Organic Chemistry

Jonathan Clayden, Nick Geeves, Stuart Warren
Paperback, 1508 Pages
First Edition, 20 Juli 2000
ISBN: 0-198-50346-6
Oxford University Press


A first and second year undergraduate organic chemistry textbook, specifically geared to British and European courses and courses offered in better schools in North America. The emphasis is on clarity and understanding, with very careful explanations of difficult concepts, many examples related to everyday life, and a fresh and student-friendly writing style.
Editorial Review
If there is a text book for organic chemistry, which I can recommend without restriction, then it is "Organic Chemistry" from the authors Clayden/Greeves/Warren/Wolters. There are several reasons for this:

The book accompanies the beginner in organic chemistry from the structure of the molecules, over NMR up to the topics for advanced, like heterocycles and asymmetrical synthesis. A typical arrangement of functional groups as seen in older text books does not occur. Thus, rather mechanisms and concepts of organic chemistry with rising difficulties are explained. Therefore it can be seen , that a certain mechanism (e.g. the addition to a carbonyl group) can be applied to different functional groups.

A large deficiency of comparable books are the given schemes, which mostly contain "R groups". In this regard, "Clayden" is very practice-related. Thus, in the chapter "acidity, basicity and pKa", the base instability of the Fmoc protective group is explained . Examples like the synthesis of the antibiotic ofloxacin are skillfully inserted later.

As very successful I call the marginal notes. Thus a mechanism is explained again in another kind, or you receive hints, referring to earlier or later chapters, where you can find more information about the topic. Marginal notes contain remarks like "The Favorskii mechanism want help you understand the Ramberg-Baecklund reaction... ". The book doesn´t lead you in temptation of stubborn memorization, but does promote interlaced thinking.

Interesting additions are, e.g. chapters about main group chemistry (S, B, Si...), "Organometallic Chemistry" and "The Chemistry of Life". Therefore the book is not only recommendable for lectures in organic chemistry, but also as a companion in biochemistry lectures.

Who "Clayden" possesses, has in lectures where alcohols, amines, carbonic acids and amides are strictly treated separately from each other, probably more or less to keep leafing back and forth and back again. However, this book has, compared with usual text books, to offer some pluses.

Beyond that, I recommend lecturers the acquisition of an "inspection copy". You should use this offer,
to promote organic knowledge in another way and to encourage interlaced thinking.
