Advanced Organic Chemistry Summary

Advanced Organic Chemistry: Part A: Structure and Mechanisms 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 A covers fundamental structural topics and basic mechanistic types. It can stand-alone; together, with Part B: Reaction and Synthesis, the two volumes provide a comprehensive foundation for the study in organic chemistry. Companion websites provide digital models for study of structure, reaction and selectivity for students and exercise solutions for instructors.

Advanced Organic Chemistry Reviews

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

Carey and Sundberg had written the most detailed and briliant account in the subject of organic chemistry. ... The book provides an abundance of reaction examples organized in schemes. It makes studying very effective and helpful. ... Advanced undergraduates and graduate students will welcome this new edition and the depth of materials covered. (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, May, 2014)

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).
