The primary guiding and unifying
principle of the book is the structural theory in its broadest sense. This one
theory underlies the whole of organic chemistry; its different aspects are
discussed in the various chapters.
note focuses on general methods and strategies for the synthesis of complex
organic molecules. Emphasis is on strategies for stereoselective synthesis,
including stereocontrolled synthesis of complex acyclic compounds.
This note explains the following
topics: Fundamental stereochemical concepts, Synthetic strategy and principles
for stereoselective in particular enantioselective, chemical transformations,
Transition metal catalysis, Applications of frontier orbital theory,
Retrosynthetic analysisand Advanced organic synthesis.
This lecture note is an introduction to organic chemistry,
focusing primarily on the basic principles to understand the structure and
reactivity of organic molecules. Major topics covered are: Resonance, Molecular
Orbital Theory, Hybridization, Cycloalkanes, Cyclohexane, Stereochemistry, Free
Radical Reactions, Structure and Synthesis of Alkenes.
