Where to find the solutions to Michael Smith Organic Synthesis 3rd edition? In the book it is written that there is a free solution manual online but I cannot find it.

Information on Author Home (uconn.edu)
The solutions manual is online as a pdf file for each chapter. It wil be made available upon request to those who order the book.

On drug synthesis search for books of Daniel Lednicer and Jie Jack Li.

need the basics in a simple form.

Typically that is not what a graduate level book is. Maybe undergraduate level is what you are looking for? Maybe Clayden for general organic chemistry and Graham Partick's "Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry"?
My research: Google Scholar and Researchgate

please i need books or a book for 3D QSAR, design of peptidomimetics, protein homology modelling, and the transition from agonists to antagonists.

If by "Clayden's" book you mean this one http://www.amazon.com/Organic-Chemistry-Jonathan-Clayden/dp/0199270295/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387184497&sr=8-1&keywords=clayden+organic+chemistry

Then this is the one I would recommend to anyone wishing to further their knowledge of Organis chemistry

This book would be very challenging for someone without prior knowledge of organic chemistry or at least a gentler introduction to the topics..

Interesting - what would you recommend in place?

Can anyone recomend a good book on stereoselective synthesis? Im looking for something tha explains the real basics but covers the depth as well.
Im getting the oxford primer and we have Atkinson, R.S. Stereoselective Synthesis. John Wiley & Sons, New York, USA, 1995. as a recomended one but it is 20 years old so Im bit worried that its sligtly outdated.

Depends what you're looking for, but Classics in Stereoselective Synthesis is a good one:

Thanks. I got asymetric synthesis by Garry Procter and it seems great for me. I will look into the classics when I get more time

Haven't seen any book nearly as good as Klein's textbook for an undergraduate Organic Chemistry class, not just in this subject but anywhere else. Clayden's better for theories but I don't get the point of that if you don't get to develop skills and learn how to apply them.

Hi
I have seen now many professors are using Klein book and I am getting every second student requesting to use this book in tutoring class.I also really liked the book as it covers from very basics and advance concepts very nicely with plenty of solved examples.

What book to learn from after first year organic chemistry?
« Reply #282 on: September 13, 2017, 12:20:05 PM »
So I am about to finish the year of sophomore Organic Chemistry (at the level of Klein/Janice Smith). I'd like to move on to more complicated treatments of the subject. What is the next book that will be accessible to me? Can I dive right into Carey/Sundberg? Or should I go through an intermediate text, like, say Stowell (Fabirkiewicz)?

Thanks

Where do I start!?
« Reply #283 on: December 11, 2017, 10:13:59 AM »
Hey, im really interested in organic chemistry and i would really like to learn the basics up to synthesis. Today I learned about functional groups, how they're defined and how they worked. However I dont know where to go from here, ive googled the steps up to learning synthesis and couldnt find anything, could somebody tell me what i need to learn in order to get up to learning synthesis, currently i only have basic knowledge of chemistry, I got a B in high school chemistry and it is a really interesting and enjoyable subject that id like to learn and possibly get a degree in. Thanks for taking your time to read this,

Drew.

books are a good way to learn, but like with many things take small steps, don't run before you can walk.

learning curly arrows and simple reactions. also it's important to understand nucleophillicity and electrophillicity which require an understanding of electrons and electronegativity.
