Synopsis:
Acclaimed for its clarity and precision, Wade’s Organic Chemistry maintains scientific rigor while engaging students at all levels. Wade presents a logical, systematic approach to understanding the principles of organic reactivity and the mechanisms of organic reactions. This approach helps students develop the problem-solving strategies and the scientific intuition they will apply throughout the course and in their future scientific work.

The Eighth Edition provides enhanced and proven features in every chapter, including new Chapter Goals, Essential Problem-Solving Skills and Hints that encourage both majors and non-majors to think critically and avoid taking “short cuts” to solve problems. Mechanism Boxes and Key Mechanism Boxes strengthen student understanding of Organic Chemistry as a whole while contemporary applications reinforce the relevance of this science to the real world.

Synopsis:
Designed to provide a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to organic process research and development in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical, and agricultural chemical industries, this book describes the steps taken, following synthesis and evaluation, to bring key compounds to market in a cost-effective manner. It describes hands-on, step-by-step, approaches to solving process development problems, including route, reagent, and solvent selection; optimising catalytic reactions; chiral syntheses; and “green chemistry.”

Second Edition highlights: . Reflects the current thinking in chemical process R&D for small molecules . Retains similar structure and orientation to the first edition. . Contains approx. 85% new material . Primarily new examples (work-up and prospective considerations for pilot plant and manufacturing scale-up) . Some new/expanded topics (e.g. green chemistry, genotoxins, enzymatic processes) . Replaces the first edition, although the first edition contains useful older examples that readers may refer to.
