"...the book remains tremendous value for money...more pages per buck than most other texts...so it will remain a firm favourite as a general organic text and an easy-to-use 1-volume reference...will undoubtedly appear in all organic chemistry libraries and probably on many chemists' personal bookshelves too." (Organic Process Research & Development Journal, Vol. 5, No. 6, November 2001) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Publisher
Revised and updated to reflect the growth in the field, it covers the three fundamental aspects of the study of organic chemistry--reactions, mechanisms and structure. Part One explores the structure of organic compounds, providing the necessary background for understanding mechanisms. Part Two discusses reactions and mechanisms. Organized by reaction type, each of these chapters discusses the basic mechanisms along with reactivity and orientation as well as the scope and mechanisms of each reaction. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The first part of the book deals with strcutures in organic chemistry. It serves as a prerequisite to understanding of reactions and mechanisms. This section contains information about some of the most ambiguous organic intermediates (species) such as nitrenes, carbenes, carbocations, and tautomers. One can also find detailed discussion on cis-trans isomerism and structural reactivity relations.
Part II of the volume discusses organic reactions and types of reactions in depth. Representative reactions include nucleophilic substitution, electrophilic substitution, rearrangements and radical reactions. Though March's work is self-containing as a sole reference, it is also meant to serve as a companion to major texts such as Miller's "Advanced Organic Chemistry", the double volumes of "Advanced Organic Chemistry" by Carey and Sundberg and any undergraduate introductory texts.
March's book distinguishes itself in discussion of organic named reaction such as Susuki reaction, Wolf-Kishner reduction, Swern oxidation, etc. One might often encounter difficulty in looking up named reactions. Jerry March's book will ease much of the trouble. Organic chemists and students should not miss this treasured work. Highly recommended.
