Investigation of Organic Reactions and Their Mechanisms by Howard Maskill

Book Description

A range of alternative mechanisms can usually be postulated for most organic chemical reactions, and identification of the most likely requires detailed investigation. Investigation of Organic Reactions and their Mechanisms will serve as a guide for the trained chemist who needs to characterise an organic chemical reaction and investigate its mechanism, but who is not an expert in physical organic chemistry. Such an investigation will lead to an understanding of which bonds are broken, which are made, and the order in which these processes happen. This information and knowledge of the associated kinetic and thermodynamic parameters are central to the development of safe, efficient, and profitable industrial chemical processes, and to extending the synthetic utility of new chemical reactions in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, and academic environments. Written as a coherent account of the principal methods currently used in mechanistic investigations, at a level accessible to academic researchers and graduate chemists in industry, the book is highly practical in approach. The contributing authors, an international group of expert practitioners of the techniques covered, illustrate their contributions by examples from their own research and from the relevant wider chemical literature. The book covers basic aspects such as product analysis, kinetics, catalysis, and investigation of reactive intermediates. It also includes material on significant recent developments, e.g. computational chemistry, calorimetry, and electrochemistry, in addition to topics of high current industrial relevance, e.g. reactions in multiphase systems, and synthetically useful reactions involving free radicals and catalysis by organometallic compounds.

Books By Author Howard Maskill

Organic Chemistry by Howard Maskill Organic Chemistry, Paperback (November 2013)

Organic Chemistry: A mechanistic approach combines a focus on core topics and themes with a mechanistic approach to the explanation of the reactions it describes, making it ideal for those looking for a solid understanding of the central themes of organic chemistry.

Structure and Reactivity in Organic Chemistry by Howard Maskill Structure and Reactivity in Organic Chemistry, Paperback (October 1999)

This title covers areas of mechanistic and physical organic chemistry at advanced undergraduate level in a non-mathematical way. The topics included (e.g. kinetics and mechanism, catalysis, and isotope effects) are essential in any modern chemistry degree. The book is up to date and includes many examples from all areas of organic chemistry.

Mechanisms of Organic Reactions by Howard Maskill Mechanisms of Organic Reactions, Paperback (August 1996)

This title begins with the modern concepts of organic chemical reactivity, then presents an up-to-date account of the mechanisms of major reactions of simple organic compounds. Each chapter leads the student from the experimental evidence to the mechanistic deductions, and ends with problems for students to work through, and a short bibliography.
