- Written by an expert educator with a sound understanding of the needs of undergraduate, postgraduate and industrial organic chemists. The subject is covered with the clarity and precision necessary to enable the student to understand the material with the minimum of distraction.
- Contains many examples of the application of mechanistic principles in synthetic organic chemistry, ensuring the undergraduate student understands how chemists apply their understanding of reaction mechanism in the development of new synthetic methods
- Bridges the gap between standard undergraduate textbooks, which generally take a functional group approach to chemistry, and advanced level textbooks, which often obscure the really fundamental information in the level of detail they present.
