This book bridges the gap between sophomore and advanced / graduate level organic chemistry courses, providing students with a necessary background to begin research in either an industry or academic environment.
•Covers key concepts that include retrosynthesis, conformational analysis, and functional group transformations as well as presents the latest developments in organometallic chemistry and C–C bond formation
•Uses a concise and easy-to-read style, with many illustrated examples
•Updates material, examples, and references from the first edition
•Adds coverage of organocatalysts and organometallic reagents
