Reactive Intermediates Paperback / softback
by Christopher J. (Professor of Organic Chemistry, University of Loughborough) Moody, Gordon H. (Lecturer in Chemistry, University of Oxford, and Fellow, Pembroke College, Oxfor Whitham
Part of the Oxford Chemistry Primers series
Neutral reactive intermediates - radicals, carbenes, nitrenes, and arynes - have an interesting place within the history of organic chemistry.
Once regarded as curiosities, then intensively studied from the mechanistic point of view by physical organic chemists, they now play a key role in synthetic chemistry.
This concise text concentrates on the last aspect of reactive intermediate chemistry; the important reactions of these electron-deficient species are laid outclearly and simply, with carefully chosen examples illustrating their use in organic synthesis.
Each chapter includes a few problems as well as suggestions for further reading and provides undergraduates with an invaluable summary of this important topic in organic chemistry.
