During the past fifty years, organic chemistry has grown into a very mature and well-disciplined science. As such, introductory organic chemistry courses have been obliged to present the subject in a highly concentrated format covering literally hundreds of name reactions. Consequently, the route taken by many authors of organic chemistry textbooks has been to present the subject by listing multitudes of similar name reactions as a device to illustrate the fundamental mechanisms and reaction types relevant to organic chemistry. Psychologically, this induces the student to believe that memorization of this multitude of chemical reactions is the key to success in organic chemistry. This…
