This expansive and practical textbook contains organic chemistry experiments for teaching in the laboratory at the undergraduate level covering a range of functional group transformations and key organic reactions.The editorial team have collected contributions from around the world and standardized them for publication. Each experiment will explore a modern chemistry scenario, such as: sustainable chemistry; application in the pharmaceutical industry; catalysis and material sciences, to name a few. All the experiments will be complemented with a set of questions to challenge the students and a section for the instructors, concerning the results obtained and advice on getting the best outcome from the experiment. A section covering practical aspects with tips and advice for the instructors, together with the results obtained in the laboratory by students, has been compiled for each experiment. Targeted at professors and lecturers in chemistry, this useful text will provide up to date experiments putting the science into context for the students.

All the basic principles of the field of aromatic chemistry are clearly presented in this important account. Many compounds of industrial and biological significance are used as examples with consideration given to structure, reactions, and properties. Topics such as thermodynamic versus kinetic control and pericyclic reactions are also introduced. In addition to benzene and the classes of aromatic compounds derived from it, the text covers polycyclic arenes, and the small and large ring systems which are embraced by the wider definition of aromaticity. The text will be especially useful for courses in organic chemistry.

The carbonyl group is the commonest functional unit of organic chemistry and a thorough understanding of its reactivity is fundamental for organic synthesis. It appears in many classes of compound, of which aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acid derivatives are the most important. This Primer covers the chemistry of these classes within an up-to-date mechanistic framework which embraces reactions with simple nucleophiles (hydration, acetal formation, and condensation with aminonucleophiles); enols and enolates; and their reactions with electrophiles, including alkylating agents and carbonyl groups. Core Carbonyl Chemistry is central to organic chemistry and will be invaluable to students taking chemistry or biochemistry courses at University.

Die sehr schnelle Entwicklung von Lebensmittelchemie und Lebensmitteltechno logie in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten, die durch die starke Erweiterung sowohl der analytischen als auch der verfahrenstechnischen Möglichkeiten bedingt ist, läßt den international bestehenden Mangel an zusammenfassenden Darstel lungen für Unterricht und Fortbildung besonders fühlbar werden. Das vor liegende Lehrbuch der Lebensmittelchemie soll dazu beitragen, die Lücke zu schließen. Wir konnten uns bei seiner Abfassung auf Vorlesungen stützen, die wir seit über 15 Jahren an der Technischen Universität München für verschie dene Fachrichtungen halten. Da sich die getrennte Behandlung aller wichtigen Lebensmittelinhaltsstoffe {Proteine, Lipide, Kohlenhydrate, Aromastoffe etc. ) einerseits und aller wich tigen Lebensmittelgruppen (Milch, Fleisch, Eier, Getreide, Obst, Gemüse etc. ) andererseits im Unterricht bewährt hat, ist der Stoff auch im vorliegenden Buch so gegliedert. Inhaltsstoffe, die nur in bestimmten Lebensmitteln vorkom men, werden dort behandelt, wo sie eine besondere Rolle spielen. Den Zusatz 'Stoffen und der Kontamination von Lebensmitteln sind eigene Kapitel ge widmet. Ausführlich dargestellt werden die physikalischen und chemischen Eigenschaften aller wichtigen Inhaltsstoffe, soweit sie die Grundlage für das Verständnis der bei der Gewinnung, Verarbeitung, Lagerung und Zubereitung von Lebensmitteln ablaufenden oder zu erwartenden Reaktionen, sowie der bei der Lebensmittelanalyse benutzten Methoden sind. Weiterhin wurde ver sucht, die Zusammenhänge zwischen Strukturen und Eigenschaften auf der Ebene der Inhaltsstoffe und auf der Ebene der Le bonsmittel deutlich zu machen. Der Stoff wurde auf die Chemie der Lebensmittel konzentriert und ohne Berücksichtigung nationaler oder internationaler lebensmittelrechtlicher Vor scbrüten dargestellt.

This succinct text outlines the main classes of transition metal organometallic complexes and introduces the reader to the chemistry of compounds with metal-carbon s-bonds: metal carbonyls, metal alkyls, and metal alkylidenes and alkylidnes. The synthetic methods leading to each class ofcompounds are illustrated with pertinent examples, followed by the discussion of characteristic structures and reactivity patterns. The aim is to allow undergraduate students a quick overview over this area of chemistry. Highlights and excursions stress general principles and relate the materialto specific applications such as catalytic processes.

The general principles of polar rearrangements are brought together in this undergraduate chemistry text, which deals with all the major rearrangements involving electron-deficient atoms or charged intermediates. Reactions involving migration to electron-deficient carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and sulphur, and sigmatropic rearrangements involving polar species, are thus treated in a coherent and consistent manner. Clear discussions of the reaction mechanisms are followed by examples of synthetic applications providing a concise yet comprehensive account of the nature and importance of these processes.

Currently there is no concise teaching text aimed at 2/3rd year undergraduates on organosulfur chemsitry. Organosulfur chemistry is widely taught at this level. After a brief introductory chapter the main part of the book deals with the preparation and chemical properties of the principal types of organosulfur compounds classified under the headings: Divalent sulfur compounds, Tricoordinate sulfur compounds, and Tetracoordinate sulfur compounds. In choosing examples to illustrate the text, the guiding principle has been that the illustrations should provide insight into and an understanding of the characteristic features of organosulfur chemistry. Two concluding chapters deal, on the one hand, with applications of organosulfur compounds in organic synthesis and, on the other, with a brief summary of organoselenium chemistry, highlighting the similarities and differences with respect to organosulfur chemistry.

The fern-like patterns of frost on a cold window, eroded landscapes, and particles grown in an aerosol all have forms that are conventionally regarded as irregular, with little or no symmetry. In this book the reader is introduced to the fractal dimension, a concept that unifies the description of such diverse and irregular objects and implies that they all possess a new form of symmetry. The growth of these different objects is controlled by similar simple processes; descriptions of simple experiments that will bring the principles involved to life in a modestly equipped laboratory are also provided. The relevance of fractal concepts to the structure and chemistry of porous solids, and to the growth of polymers and colloids in liquid and gaseous phases, is emphasized within this concise text.

Providing a good starting survey of the field, this book emphasizes the importance of inorganic chemistry in biological systems. The basic background of the interactions of atoms, molecules and especially metal ions, with biomolecules covers about a quarter of the book. The remainder discusses the biologically important elements, and their occurrence and functions in biomaterials - these are illustrated by certain roles in humans, fishes, beetles, and plants and in varied human diseases,such as cystic fibrosis methemoglobemia, and thalassemia. This upper level undergraduate textbook for students of chemistry and biology is the only current short book covering, briefly, most areas of bioinorganic chemistry.
