Description of The Invisible World

Knowledge of organic chemistry continues to move ahead on many fronts. New journals continue to appear and older ones increase in frequency of publication and/or in number of papers published. Advanced Organic Chemistry fourth edition of Advanced Organic Chemistry has been thoroughly revised to reflect this growth. Every topic retained from the third edition has been brought up to date. Changes, ranging from minor to extensive, have been made on virtually every page of the third edition. More than 5000 references have been added. However, no changes were made in the organization: The structure of the fourth edition is essentially the same as that of the second and the third. Like the first three editions, the fourth is intended to be a textbook for a course in advanced organic chemistry taken by students who have had the standard undergraduate organic and physical chemistry courses.
I have attempted to give equal weight to the three fundamental aspects of the study of organic chemistry: reactions, mechanisms, and structure. A student who has completed a course based on Advanced Organic Chemistry book should be able to approach the literature directly, with a sound knowledge of modern basic organic chemistry. I have treated lightly or not at all the major special areas of organic chemistry: terpenes, carbohydrates, proteins, polymerization and electrochemical reactions, steroids, etc. It is my opinion that these topics are best approached after the first year of graduate study, when the fundamentals have been mastered, either in advanced courses, or directly, by consulting the many excellent books and review articles available on these subjects.
