Advanced Organic Chemistry Summary

Advanced Organic Chemistry: Part B: Reaction and Synthesis by Francis A. Carey

The two-part, fifth edition of Advanced Organic Chemistry has been substantially revised and reorganized for greater clarity. The material has been updated to reflect advances in the field since the previous edition, especially in computational chemistry. Part B describes the most general and useful synthetic reactions, organized on the basis of reaction type. It can stand-alone; together, with Part A: Structure and Mechanisms, the two volumes provide a comprehensive foundation for the study in organic chemistry. Companion websites provide digital models for students and exercise solutions for instructors.

Advanced Organic Chemistry Reviews

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

"Advanced Organic Chemistry ... the well-known textbook for graduate students - has now appeared in a 5th edition. ... Carey & Sundberg will be interesting to all students who seek a detailed understanding of organic chemistry, and who wish to refresh and embellish their existing knowledge. On the strength of the scope and quality of the explanations, this pair of texts is recommended for use as the resource of first resort for specific research questions in one's later career." (www.organische-chemie.ch, January, 2008)

About Francis A. Carey

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (Ph.D. 1963). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry. With his students, Professor Carey has published over forty research papers in synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry.
Professor Sundberg is primarily engaged in teaching and chemical education. Along with Francis A. Carey he is the author of "Advanced Organic Chemistry. Professor Sundberg is also interested in synthetic methodology in heterocyclic chemistry and is the author of "Indoles" in the Best Synthetic Methods Series (Academic Press, 1996).
