Two Hundred Exercises in Mechanistic Organic Chemistry

This book will strengthen the knowledge of mechanistic organic chemistry for organic chemists who have completed a bachelor’s degree and want to start researching in a laboratory or working in a chemical company.

Hardly ever does an organic synthesis advance according to plan. Diligently designed synthetic schemes stumble upon the laboratory reality of meagre yields, side reactions, and unwanted products. To fight against that we have a magnificent intellectual tool: reaction mechanisms.

In the course of an undergraduate degree, the student assimilates an assortment of unadorned reaction mechanisms, when in professional practice she/he needs to envision convoluted mechanisms resulting from the sequential operation of simple steps. The student here is like the novice chess player who knows how to move the pieces, but not how to play the game. This book facilitates that learning in mechanistic organic chemistry, a fundamental apprenticeship for the preparation of new drugs that save millions of lives.

Gabriel Tojo Suárez is a Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, and founder of four chemical companies. His experience in teaching and research at the university (along with publications in the best chemical journals) adds to his experience in Galchimia, SA, a company that he founded with colleagues and former students, with laboratories in Santiago, Madrid and Barcelona, and which is dedicated to preparing drug candidates for pharmaceutical companies. This allows him to identify the training needs of graduates who start their professional careers at university and business.
