I would pitty anyone who had to learn organic synthesis from that book.
Why? This if wonderfull book! I really like it. But it has some drawbacks, such as little illustrative and factical material (most of reactions are given in common schemes).
I think, that the best organic chemistry books - is articles!!!(Especially Chemical Reviews and many others)
I from Russia, and we have fine OC book - Reutov, Kurtz, Butin - "Organic chemistry"/ If anybody wants this book, I may shared with him by any fileshared system! Good-bye!
I'm from Russia. Sorry my bad English, please!

I am a second year chemistry undergraduate in the UK and I highly recommend Organic Chemistry by Clayden, Greeves, Warren and Wothers.

I'm currently doing Chemistry in GCE A Levels and in my second and last year of studying in a Junior College (I'm 17 turning 18 next year), and would like a good chemistry book to help me through Organic Chemistry. Any suggestions?

That reminds me.  This book by Kurti and Czako (two grad students, believe it or not) is probably the best name reactions book out there.  It's chock full of references (both the orginals and subsequent applications) and lots of examples and complete mechanisms.  Really a fantastic resource.



You saved me from having to post this.  I second the recommendation of this book!


 Grossman's book on mechanisms is also very good:
http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Reasonable-Organic-Reaction-Mechanisms/dp/0387954686/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1200548069&sr=8-1

For NMR:  http://www.amazon.com/Basic-One-Two-Dimensional-NMR-Spectroscopy/dp/3527312331/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1200548103&sr=1-3




I'd rather be in the lab!

I would recommend Organic Chemistry by Paula Yurkanis Bruice.  She is an extraordinary author and the mechanisms are easy to understand, examples are great and the solutions manual is very helpful.  The text includes multiple tables of information that summarize rules and memory keys throughout the chapters.  These were helpful in learning the material.

Frontier Orbitals and Organic Chemistry by Ian Fleming gave me an excellent introduction to Frontier Orbtials in Organic Chemistry...i especially liked the cycloadditiona and sigmatropic rearrangement sections

Hi,
I am looking for a comprehensive reference showing many mechanisms of chemical reaction.

I currently have 'Introduction to Organic Chemistry' by William Brown and Thomas Poon.
Eventhough the book's got some pretty good mechanisms, I am looking for a good reference to explain more advance and more complex chemical reactions.

I am doing a medicinal chemistry subject, which is pretty advanced.

Thanks for any suggestion.

I'm looking for a book i used back in year 2. Its an organic chemistry work book with synthesis practice questions (around half a page). The answer would directly follow it on the next part of the page. I found it extremely useful for learning and want to find it again.

Anyone have any ideas?

its a really old book.. maybe by warren but i couldn't find it again under that name
