Every serious student of chemistry should try to develop a `feel' for the way molecules behave - for the way they are put together and especially for the rules of engagement which operate when molecules meet and react. This primer describes how stereoelectronic effects control this behavior. It is the only concise text on this topic at the undergraduate level. This is an important subject area and the comprehensive yet concise coverage in this book shows students how to build up a powerful but simple way of thinking about chemistry.
|CRC Handbook of Optical Resolutions via Diastereomeric Salt Formation
Lowest new price: $229.95
Lowest used price: $140.00
List price: $229.95
Optically active compounds are gaining ever-increasing importance in organic chemistry, both in the academic and the industrial arenas. The rational synthesis of the growing number of chiral chemicals, drugs, and natural products demands efficient methods for producing these compounds in an enantiomerically, highly pure form. Despite the available alternative techniques, optical resolution via Diastereomeric salt formation remains the most widely used method of preparing pure enantiomers.
The CRC Handbook of Optical Resolutions Via Diastereomeric Salt Formation is the first book to exclusively address this important organic chemical process. It provides fast, one-stop access to a wealth of information, including all of the available data on 100 resolving agents, a list of 500 optically active compounds available in bulk along with their suppliers, data on more than 3,500 resolutions, and 4,200 citations.
This handbook helps answer virtually any question that may arise during the development of a new resolution process.
Which resolving agent and solvent should I use under these conditions?
How can I separate the diastereoisomers?
How can I optimize a resolution process?
How do I determine enantiomeric purity?
Which supplier has the resolving agent I need?
For a racemate already resolved, what were the resolving agent, solvent, and relevant citation?
This is the first book to deal exclusively with all aspects of this important organic chemical process, both theoretical and practical. With an abundance of analyzed examples, this single, authoritative reference provides all of the information you need to perform, develop, and optimize optical resolutions via Diastereomeric salt formation
|Stereoselectivity in Organic Synthesis (Oxford Chemistry Primers, 63)
Lowest new price: $19.95
Lowest used price: $4.98
List price: $25.00
Author: Garry Procter
This clear and concise text is concerned with the reactions used in stereoselective organic synthesis. It sets out to consider the general principles upon which such reactions are founded, especially stereoelectronic effects, and how these are applied to a wide range of stereospecific and stereoselective organic reactions used in organic synthesis today. The general topics covered include: reactions of carbonyl compounds, aldol reactions, additions to C-C double bonds, oxidation and reduction, rearrangements, and enzyme catalysed hydrolysis. Reactions whose stereoselectivity is either substrate controlled, reagent controlled or controlled by a catalyst are covered, and where appropriate, examples of their application in organic synthesis are provided. Fully illustrated throughout, with set problems and suggestions for further reading to accompany each chapter, this informative text will be an invaluable study aid for all undergraduate chemistry students. Undergraduates in related subjects studying chemistry to second year level or higher will also find this book useful.
|Pericyclic Reactions (Oxford Chemistry Primers)
Lowest new price: $20.39
Lowest used price: $3.82
List price: $35.00
Author: Ian Fleming
Pericyclic reaction - the third type of organic reaction mechanism along with ionic and radical reactions - include some of the most powerful synthetically useful reactions, like the Diels - Alder reaction, 1,3- dipolar cycloadditions, the Alder ene reaction, Claisen rearrangements, the 2,3-Wittig rearrangement, diimide reduction, sulfoxide elimination and many others. These reactions are characterised by having cyclic transition structures, and also have highly predictable stereochemical features. Every organic chemist must be able to recognize the various types of pericyclic reaction and know something of their mechanisms and the factors that affect how well they work in organic synthesis. This book identifies the four main classes of pericyclic reaction, and discusses the main characteristics of the most important class, cycloadditions - providing a working knowledge, based on real examples, of their scope, patterns of reactivity, and stereochemistry. Then it explains the main features using ideas based in molecular orbital theory, but ( as in the companion book by A. J. Kirby on Stereoelectronic Effects ) without mathematics. It presents the Woodward - Hoffmann rules in the form of two all-encompassing rules, one for thermal reactions and its opposite for photochemical reactions. These rules are explained in detail and carefully illustrated, so that you will be able to predict the stereochemical outcome for any pericyclic reaction. The remaining chapters use this theoretical framework to show how the rules work with the other three classes of pericyclic reactions - electrocyclic reactions, sigmatropic rearrangements and group transfer reactions. By the end of the book, you will be able to recognise any pericyclic reaction and predict with confidence whether it is allowed, and with what stereochemistry, and you will have a working knowledge of the range of pericyclic reactions available to the synthetic organic chemist.

