It has been a real challenge for us to try to cover the elements of modern organic chemistry with sufficient breadth to anticipate the interests and needs of the future chemists, biologists, physicians, medical scientists, and engineers, who constitute the majority of those who study the subject, and, at the same time, give a balanced view of both its current accomplishments and difficulties.

Hall of Mount Holyoke College, who read and commented not only on the whole of the first draft but also a much-revised second draft. Special thanks are due to Drs.

As before, we will be pleased to receive corrections and suggestions from our readers for further improvement of later editions. Acidity of Alkynes No period in the history of organic chemistry has been as dynamic and productive of research bxsic as the twelve years between the completion of the first and present editions of this textbook.

Structural Organic Chemistry 3: Our thanks also go to Ms. The index was prepared with a HP calculator system, and it would never have been possible to alphabetize and edit the entries without the help of equipment loaned by Mr. More about Spectroscopy The approach we will take in this book to the nomenclature problem is described goberts more detail in Chapter 3 pp.


Unsaturated and Polycarbonyl Compounds Our attempt has resulted in a large book that may appear unwieldy. We are very appreciative of the substantial assistance and hospitality provided by these universities. The revised drafts were prepared in part while one of us was on leave at Stanford University and the other casegio the University of Hawaii. Perhaps the discipline has now progressed in breadth and complexity that no simple short text can suffice, any more than the old-fashioned grocery store can compete with the supermarket to supply the diverse needs of a modern cazerio.

Carboxylic Acids and Their Derivatives Enols and Enolate Anions. Use of systematic nomenclature is a bit like energy conservation – we all recognize it is necessary, but we would just as soon the start be made after we are dead.

But along with this “best of times,” there is a “worst of times” coming from princilles recognition that many widely used organic compounds are more toxic than previously suspected. Over the years, many teachers and students have taken time to send us their comments regarding the first edition, and many of these suggestions have been very helpful in preparing the second edition.

Caserio emphasizes thermochemistry to aid caseerio undergraduate’s understanding of organic reactions. Cycloalkanes, Cycloalkenes and Cycloalkynes Examples include rather detailed discussions of the properties of solvents, the differences between resonance and molecular-orbital treatments of valence, ionization strengths of acids, the origin of spin-spin splitting and kinetic effects in nuclear magnetic resonance spectra, reaction mechanisms, photosynthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, peptide-sequence determinations and peptide syntheses, enzyme action, oof reactions of transition-metal compounds.


As in the earlier edition, considerable attention is given to the application of the principles of thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, kinetics, and spectroscopy to understanding and correlating the myriad of seemingly unrelated facts of organic chemistry. Patricia Sullivan for their seemingly tireless efforts and continual contributions through the various stages of editing and proofreading.

The phenomenal growth of organic chemistry during the past decade and the switch by the indexes of Chemical Abstracts to use much more systematic nomenclature suggests that the right time is now. Nucleophilic Substitution and Elimination Reactions 9: Stereoisomerism of Organic Molecules 6: Natural Products and Biosynthesis Instead, we intend to provide a broad enough range of topics to accommodate almost any desired emphasis or approach to the subject.

Bonding in Organic Molecules 7: We owe them much for their patience and helpful suggestions.

Finally, the patience of our families during the several years that it has taken to write and cheistry this book is worthy of very particular mention and appreciation.
