Book: Basic Principles of Organic Chemistry (Roberts and Caserio) – Chemistry LibreTexts

robsrts Guillet of the University of Toronto, and Dr. Over the years, many teachers and students have taken time to send us their comments regarding the first edition, and many of these suggestions have been very helpful in preparing the second edition.

To a degree, our book has a caseroo to a supermarket because not only do we cover many subjects, we cover the important ones in detail. You are granted permission for individual, educational, research and non-commercial reproduction, distribution, display and performance of this work in any format.

New reagents, new reactions, and extraordinary syntheses have been manifold.

It has been a real challenge for us to try to cover the elements of modern organic chemistry with sufficient breadth to anticipate the interests and needs of the future chemists, biologists, physicians, medical scientists, and engineers, who constitute the majority of those who study the subject, and, at the same time, give a balanced view of both its current accomplishments and difficulties. This general organic Textmap by John D. No period in the history of organic chemistry has been as dynamic and productive of research accomplishment as the twelve years between the completion of the first and present editions bssic this textbook.


This book makes a substantial break with tradition in the matter of organic nomenclature. But along with this “best of times,” there is a “worst of times” coming from the recognition that many widely used organic compounds are more toxic than previously suspected.

Use of systematic nomenclature is a bit like energy conservation – we all recognize it is odganic, but we would just as soon the start be made after we are dead. Stereoisomerism of Organic Molecules 6: More on Stereochemistry Examples include rather detailed discussions of the properties of solvents, the differences between resonance and molecular-orbital treatments of valence, ionization strengths of acids, the origin of spin-spin splitting and kinetic effects in nuclear magnetic resonance spectra, reaction mechanisms, photosynthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, peptide-sequence determinations and peptide syntheses, enzyme action, and reactions of transition-metal compounds.

A Caltech Library Service. Kaiser of the University of Chicago, J. Robert and Marjorie C. The students at both Caltech and the University of California at Irvine participated in class-testing the first draft and contributed significantly to the final draft.

Structural Organic Chemistry 3: The approach we will take in this book to the nomenclature problem is described in more detail in Chapter 3 pp. It was a pleasure to work with Cjemistry.

Special thanks are due to Drs. Our attempt has resulted in a large book that may appear unwieldy. Basic Principles of Organic Chemistry, second edition. Arenes, Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution Unsaturated and Polycarbonyl Compounds We are very appreciative of the substantial assistance and hospitality provided by these universities.


One of the authors remembers vividly the protests of his thesis supervisor to the idea of acquiescing to the admonition of a manuscript reviewer who felt that “crotyl chloride” and “methylvinylcarbinyl chloride” represented just too much of a mixing of nomenclature systems for isomeric compounds.

Many individuals contributed to the progress and content of this edition. Our thanks also go to Ms.

As before, we will be pleased to receive corrections and suggestions from our readers for further improvement of later editions.

Nonetheless, our society has come to depend on synthetic organic chemicals, and we may ponder the fact that in just a few years the petroleum that makes so many useful organic compounds easily available off be in very short supply throughout the world.

Between editions, we often received suggestions from professors to write a book “covering just the material I need in my course,” but no two ever seemed to agree on what “the” material should be. cjemistry