List price: $53.99
Author: David G. Morris
Stereochemistry covers the fundamental principles in all aspects of stereochemistry. This concise resource is generously enriched with numerous worked examples. Concentrating on organic chemistry, early chapters in this resourceful publication deal mainly with definitions of terms such as chirality, enantiomers, diastereoisomers and racemisation, complete with suitable examples to illustrate key concepts. Use of a polarimeter and associated definitions are described, together with two different conventions D, L and R, S for specification of configuration. The distinction between conformation and configuration is developed to include assignment onf configurations to di-substituted cyclohexanes and to the decalins.
|Stereochemistry at a Glance
Lowest new price: $17.62
Lowest used price: $1.83
List price: $37.95
Author: Jason Eames
Stereochemistry deals with the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms in molecules. All chemical reactions take place three dimensions and the spatial arrangement of those atoms can have a profound effect on the outcome of a chemical reaction. A good understanding of stereochemistry is, therefore, fundamental to any detailed appreciation and study of organic chemistry.
Based on the highly successful at a Glance series from Blackwell Publishing, this book provides a concise introduction and overview of stereochemistry for students studying chemistry and related courses at undergraduate level. It then reinforces that overview by presenting 49 fully worked out stereochemistry problems, presented in the familiar at a Glance double page layout. A further 98 supplementary problems, with abbreviated answers, are designed to help the undergraduate student rapidly develop the knack of thinking in three dimensions, and generate the confidence to apply their knowledge of stereochemistry in the classroom, the exam room or the laboratory.
Graphical presentation of information is central to the book. As befits such a visual subject, this facilitates the rapid assimilation and understanding of the basic concepts, principles and definitions of stereochemistry. Students using Stereochemistry at a Glance will find they have a resource with which they can quickly, economically and confidently acquire, regularly review and revise the basic facts that underpin stereochemistry.

Number 88 in the well-known Oxford Chemistry Primer series introduces upper-undergraduate students to how the three-dimensional shapes of molecules influence their chemical and physical properties. It starts with an introduction to common stereochemical terms used throughout the book. Chapter two covers the structures of simple unstrained organic molecules followed by examples of strained molecules. The third chapter deals with conformational analysis of acyclic and carbocyclic molecules, ending with a short exposition of molecular mechanics. Chapter four is about stereoisomerism in molecules and compounds. A full description of enantiomerism and diastereomerism is followed by an explanation of the nomenclature for absolute and relative configurations of molecules and for topism. The book concludes with a survey of stereoselective and stereospecific reactions, including the use of chiral catalysts and auxiliaries, rules for predicting stereoselectivity, and double asymmetric synthesis.
|Reflections on Symmetry in Chemistry and Elsewhere
Lowest new price: $109.28
Lowest used price: $3.96
List price: $62.50
Author: Edgar Heilbronner
What do Schrödinger's wave functions, Escher's intricate tiling patterns and chemistry's latest marvel, buckminsterfullerene, have in common?
This stunning book, written by two world-famous scientists, introduces the reader to one of nature's most fundamental, and ubiquitous, phenomena: Symmetry.
Enormous in scope, this scientific tour-de-force covers topics as diverse as quantum mechanics, stereochemistry, Penrose tilings and Raphael's Madonna. The authors connect these apparently unrelated fields in a completely non-mathematical fashion, which should appeal to the general and specialist reader alike.
Lucidly written and beautifully illustrated, this book provides an eminently readable discussion of the omnipresent concept of symmetry, its application in all branches of science, and its perception in nature, art and elsewhere.
