Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sixth Edition of a classic in organic chemistry continues its tradition of excellence

Now in its sixth edition, March's Advanced Organic Chemistry remains the gold standard in organic chemistry. Throughout its six editions, students and chemists from around the world have relied on it as an essential resource for planning and executing synthetic reactions.

The Sixth Edition brings the text completely current with the most recent organic reactions. In addition, the references have been updated to enable readers to find the latest primary and review literature with ease.

Each successive edition of March's continues to garner international praise. Here is what one reviewer said of the Fifth Edition:

"The book remains a tremendous value for the money . . . more pages per buck than most other texts . . . so it will remain a firm favorite as a general organic text and an easy-to-use one-volume reference . . . it will undoubtedly appear in all organic chemistry libraries and probably on many chemists' personal bookshelves too."

—Organic Process Research &Development

The Sixth Edition carries on the tradition of excellence with such new features as:

  • More than 25,000 references to the literature to facilitate further research
  • Revised mechanisms, where required, that explain concepts in clear modern terms
  • Revisions and updates to each chapter to bring them all fully up to date with the latest reactions and discoveries
  • A revised Appendix B to facilitate correlating chapter sections with synthetic transformations

Book News Annotation:

This text on advanced organic chemistry is meant for graduate students who have had the standard undergraduate organic and physical chemistry courses. Smith (chemistry, U. of Connecticut) and the late March, who was professor of chemistry at Adelphi U., concentrate on reactions, mechanisms, and structures, organized by reaction types. Some areas are not covered, such as terpenes, carbohydrates, proteins, and combinatorial chemistry. This edition includes revised mechanisms that explain concepts in modern terms, updated chapters that contain the most recent reaction information, new references, and expanded coverage of metal-catalyzed coupling reactions, metathesis, and newly developed named reactions. The book contains comprehensive subject and author indexes. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

MICHAEL B. SMITH, PhD, is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Connecticut. His current research interests include studies towards the total synthesis of pancratistatin and related phenanthridone alkaloids; synthesis and structural verification of bioactive bacterial ceramides; the study of reactions associated with or facilitated by conducting polymers; and, the synthesis of dye-conjugates to target cancerous tumors.

Jerry March, PhD, (deceased) was a professor in the Department of Chemistry at Adelphi University, Garden City, New York.
