Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fleming uses nonquantitative molecular orbital theory to explainmany common phenomena in organic chemistry. As such, this is a verypowerful tool for students of advanced organic chemistry. Much ofwhat is taken simply on faith or with some hand waving in sophomoreorganic chemistry can be readily explained with molecular orbitaltheory, which is usually considered too advanced for students atthat level. Though this book could be used as the primary textbookfor a course solely on molecular orbitals in organic chemistry, itwill more likely be used as a reference source for an advancedorganic chemistry course for upper-level undergraduates or graduatestudents." (CHOICE, August 2010) 

"The new 'Fleming' is a must for every lecturer and everystudent of chemistry—a fantastic book. In this new form thetextbook will last for another 30 years and remain as fresh as didits predecessor!" (Angewandte Chemie International EditionMarch 2010)

From the Back Cover

Molecular orbital theory I used by chemists to describe thearrangement of electrons in chemical structures. It is also atheory capable of giving some insight into the forces involved inthe making and breaking of chemical bonds – the chemicalreactions that are often the focus of an organic and breaking ofchemical bonds – the chemical reactions that are often thefocus of an organic chemist’s interest. Organic chemists witha serious interest in understanding and explaining their workusually express their ideas in molecular orbital terms, so much sothat it is now an essential component or every organicchemist’s stills to have some acquaintance with molecularorbital theory.

Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions is botha simplified account of molecular orbital theory and a review of itapplications in organic chemistry; it provides a basic introductionto the subject and a wealth of illustrative examples. In this bookmolecular orbital theory is presented in a much simplified, andentirely non-mathematical language, accessible to every organicchemist, whether student or research worker, whether mathematicallycompetent or not. Topics covered include:

  • Molecular Orbital Theory
  • Molecular Orbitals and the Structures of OrganicMolecules
  • Chemical Reactions – How Far and How Fast
  • Ionic Reactions – Reactivity
  • Ionic Reactions – Stereochemistry
  • Pericyclic Reactions
  • Radical Reactions
  • Photochemical Reactions

Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions: Student Edition serves in a sense as a second edition of theauthor’s influential earlier book Frontier Orbitals andOrganic Chemical Reactions, but has been completely rewritten,greatly enlarging the chapters on molecular orbital theory itself,and on the theoretical basis for the principle of hard and softacids and bases, and a whole chapter on the stereochemistry of thefundamental organic reactions. Correlation diagrams have been addedto the discussion of pericyclic chemistry, and a great deal more inthat, the largest chapter. A number of new topics, both omissionsfrom the earlier book and work that has taken place in theintervening years, are included, and there are more words ofcaution in discussing frontier orbital theory itself.

Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions: StudentEdition is an individual textbook on this important subject forstudent or organic, physical organic and computationalchemistry.

One of the better books on molecular orbital theory; well written, proceeds at a good pace and has plenty of illustrations. I recommend this to all graduate students and upper level undergrads.

This is an outstanding book on Molecular Orbital theory. If I was teaching a graduate level course in physical organic chemistry I would use this as one of the suggested titles. It is a must for the practicing physical organic chemist. It is sufficiently complex to give an understandability to very difficult subject material.

This book was pretty good, I got it for a graduate course on arrow pushing.
Although I am not an organic chemist. Sometimes it was a little wordy or difficult to follow. But was pretty good.
