The Proton: Applications to Organic Chemistry deals with several aspects of the proton drawn from organic chemistry.
This book begins with an introductory chapter, followed by discussions on the strengths of neutral organic acids and neutral organic bases. The mode of transfer of hydrogen in its three forms-H+, H•, and H-, alternative sites of protonation or deprotonation of organic compounds, and acid-base chemistry of unstable and metastable species are also elaborated. This text concludes with a presentation of the activation induced in organic molecules by proton addition or removal and its catalytic effects.
This publication is intended for practicing organic chemists and researchers conducting work on protons.
