Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

"Advanced Organic Chemistry … the well-known textbook for graduate students – has now appeared in a 5th edition. … Carey & Sundberg will be interesting to all students who seek a detailed understanding of organic chemistry, and who wish to refresh and embellish their existing knowledge. On the strength of the scope and quality of the explanations, this pair of texts is recommended for use as the resource of first resort for specific research questions in one’s later career." (www.organische-chemie.ch, January, 2008)

Came brand new and very fast.
Daniel Hoagland
This textbook provides ample examples of practical synthetic applications and clearly explains the mechanism and/or rational for using the particular reaction.
Kevin Arendt
Overall a great book for the Graduate student in Organic Chemistry.

Format: Paperback
This review is specifically meant to refer to the latest edition (5th ed.) of this book. The earlier editions were quite good, but the 5th edition completely misses the mark. Ordinarily, one would think that a book such as this would get better and better with each new edition. Not so with this book. For some reason, the 5th edition is loaded with mistakes.....many of these appear to be typesetting errors (e.g., atoms in the wrong place, pentavalent carbons, nonsense intermediates within reaction pathways, etc.). It is terribly disappointing. I do not know what happened at the publisher this time, but, in good conscience, they really should not have released this book the way it is. It does not appear to have been the authors' fault, but rather it was likely the fault of Springer (the publisher). This looks like an example of the mindless side of capitalism....large publishing companies who have already taken over much of their competition also have ridiculous deadlines to meet quarterly earnings goals, so they rush through the publication process and end up turning out garbage. The only way that these companies ultimately avoid getting into a heap of trouble with the FTC or other consumer advocate agencies is by issuing online addendums filled with corrections to the myriad of errors. Ask yourselves, is that why you want to buy a new book..... so that you have to download a 50-page corrections addendum to fix all of the errors that the publisher missed or opted not to correct in the first place? This sort of thing is happening more and more these days in the publishing industry, even with software. And the larger and larger these publishing companies become, the more we see it.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
While a bit dated (1990), it is nevertheless a comprehensive overview of organic synthesis suitable for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students in organic chemistry. Unlike reference works like March, it is more of a textbook - however, a good number of references (with few mistakes) are provided. Along with part "A" of the series and a more reference-oriented work such as March, it provides a solid foundation and entry point to the literature for advanced students of organic chemistry.

Format: Paperback
I found this book extremely easy to read and makes a great addition to the library owned by an organic chemist. Certainly, this book deserves much attention and I believe that it describes many concepts in a simpler manner when comparison to Jerry March's book is called upon. The book is well-written and is exactly what undergraduate students interested in organic chemistry need to read if they want to expand their knowledge of the field without getting into a complex text right away. Definitively, I recommend this book in the shelf of any practicing and non-practicing chemist.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought that the book was clear and interesting. It explained the reactions in sufficient detail for the first graduate level organic class I took.

My only complaint was that there was no answer guide. The answers are given as literature references, necessitating that you go look them up. When you are assigned 30 of his problems, that's not a trivial task, especially when some of the journals are esoteric. Also, finding the journal isn't enough, as often the journal citation has nothing to do with the problem. The "answer molecule" might just appear somewhere in that article.

And then, to add insult to injury, there are errors in the citations.

It's a great reference, but I wish that the problems in the book had more readily available answers.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Matthew M. Yau on March 6, 2002
Format: Paperback
Carey and Sundberg had written the most detailed and briliant account in the subject of organic chemistry. This volume along with Part A (Structure and Mechanisms) contribute to the most updated account in advanced organic chemistry. Part B deals with organic reactions with emphasis on stereochemical consequences. Discussion focuses on the most important reactions and methods in modern organic synthesis.
Alkylation of nucleophilic carbon intermediates discuss regioselectivity and stereoselectivity in enolate formation. The coverage on enolate alkylation is excellent that emphasizes on the model that predicts the stereochemistry of alkylation. The discussion also introduces Ireland model and Zimmerman-Traxler model. Reaction of carbon nucleophiles with carbonyl groups focuses on some of the most significant reactions: Mannich reaction, mixed aldol reaction, Wittig reaction and the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmon reaction. The discussion again focuses on control of regiochemistry and stereochemistry of the condensation via the use of chair transition states.
The best sections in this Part B volume of the book is the complete detailed discussion on reduction and oxidation, Reduction reagents and methods introduced include hydrogenation, hydride donors, stereoselective hydride reduction, various dissolving metal reductions. Oxidation chapter summerizes all important methods like transition-metal oxidant, Collins reagents, epoxidation, peroxidic reagents, ozonolysis, and selective oxidation of certain functional groups.
The revised Part B edition also includes full discussion on reactions involving transition metals and organoboron, organosilicon, and organotin compounds. This includes some of the most updated and current research topics.
