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.

Principles and Applications of Stereochemistry

A thorough understanding of stereochemistry is essential for the comprehension of almost all aspects of modern organic chemistry. It is also of great significance in many biochemical and medicinal disciplines, since the stereoisomers of a compound can have dramatically different biological properties. This text explains how the different properties of stereoisomers of a compound arise, and what processes can be used to prepare and analyze stereoisomerically pure compounds. It also presents prominent coverage of the stereochemistry of inorganic and organometallic compounds, which is likely to increase in importance, as these compounds are used as symmetric catalysts in asymmetric synthesis. Modern stereochemical terminology is used throughout, although reference is also made to older terms which are still widely used. A set of problems at the end of each chapter aims to further the reader's understanding of how the content can be applied. The book is designed mainly as a textbook for undergraduate students and as a reference source for more advanced levels, but is also intended for academic and professional organic chemists.

The development of university organic chemistry curricula and thetrend towards modularisation of chemistry courses has driven theneed for smaller, highly focussed and accessible organic chemistrytextbooks, which complement the very detailed “standardtexts”, to guide students through the key principles of thesubject. This concise and accessible book provides organic chemistrynotes for students studying chemistry and related courses atundergraduate level, covering core organic chemistry in a formatideal for learning and rapid revision. The material is organised sothat fundamental concepts are introduced early, then built on toprovide an overview of the essentials of functional group chemistryand reactivity, leading the student to a solid understanding of thebasics of organic chemistry. Graphical presentation of informationis central to the book, to facilitate the rapid assimilation,understanding and recall of critical concepts, facts anddefinitions. Students wanting a comprehensive and accessible overview oforganic chemistry to build the necessary foundations for a moredetailed study will find this book an ideal source of theinformation they require. In addition, the structured presentation,highly graphical nature of the text and practice problems withoutline answers will provide an invaluable framework and aid torevision for students preparing for examinations.

Keynotes in Organic Chemistry is also a handy desk reference for advanced students, postgraduates and researchers. For this second edition the text has been completely revised and updated. Colour has been introduced to clarify aspects of reaction mechanisms, and new margin notes to emphasise the links between different topics. The number of problems have been doubled to approximately 100, and includes spectra interpretation problems. Each chapter now starts with diagrams to illustrate the key points, and ends with a list of key reactions and a worked example.

Organosulfur Chemistry

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.

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.

It has been recognised for many years that power ultrasound has great potential for uses in a wide variety of processes in the chemical and allied industries. Reported applications include cleaning, sterilisation, flotation, drying, degassing, defoaming, soldering, plastic welding, drilling, filtration, homogenisation, emulsification, dissolution, deaggregation of powder, biological cell disruption, extraction, crystallisation and, more recently, as a stimulus for chemical reactions. With the increasing use of power ultrasound in chemistry comes the need for specialist text books covering this emerging discipline. This book is suitable for chemists and chemical engineers at all levels who wish to gain a rapid insight into what is becoming a standard method in the chemical laboratory. It is designed to answer the following questions: What is sonochemistry? Why is it important? What systems are affected by sonochemistry? What are the major applications of this technique? What types of ultrasonic equipment are available? How do the different types of equipment compare? How is the equipment best configured for chemical applications? What parameters can be changed to optimise sonochemical results? What equipment is available for the scale-up of sonochemistry?
