Item description for Name Reactions: A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms by Jie Jack Li...
The second edition includes: 16 additional name reactions; the references are updated and expanded; a better index; short descriptions for most of the name reactions are added; typographical and structural errors are corrected.
Different from other books on name reactions in organic chemistry, Name Reactions, A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms focuses on their mechanisms. It covers over 300 classical as well as contemporary name reactions. Each reaction is delineated by its detailed step-by-step, electron-pushing mechanism, supplemented with the original and the latest references, especially review articles. Thus, it is not only an indispensable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students for their learning and exams, but also a good reference book for all chemists interested in name reactions.

Name Reactions: A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms Dec 17, 2007
i received the book in good condition. The book is very valuable for any org. chemist,be it Acadamic or Industrial.we have the old edition also. I use it to train the youngsters. worth to buy.
Awesome book May 10, 2007
This book is nice for writing the basics of mechanism. There are some other books available in market. But I will recommend this book because they are short and concise. This third edition is more or less similar to second edition.
best name reactions book Mar 23, 2006
this book is a really great resource for organic chemists. it has all the main name reactions in alphabetical order, and does a good job showing not only the overall reaction, but also the step-by-step mechanism as well. it also has references listed for each reaction, for further clarification. i recommend it for any organic chemist as part of their library.
The named reactions bible Aug 16, 2005
This book is fantastic! It has a complete set of every important named reaction with its respective mechanism and literature references. The simple layout makes this book very user friendly. The mechanisms are easy to follow and the references are very useful making this book excellent for use at any level from undergraduate to graduate and beyond. This book is a definite must have for anyone studying advanced organic chemistry, as it is the named reactions bible.
not bad if you can't write a mechanism... Aug 6, 2005
Basically, all this book does is draw mechanisms for a whole bunch of name reactions. It doesn't really tell you all that much and only gives one example (for which the mechanism is drawn out)or each. Definately not recomended if you know how to push arrows and write a mechanism. Not at all what I was expecting.
