Advanced Problems in Organic Reaction Mechanisms by Alexander McKillop (Eds.)

Every student of organic chemistry is taught the subject on a mechanism basis and almost all research in organic chemistry is mechanism based. During the last few years there have been a number of new books and revised editions of older books on the theory and principles of organic reaction mechanisms but few contain problems on which the reader can test his or her skills and understanding of the subject. Major undergraduate textbooks do have sets of problems which are useful at the introductory level but there are no recent specialist books of problems at a more advanced level. This book is a collection of 300 problems which challenge the user to devise reasonable mechanistic interpretations for sets of experimental observations. Almost all of the problems are taken from the literature of the last twenty years. Each is a separate entity although similar mechanistic themes occur in several quite different problems. Answers are not given nor are references to the original literature. The user who fails to solve a particular problem and reaches an appropriate level of frustration should be able relatively quickly to locate the original literature from the information given in the problem
