The Art of Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry
This long-awaited new edition helps students understand and solve the complex problems that organic chemists regularly face, using a step-by-step method and approachable text. With solved and worked-through problems, the author orients discussion of each through the application of various problem-solving techniques. Teaches organic chemists structured and logical techniques to solve reaction problems and uses a unique, systematic approach. Stresses the logic and strategy of mechanistic problem solving -- a key piece of success for organic chemistry, beyond just specific reactions and facts Has a conversational tone and acts as a readable and approachable workbook allowing reader involvement instead of simply straightforward text Uses 60 solved and worked-through problems and reaction schemes for students to practice with, along with updated organic reactions and illustrated examples Includes website with supplementary material for chapters and problems: Miguel Alonso is a Professor of Organic and Ecological Chemistry at the Universidad de Los Andes in Venezuela. With over forty years of teaching experience, he has also led courses on these topics in the US, Europe, and Latin America. His previous research interest includes the theory and application of metal carbenoids in cyclopropanes and heterocycles, and currently, focuses on chemical ecology of tropical mountain ecosystems. Among his publications, Dr. Alonso has over 90 research articles, 5 book chapters, and 4 books including the first edition of The Art of Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry , published by Wiley.
