This text is aimed at students entering first year university courses. The book is not meant to replace lecture material or conventional textbooks, but rather to enhance the course by challenging the student to test his or her knowledge. Indeed, the introduction emphasizes that students should read their lecture notes and textbook before tackling the self-learning text. The self-learning text concentrates on reactions and mechanisms with emphasis on rationalizing reactions rather than memorizing them. The text assumes knowledge covered in Patrick's Beginning Organic Chemistry. In each section of the book, the student is led through the subject matter by being given a short piece of theory, followed by a question. A space is then provided for the student's answer and then the full model answer is given. The next bit of theory follows and so on. In this way, students are encouraged to think about what they are reading at all times, rather than getting information 'gift wrapped'. Each section finishes with a summary of the most important facts.

Organic Chemistry: Structure, Mechanism, Synthesis, Second Edition, provides basic principles of this fascinating and challenging science, which lies at the interface of physical and biological sciences. Offering accessible language and engaging examples and illustrations, this valuable introduction for the in-depth chemistry course engages students and gives future and new scientists a new approach to understanding, rather than merely memorizing the key concepts underpinning this fundamental area. The book builds in a logical way from chemical bonding to resulting molecular structures, to the corresponding physical, chemical and biological properties of those molecules. The book explores how molecular structure determines reaction mechanisms, from the smallest to the largest molecules—which in turn determine strategies for organic synthesis. The book then describes the synthetic principles which extend to every aspect of synthesis, from drug design to the methods cells employ to synthesize the molecules of which they are made. These relationships form a continuous narrative throughout the book, in which principles logically evolve from one to the next, from the simplest to the most complex examples, with abundant connections between the theory and applications. Featuring in-book solutions and instructor PowerPoint slides, this Second Edition offers an updated and improved option for students in the two-semester course and for scientists who require a high quality introduction or refresher in the subject. Offers improvements for the two-semester course sequence and valuable updates including two new chapters on lipids and nucleic acids Features biochemistry and biological examples highlighted throughout the book, making the information relevant and engaging to readers of all backgrounds and interests Includes a valuable and highly-praised chapter on organometallic chemistry not found in other standard references

'How to succeed in organic chemistry' gives the reader a solid understanding of the principles of organic reaction mechanisms, such that they can draw structures, stereoisomers and reaction mechanisms with confidence. Throughout, the author speaks the language of students to build their confidence and interest. At heart, the book promotes active learning to ensure the necessary skills become so ingrained that they become something students simply cannot forget, and do not need to revise. As such, the book structures learning so that the reader encounters the right things at the right time, helping to 'internalise' key concepts. Concepts, explanations and examples are presented in short, easy-to-read chapters, each of which explores one of a number of themes, including 'Basics', 'Habits', 'Common error', 'Reaction detail', and 'Practice'. The text is accompanied by over 40 videos, in which the author discusses the solutions to problems posed in the text, thereby giving even more support and encouragement to the learner.
