Description:

This book, which has become the standard text for graduate students, provides the basis for deeper understanding of the structure of organic compounds and the mechanisms of organic reactions. In this revised volume, the topics of aromaticity and the reactions of aromatic compounds have been divided into two chapters. The chapter on free radical reactions has been reworked to emphasize the distinctive mechanistic and kinetic aspects of these reactions. Part A of this revised, two-volume text provides the reader with a basis for a clearer understanding of the structures of organic compounds and the mechanisms of organic reactions. Carey and Sundberg treat the topics of aromaticity and the reactions of aromatic compounds in two separate chapters and have extensively reworked the chapter on free radical reactions to emphasize their distinctive mechanistic and kinetic aspects.

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. In addition to this text, he is coauthor (with Robert C. Atkins) of Organic Chemistry: A Brief Course and (with Richard J. Sundberg) of Advanced Organic Chemistry, a two-volume treatment designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. He was a member of the Committee of Examiners of The Graduate Record Examination in Chemistry from 1993-2000. Frank and his wife Jill, who is a teacher/director of a preschool and a church organist, are the parents of Andy, Bob, and Bill and the grandparents of Riyad and Ava.
