Book Preface

In keeping with a mechanistic emphasis, the book was reorganized. The chapter on mechanism is now Chapter 5 instead of Chapter 10. Thus the first six chapters focus on the mechanistic and structural underpinnings of organic chemistry. Synthetic aspects of organic chemistry are then discussed from a mechanistic and structural point of view. Several new sections have been added and others expanded. An expanded discussion of resonance and aromaticity is found in Chapter 1. A section on organopalladium chemistry and olefin metathesis has been added to Chapter 8 as they relate to current methods of carbon–carbon bond formation. Chapter 9 on free-radical reactions for carbon–carbon bond formation has been revised. The discussion of Diels–Alder chemistry has been moved to Chapter 10 and expanded. A number of new problems have been added which serve to further illustrate the principles developed in each chapter. Finally, thanks to input from many people who have read this text and taught from it, the discussion has been further honed and errors corrected.

What has evolved is a greater initial emphasis of the mechanistic and structural approach to organic chemistry. The application of these principles in a discussion of modern synthetic methodology (functional group manipulation, carbon–carbon bond formation, retrosynthetic analysis) provides a new organizational framework for understanding many of the most common and most important synthetic reactions.

What has not changed is the premise that this text is meant to provide the tools students need to master the material in advanced courses or compete successfully in the workplace.
