Featuring a revolutionary new approach to teaching mechanisms that will lead your students to an immediate understanding of each new reaction, this Enhanced Fifth Edition of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY offers numerous biological examples and applied problems, increased coverage of bioorganic chemistry, expanded in-text learning tools, and a new Appendix that shows students how to overcome typical mistakes in arrow pushing. Ideal for students majoring in chemistry as well as in the health and biological sciences, the Enhanced Fifth Edition builds upon the text's hallmarks of unified mechanistic themes, focused problem-solving, use of applied problems from the pharmaceutical field, challenging synthesis problems and medicinal chemistry problems, and unrivaled visuals. To reflect the latest developments from the field, the book now covers the organic chemistry of sulfur and phosphorus. The book's revolutionary approach to teaching mechanisms begins in Chapter 6, with detailed explanations of mechanism elements, including when they are appropriate to use. From then on, reaction mechanisms are described as combinations of these individual mechanism elements. Throughout the book, reaction mechanisms are offset in a clear, stepwise fashion, and similarities between related mechanisms are emphasized. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.The acylbenzene products of Friedel-Crafts acylation reactions can be reduced to the corresponding alkylbenzene using Clemmenson or ... Reactions include using an alkene in the presence of a strong acid to give a carbocation that generates an alkylbenzene, using an ... and most are electron releasing; therefore they are activating toward electrophilic aromatic substitution compared to benzene itself.
