Editorial Reviews

Review

The Oxford chemistry primers are now firmly rooted in the hearts (and I hope the minds) of both students and teacher of chemistry...The established text is of course Fleming's excellent account of the area : Frontier orbitals and organic chemical reactions...Quite simply, this is an excellent workbook for studying pericyclic reactions from concept to application. Fleming has done an extraordinary job in producing a text on what many perceive as a difficult subject, whyich is accessible to beginners and useful reading for reputed experts./Christopher G. Frost/Chemistry in Britain.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Eduardo on March 9, 2002
Format: Paperback
If you want to learn pericyclic chemistry (with no mathematics), this book is the right choice. For understanding the text, is only necesary to have a little background in order to get an idea about the subject of the boook (most organic chemistry books, for example: John McMurry or T. R. W. Graham Solomons classic texts, have a chapter about this kind of reactions and reviewing them will be enough).
Fleming's writing style is so easy to asimilate, and the book really "teaches" you the basic principles: mechanisms, Woodward-Hoffmann rules, stereochemistry prediction (and tells you "why" it is like this), exceptions and their possible explanations.
There are examples all over the text, but the most important thing....It has end-of-chapter problems, and "their answers" too (so you can check if you have done it well).
After trying it, I got some skills about this kind of reactions and they allow me to face some "Advanced Organic Chemistry" books, without "feeling scared of them" any more.

I needed something for my organic class that could help me understand these topics of orbitals and their interactions, and this book is an excellent introduction. It explains the four pericyclic reactions in a way its clear, without the use of mathmatics that maybe it could generate some confusion.
