Vogel's Textbook of Practical Organic Chemistry Fifth Edition
Description of Vogel's Textbook of Practical Organic ChemistryThis edition retains the comprehensive, reference-text character, updated, with the introduction of new reagents and techniques as well as the development of a philosophy of organic synthesis, integrating mechanistic theory with the strategy and methodology of synthesis. Chapters deal with experimental techniques, and spectroscopic methods, as well as specific aliphatic, aromatic, alicyclic, heterocyclic, and organic compounds.
It described procedures for the synthesis of organic compounds with the underlying philosophy behind the reactions complete with the mechanism. Also described procedures are easy to follow. It also includes characterization of compounds using both chemical and spectroscopic methods thus covering the whole spectrum of practical organic chemistry. Almost all the other information to be required by an organic synthetic chemist in the laboratory is also included.
It considered be a one-volume reference text which is of value to practicing organic chemists throughout their undergraduate, postgraduate and subsequent careers.
