Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

Intended for students of intermediate organic chemistry, this text shows how to write a reasonable mechanism for an organic chemical transformation. The discussion is organized by types of mechanisms and the conditions under which the reaction is executed, rather than by the overall reaction as is the case in most textbooks. Each chapter discusses common mechanistic pathways and suggests practical tips for drawing them. Worked problems are included in the discussion of each mechanism, and "common error alerts" are scattered throughout the text to warn readers about pitfalls and misconceptions that bedevil students. Each chapter is capped by a large problem set.

​Robert B. Grossman earned his A.B. degree at Princeton University and his Ph.D. at MIT. He then moved from Cambridge, Massachusetts to Cambridge, England for his postdoctoral work. In 1994, he moved from the United Kingdom (UK) to the University of Kentucky (UK), where he has been ever since. At UK, Dr. Grossman maintains an active research program focused on synthetic methodology, target-directed synthesis, and biosynthesis. He is also the creator of ACE Organic, a Web-based organic chemistry homework program. Dr. Grossman has also served two terms as one of the two faculty representatives on the UK Board of Trustees.
