Book Summary

This book marks a significantly different approach to the subject. It has been designed specifically to offer a simpler and less sophisticated treatment of organic reaction mechanisms than that to be found in the Guidebook. It is based on three underlying principles: that there are three types of reaction - substitution, addition and elimination; that there are three types of reagent - nucleophiles, electrophiles and radicals; and that there are two effects - electronic and steric - through which the behaviour of a particular atom or group can be influenced by the rest of the molecule of which it is a constituent part. A Primer to Mechanism in Organic Chemistry is an essential resource for first- and second-year chemistry undergraduates and particularly, though not exclusively, those not then proceeding to further chemical study. It is also a useful reference for sixth-form students.
