Mechanisms of Organic Reactions is aimed at first and second year chemistry undergraduates. This authorative and up-to-date overview begins with a chapter in which modern terminology, definitions, and concepts of mechanisms and reactivity are introduced. The following four chapters areaccounts of the mechanisms of four of the main classes of reactions of aliphatic compounds. However, rather than simply being presented with the mechanism, the reader is first given the experimental evidence, and then shown how this leads to the mechanistic deductions. With problems at the end ofeach chapter and a short bibliography this book will be invaluable to first and second year chemistry undergraduates.
Howard Maskill is at University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Editorial Reviews

`'...concise introduction to important mechanisms of organic reactions...Howard Maskill deosn't just describe mechanisms, he also indicates the type of evidence on which they are based, and encourages his readers tow eigh the evidence careflly.''New Scientist
