About this book

This book, which has become the standard text for graduate students, provides the basis for deeper understanding of the structure of organic compounds and the mechanisms of organic reactions. In this revised volume, the topics of aromaticity and the reactions of aromatic compounds have been divided into two chapters. The chapter on free radical reactions has been reworked to emphasize the distinctive mechanistic and kinetic aspects of these reactions.Part A of this revised, two-volume text provides the reader with a basis for a clearer understanding of the structures of organic compounds and the mechanisms of organic reactions. Carey and Sundberg treat the topics of aromaticity and the reactions of aromatic compounds in two separate chapters and have extensively reworked the chapter on free radical reactions to emphasize their distinctive mechanistic and kinetic aspects.
