The mission of Intermediate Organic Chemistry is to bridge the gap between introductory Organic Chemistry coursework and advanced/graduate-level coursework but to do so in a way that extends the... More > student-centered approach of most modern introductory Organic Chemistry textbooks. This text makes extensive use of detailed explanations and color coding to facilitate the learning process.
This text’s style is one that is shared by many instructors of Organic Chemistry: mechanistically driven and detailed. Extensive use of color coding helps students to learn mechanism and cogently predict reaction products. The electrons that are mechanistically involved in each transformation are color coded. The mechanistic arrows originating from those electrons are colored identically, as are the bonds and/or lone pairs that result from the electron flow. This approach, along with detailed verbal explanations, conveys the narrative of the mechanism.< Less
To master Organic Chemistry, it is essential to master mechanism. This book uses a novel approach to help you better understand the mechanisms of 80 common organic reactions.
Each one is color... More > coded so that you can clearly see the changes that take place during the reaction. The electrons involved in the mechanism are color coded, as are the arrows originating from those electrons and the bonds or lone pairs formed by them in the intermediates and product. As a result, you can trace specific pairs of electrons through an entire transformation. The description of what each mechanistic arrow means is color coded correspondingly so that it is easy to match up the text with the relevant portion of a reaction diagram.< Less
