A guidebook to Mechanism in organic chemistry 6 edition by Peter Sypes
A Guidebook to Mechanism in OrganicChemistry(Sixth Edition) is written Peter Sykes . This book was first published in 1985.
This book is very helpful to understand the basics of reactions mechanism in organic chemistry, students and teachers of organic chemistry can equally get benefit from this books.
A classic textbook on mechanistic organic chemistry which is characterised particularly by its clarity, careful choice of examples and its general approach that is designed to lead to a ready understanding of the subject matter. This guidebook is aimed clearly at the needs of the student, with a thorough understanding of, and provision for, the potential conceptual difficulties he or she is likely to encounter.
Below is the list of topics covered in this book
Structure, reactivity and mechanism
Energetics, kinetics, and the investigation of the mechanism
The strengths of the acids and bases
Nucleophilic substitution at a saturated carbon atom
Carbocations, electron deficient nitrogen and oxygen atoms and their reactions
Electrophilic and nucleophilic substitution in aromatic systems
Electrophilic and nucleophilic addition to C=C
Nucleophilic addition to C=O
Carbanions and their reactions
Radical and their reactions
Symmetry controlled reactions
