Basic principles of organic chemistry

  title={Basic principles of organic chemistry},
  author={John D. Roberts and Marjorie C. Caserio},
PREFACE: No period in the history of organic chemistry has been as dynamic and productive of research accomplishment as the twelve years between the completion of the first and present editions of this textbook. New reagents, new reactions, and extraordinary syntheses have been manifold. New techniques and new instruments for analysis and determination of structures, improved methods for theoretical calculations, as well as new junctures with physical, inorganic, and biochemistry, have made… Expand
A perspective distilled from seventy years of research.
Personal mentoring has been the beneficiary of personal mentoring which has been very crucial to my success in research and is an important theme in what follows. Expand
Dynamics of theory change in chemistry: Part 2. Benzene and molecular orbitals, 1945–1980
Abstract In my previous article on the benzene problem, I described how Pauling's valence bond (resonance) theory, sometimes regarded as a modernized version of Kekule's oscillation hypothesis, cameExpand
New developments in the use of graphite lamellar compounds as reagents in organic synthesis
Abstract In all the cases investigated, the lamellar compound was used as a reagent, in stoichiometric quantities rather than in catalytic proportions. The advantages associated with these reagentsExpand
Progress in Practice: Organic Chemistry in the Introductory Course II. The Advantages of Physical Organic Chemistry
pathways. he application of physical chemistry to problems in understanding the reactivity of organic substances is one of the significant events in the development of main group molecular chemistry.Expand
Cluster-stabilized cations: synthesis, structures, molecular dynamics and reactivity
Tetrahedral clusters possessing two or three organometallic vertices, such as Co(CO)3 or CpMo(CO)2, provide enormously enhanced stability to neighboring cationic centers. The factors controlling theExpand
Syntheses of Some Cyclopropenes and a Study of the ir Mode of Rearrangement Using Homogeneous Catalysts
Attempts to synthesize several cyclopropene derivatives are described. The experimental parameters and the optimum reaction conditions are discussed in detail as are the structure and properties ofExpand
Ion Exchange Derivatives of Cellulose.
A new class of cellulose derivatives, known as sulfonyl carba­ mates, has been developed in this research. These derivatives are formed by reacting pure untreated cellulose with sulfonyl isocyanatesExpand
Some Aspects of the Photochemistry of Benzene
Three methods of measuring absolute gas‐phase‐emission yields from benzene are described. Two of the three proved to have large possible errors due to scattered light. One was used to give a value ofExpand
Kinetic Isotope Effects in Free Radical Chemistry.
Kinetic isotope effects for hydrogen atom abstraction from mercaptans by free radical species have been investigated. A variety of structurally different radicals have been generated by thermolytic,Expand
Introduction and General Aspects
The development in organoselenium chemistry has been expanding rapidly over the last several years. The different reactivity of selenium-containing compounds in contrast to the sulfur analogs has ledExpand
