Editorial Reviews

Review

`The subject is presented authoritatively, systematically and concisely without resort to mathematical treatment. As this subject is often given little coverage in textbooks or organic chemistry this text is to be welcomed.' Aslib Book Guide, vol.61, no.11, November 1996

`This book is a useful introduction to stereo-electronic effects in organic chemistry. The style is engaging ... this book is an excellent supplementary text for undergraduates. Sponsorship for the series by Zeneca also ensures that it is extremely good value for money.' Chemistry in Britain, September 1997

`engaging critique of biography .... enjoyable and thought provoking' New Scientist

Format: Paperback
Kirby's Stereoelectronic effects provides a good introduction to the fundamentals of molecular orbital interactions. Makes a nice supplement to advanced organic chemistry texts that are deficient in this area

If you are an organic synthesis student, then this is for you. It has enough information to get the point across and to introduce you to the ideas of HOMO-LUMO, while at the same time not overload you with excruciating details.

By S. Schwanger on September 24, 2009
Format: Paperback
In the physical organic chemistry course I have been taking, we have been talking all about stereoelectronic effects and molecular orbitals. I was having trouble with frontier molecular orbital theory as it relates to stereoelectronic effects and was not finding helpful explanations in other texts I was consulting. A friend recommended I read Kirby, and I am so glad she did. Kirby offers in-depth explanations of stereoelectronic phenomena in a useful and understandable manner. This is a great addition to any organic chemist's library.
