  • Focuses on core knowledge and provides key concepts, facts and materials regarding organic reactions and their mechanisms.
  • Enables the reader to grasp and understand the subject quickly and easily.
  • Several important concepts and cross-referencing in this book is put in boxes. This provides a unifying treatment.
  • Contains clear and simple pictures of the molecules with proper captions to track the fate of atoms and groups  during  reactions.
  • The book incorporates self-assessment problems which are scattered  throughout  the text and at the end of each chapter. Detailed answers to problems have been added.
  • Further reading list to guide readers for more detailed coverage, if required.


The book is designed to provide a comprehensive coverage in the area of organic reactions mechanism for chemistry major/graduate students. The practice of medicine now-a-days increasingly demands the knowledge of the behaviour of molecules. Therefore, the biologist of tomorrow will have to be more of an organic chemist.  The book is thus aimed at pharmacologists, medical chemists and biochemists as well.
