Advanced Organic Chemistry: Part A: Structure and Mechanisms

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 27, 2007 - Science - 1199 pages

Since its original appearance in 1977, Advanced Organic Chemistry has maintained its place as the premier textbook in the field, offering broad coverage of the structure, reactivity and synthesis of organic compounds. As in the earlier editions, the text contains extensive references to both the primary and review literature and provides examples of data and reactions that illustrate and document the generalizations. While the text assumes completion of an introductory course in organic chemistry, it reviews the fundamental concepts for each topic that is discussed.

The two-part fifth edition has been substantially revised and reorganized for greater clarity. Among the changes: Updated material reflecting advances in the field since 2001’s Fourth Edition, especially in computational chemistry; A companion Web site provides digital models for study of structure, reaction and selectivity; Solutions to the exercises provided to instructors online.

The material in Part A is organized on the basis of fundamental structural topics such as structure, stereochemistry, conformation and aromaticity and basic mechanistic types, including nucleophilic substitution, addition reactions, carbonyl chemistry, aromatic substitution and free radical reactions. Together with Part B: Reaction and Synthesis, the two volumes are intended to provide the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student in chemistry with a sufficient foundation to comprehend and use the research literature in organic chemistry.

I have enjoyed this book immensely. I have studied this book for many years, and use it to teach my students at Romano Scientific here in New York. The book presents Advanced Organic Chemistry in a very clear way. The summary at the end of each chapter is fantastic. Dr. Jim Romano Co- CEO Orgoman, CEO Romano Scientific.

For all of those who wanna learn something about organic chemistry, I highly recommand you to have Carey's Advanced organic chemistry. This book, for both part A and part B, is amazing!
As far as I
know, no other graduate level organic chemistry book can cover this much knowledge as this one does. Part A basically covers all the theories you need to know in not only school but also in research! Part B covers all important knowledge about synthesis and reaction. B part is amazing one also but not so amazing as the A part..if you really want to study synthesis, this one is good, at least first two chapters of B part are among the top in all of same level text books( talking about consendation reation with very detailed and carefull discuss, the problems in the end of the chapters are very impressive and valuable!). However, several other chapters in partB are not so good and do not cover enough knowledge you need to know. For example, organometallic chemistry part is not deep enough on theory
what's more, carey's text book is good for you to teach yourself! read the chapters and solve the problems( problems are usually way easier than the reading part..however, some of the problems are extremely worthy doing). You can really learn much more than your classmates!
if you want to be a top student in organic chemistry, again, I highly recommond you to have this book!

About the author (2007)

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (Ph.D. 1963). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry. With his students, Professor Carey has published over forty research papers in synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry.

Professor Sundberg is primarily engaged in teaching and chemical education. Along with Francis A. Carey he is the author of “Advanced Organic Chemistry. Professor Sundberg is also interested in synthetic methodology in heterocyclic chemistry and is the author of “Indoles” in the Best Synthetic Methods Series (Academic Press, 1996).
