This book describes the principles that govern chemical reactivity, and shows how these principles can be used to make predictions about the mechanisms and outcomes of chemical reactions. Molecular orbital theory is used to provide up-to-date explanations of chemical reactivity, in an entirely nonmathematical approach suited to organic chemists. A valuable section explains the use of curly arrows, vital for describing reaction mechanisms. An entire chapter is devoted to exploring the thought processes involved in predicting the mechanisms of unfamiliar reactions. Each chapter is followed by a summary of the important points and a selection of problems to help the reader make sure that the material in that chapter has been assimilated. The book concludes with a comprehensive glossary of technical terms. This text will be of interest to first- and second-year chemistry undergraduates studying organic chemistry.

'This book is a delight, fulfilling an important need and covering all the mechanistic requirements of first- and second-year organic chemistry. I recommend it to students and teachers alike.' Alan Dronsfield, Education in Chemistry '... this is a useful book which should help students understand the basis of organic reaction mechanisms'. Jim Hanson, Chemistry in Britain 'What you need if you are to find your way through the organic chemistry maze is and understanding of how and why reactions occur. And Adam Jacobs, in Understanding Organic Reaction Mechanisms, brings this within your grasp by presenting the principles that make sense of a complex subject.' Peter Budd, New Scientist 'This book is a delight, fulfilling an important need and covering all the mechanistic requirements of first- and second-year organic chemistry. I recommend it to students and teachers alike.' Alan Dronsfield, Education in Chemistry ' ... can be recommended unreservedly ... The text impresses one immediately by its special combination of succinctness, pragmatism, and humor'. Henning Hopf, Angewandte Chemie
