Strategies and Solutions to Advanced Organic Reaction Mechanisms,
Edition 1 A New Perspective on McKillop's Problems
By Andrei Hent and John Andraos

Publication Date: 26 Jun 2019

Strategies and Solutions to Advanced Organic Reaction Mechanisms: A New Perspective on McKillop's Problems builds upon Alexander (Sandy) McKillop’s popular text, Solutions to McKillop’s Advanced Problems in Organic Reaction Mechanisms, providing a unified methodological approach to dealing with problems of organic reaction mechanism. This unique book outlines the logic, experimental insight and problem-solving strategy approaches available when dealing with problems of organic reaction mechanism. These valuable methods emphasize a structured and widely applicable approach relevant for both students and experts in the field.

By using the methods described, advanced students and researchers alike will be able to tackle problems in organic reaction mechanism, from the simple and straight forward to the advanced.

Key Features

  • Provides strategic methods for solving advanced mechanistic problems and applies those techniques to the 300 original problems in the first publication
  • Replaces reliance on memorization with the understanding brought by pattern recognition to new problems
  • Supplements worked examples with synthesis strategy, green metrics analysis and novel research, where available, to help advanced students and researchers in choosing their next research project
