corrections caerio suggestions from our readers for further improvement of later editions.


Much of this material could be appropriately categorized as belonging to a “Department of Fuller Explanation,” and rightly so because it represents a real attempt to achieve a genuine understanding of difficult points of fact and theory. There is no intention on our part to caserko just the right amount of material for some particular course of study.

Arenes, Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution Guillet of the University of Toronto, and Dr. It has been a real challenge for us to try to cover the elements of modern organic chemistry with sufficient breadth to anticipate the interests and needs of the future chemists, biologists, physicians, medical scientists, and engineers, who constitute the majority of those who study the subject, and, at the same time, give a balanced view of both its current accomplishments and difficulties.

Stanley Kurzet of Infotek Systems. One of the authors remembers vividly the protests of his thesis supervisor to the idea of acquiescing to the orvanic of a manuscript reviewer who felt that “crotyl chloride” and “methylvinylcarbinyl chloride” represented just too much of a mixing of nomenclature systems for isomeric compounds.

It was difficult to decide to do this because changes in this area are very hard to achieve, perhaps for the reason that they threaten the viability of what already robertw published and, indeed, even our customary forms of verbal communication.

Basic Principles of Organic Chemistry, second edition

Introduction to Organic Chemistry 2: Resonance and Molecular Orbital Methods More on our objectives with regard to different possible approaches principlse the study of organic chemistry is given in the latter part of Section p. Addition Reactions of the Carbonyl Group This book makes a substantial break with tradition in the matter of organic nomenclature.

Lassila as well as Ms. Helpful suggestions also were received from Professors Robert E. Finally, the patience of our families during the several years that it has taken to write and produce this book is worthy of very particular mention and appreciation.


The index was prepared with a HP calculator system, and it would never have been possible to alphabetize and edit the entries without the help of equipment loaned by Mr.

Structural Organic Chemistry 3: Alcohols and Ethers More information and software credits. A Caltech Library Service.

Amino Acids, Peptides, and Proteins The students at both Caltech and the University of California at Irvine participated in class-testing the first draft and contributed significantly to the final draft. New techniques and new instruments for analysis and determination of structures, improved methods for theoretical calculations, as well as new junctures with physical, inorganic, and biochemistry, have made organic chemistry an enormously vital discipline.

Georg Klatt chemixtry did the final artwork, and Ms. The revised drafts were prepared in part while one of us was on leave at Stanford University and the other at the University of Hawaii.

Natural Products and Biosynthesis To a degree, our book has off parallel to a supermarket because not only do we cover many subjects, we cover the important ones in detail.
