Key texts in the renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers series have been fully refreshed and updated to suit the needs of today's students, lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. The rigorous and yet accessible treatment of each subject area is ideal for those wanting to know more about a particular topic not covered comprehensively in existing undergraduate texts. Moreover, cutting-edge examples and applications throughout the texts show the relevance of thechemistry being described to the real world. Pericyclic reactions constitute a fundamental class of organic chemistry, including such commercially important synthetic reactions as theDiels-Alder reaction. This primer gives a concise and accessible account of these reactions, enabling students to recognise the different types of pericyclic reaction and understand their application in organic synthesis.

Among the various advancements in organic chemistry over the past 50 years, pericyclic reactions occupy a significant position. Extremely elegant, useful and manifold, these reactions are found in nearly every natural product synthesis and allow chemists to create complex molecules in a very simple way. As a result, the 1981 Nobel Prize was awarded to chemists who developed the theoretical background to these reactions. Based on fourteen years of teaching a graduate course, this long awaited textbook presents Diels-Alder reactions, electrocyclic reactions, sigmatropic rearrangements, ene reactions and their asymmetric versions, organometallic pericyclic reactions plus many more topics in a highly didactic way. Throughout the focus is on the important facts and aspects, with both classical and new examples explained in detail. Over 1200 references from the original literature are cited. The only up-to-date work of its kind on the market, this is an invaluable tool for students and chemistry teachers, organic chemists, and libraries. With a foreword by Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann.

Pericyclic Reactions, Volume 1 covers the theoretical approaches to pericyclic reactions and pericyclic reactions of reactive intermediates and of particular reaction types. The book discusses the operational criteria for evaluation of concertedness in potential pericyclic reactions; and the Mobius-Hückel treatment of organic systems and reactions and molecular orbital following as a technique in organic chemistry. The text also describes some pericyclic reactions of carbenes and carbanions. Physicists and people involved in the study of pericyclic reactions will find the book invaluable.

Pericyclic Reactions: A Mechanistic and Problem-Solving Approach provides complete and systematic coverage of pericyclic reactions for researchers and graduate students in organic chemistry and pharmacy programs. Drawing from their cumulative years of teaching in the area, the authors use a clear, problem-solving approach, supplemented with colorful figures and illustrative examples. Written in an accessible and engaging manner, this book covers electrocyclic reactions, sigmatropic reactions, cycloaddition reactions, 1,3-dipolar reactions, group transfer, and ene reactions. It offers an in-depth study of the basic principles of these topics, and devotes equal time to problems and their solutions to further explore those principles and aid reader understanding. Additional practice problems are provided for further study and course use. Comprehensive coverage of important topics such as 1,3 dipolar, pyrolytic, and cycloaddition reactions Problem-solving approach with clear figures and many worked and unworked problems Contents are applicable to advanced students and researchers in organic chemistry

This Book Is Especially Designed According To The Model Curriculum Of M.Sc. (Prev.) (Pericyclic Reactions) And M.Sc. (Final) (Photochemistry Compulsory Paper Viii) Suggested By The University Grants Commission, New Delhi. As Far As The Ugc Model Curriculum Is Concerned, Most Of The Indian Universities Have Already Adopted It And The Others Are In The Process Of Adopting The Proposed Curriculum. In The Present Academic Scenario, We Strongly Felt That A Comprehensive Book Covering Modern Topics Like Pericyclic Reactions And Photochemistry Of The Ugc Model Curriculum Was Urgently Needed. This Book Is A Fruitful Outcome Of Our Aforesaid Strong Feeling. Besides M.Sc. Students, This Book Will Also Be Very Useful To Those Students Who Are Preparing For The Net (Csir), Slet, Ias, Pcs And Other Competitive Examinations.The Subject Matter Has Been Presented In A Comprehensive, Lucid And Systematic Manner Which Is Easy To Understand Even By Self Study. The Authors Believe That Learning By Solving Problems Gives More Competence And Confidence In The Subject. Keeping This In View, Sufficiently Large Number Of Varied Problems For Self Assessment Are Given In Each Chapter. Hundred Plus Problems With Solutions In The Last Chapter Is An Important Feature Of This Book.

This book provides a concise introduction to pericyclic and photochemical reactions for organic synthesis. In the first part about pericyclic reactions, the author explains electrocyclic reactions, cycloaddition reactions, sigmatropic rearrangements, and group transfer reactions. The second part on photochemistry is dedicated to photochemical reactions of a variety of compound classes, including alkenes, dienes, and polyenes, carbonyl compounds, and aromatic compounds. Additionally, photofragmentation reactions are described in a dedicated chapter. The last chapter gives an outlook on applications of photochemistry and natural photochemical phenomena. Both parts start with a comprehensive presentation of the general principles of the pericyclic and photochemical reactions. All chapters are rich in examples, which help illustrate the explained principles and establish ties to results and trends in recent research. Additionally, each chapter offers exercises for students, and solutions to the problems are provided in a separate appendix. This book nicely illustrates the utility of pericyclic and photochemical reactions and provides students and researchers with the tools to apply them routinely for an efficient synthesis of complex organic molecules. It will therefore appeal to advanced undergraduate students, graduate and postgraduate students, and even to practitioners and scientists in the field of organic synthesis. The rich examples and exercises will also make it a versatile tool for teachers and lecturers.
