Re: Where do I start!?

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.

A good book to go through not all of it but some chapters is Organic Chemistry by Jonathan Clayden, its seen as the gold standards for undergraduate students, similar to the atkins series for physical and inorganic chemistry.

Genuinely curious; I started my undergraduate degree with Louden's Organic Chemistry and preferred the explanations and felt the readability was better than Clayden. Does anyone agree?

Practical organic synthesis textbook with preparation procedures

What is the best textbook that contains reliable preparation procedures of different organic compounds? I have Practical Organic Chemistry by Vogel, but all the procedures are written for extremely large scale reactions.

Orgsyn might be a place to look. It's a website/journal, not a textbook though.

I would like to have a reference with chapters divided by the type of transformation.

I like Jie Jack Li's 'Modern Organic Synthesis in the Laboratory'

https://global.oup.com/ushe/product/modern-organic-synthesis-in-the-laboratory-9780195187991?cc=us&lang=en&

Really handy for standard transformations where searching scifinder finds a million hits.

One book that I often look through is Tietze and Eicher's Reactions and Syntheses.
