This new and innovative text helps students develop a deeper understanding of organic chemistry It treats the subject as a coherent whole, complete with numerous logical connections, consequences, and an underlying structure and language Employing an approach based on mechanism and reaction type, the book empasizes understanding ideas rather than merely memorizing factThis new and innovative text helps students develop a deeper understanding of organic chemistry It treats the subject as a coherent whole, complete with numerous logical connections, consequences, and an underlying structure and language Employing an approach based on mechanism and reaction type, the book empasizes understanding ideas rather than merely memorizing facts It shows students how to realistically draw molecules and mechanisms to reveal the fundamental chemistry Using a fresh, accessible writing style as well as examples from everyday life, the authors explain the basics of organic chemistry carefully and thoroughly A special focus on mechanism, orbitals, and stereochemistry helps students gain a solid comprehension of important factors common to all reactions The book s innovative design enhances clarity and instruction with boxes that separate summary information and other material from the main text a variety of colors that draw attention to items such as atoms, molecules, and orbitals and figures that are drawn in red with significant parts emphasized in black Early chapters feature carbonyl group reactions, and later chapters systematically develop the chemistry through discussions of spectroscopy, stereochemistry, and chemical reactions Each chapter opens with a Connections box, divided into three columns Building on Details material from previous chapters that relate to the current chapter Arriving at Provides a guide to the content of the chapter Looking forward to Previews later chapters, which develop and expand the current material

If you can only read one book on organic chemistry this yearIn all seriousness, it is a very good learning aid for undergraduate chemists. I'd go ahead and describe it as essential, if your professors haven't already. It describes mechanisms simply (and in colour!) and probably describes every reaction that ever existed. I feel a bit sorry for Greeves, Warren and Wothers, as this book often gets described as "Clayden".
This is the book to get, if you don't like organic chemistry. It makes it actually interesting--it's an engaging read, there is plenty of related background information, and it goes quite a bit further in content and complexity than other books that teach basic organic chemistry. It's not as conservative in layout as most other books I have worked with (or tried to work with) and I usually found the things I was looking for, if they were to be found in the book. It's also just very pretty to loo [...]
It's so funny to read the silly things people write on this site as "reviews" for the legendary Clayden's book. A definitely unhesitating 5-star.
I tried to use this thorough book as a personal "reader" but instead it has had to end up on my reference shelf due to its sheer depth (and mass!)It has very useful side notes throughout and the several authors write in an accessible language. 5 stars for its sheer depth and detail.
Basically I'm still reading this book one day before my exams. Excellent introduction to organic chemistry - I'm keeping the book despite leaving chemistry for the moment.
Few joys in life are greater than owning a beautiful, well-done textbook. I had felt so happy holding this book in my hands and flipping through it leisurely while at a second hand store that I bought it immediately for 50$. Not a bad way to spend my lunch money, I suppose. I think good textbooks represent two things -- the promise of the joy of learning, and the feeling that one is being tutored straight from the hearts and minds of the authors, whether this comes through in the conceptual clar [...]
Personally did not enjoy this book a lot and that was not due to the fact I had to learn from it! ;) This books covers a lot on organic chemistry and basic knowledge about (organic) chemistry is required. What threw me off was the fact that in most chapters a lot of different reactions are covered to explain the basics. Though learning different reactions is quite useful, it didn't quite work for me to explain the basics of reactions. It sometimes made it dreadful to read.
This has become a go to for anything to do with general organic chemistry and was the top book on all the organic course reading lists at uni. The clarity of the explanations is brilliant and is wonderfully colour coded.
It'a extraordinary textbook for both a green hand or a senior chemist with a systematic and illustrated content.
Best organic Chemistry book for beginners
This is a fairly good book for learning about Organic Chemistry. I did however find it a bit hard to read and I had a hard time getting used to the way the chapters were set up, in groups of similar reaktions in sted of by funktionel groups.But using it as much as I have in the exam-period I have become better friends with it. So I would propably give it 3 ½ stars if I could.
This is the book I studied in the first semester in college. I had to memorize it, and know it's contents like I know my name because they're the basics!The contents weren't really difficult but the professor was a pain in the butt and she made the course hell for us! I don't hate this book, it's really good, but I also don't love it because it reminds me of that professor.
Basically I'm still reading this book. I am on the final pages. It has educated me into the introduction of organic chemistry. I had put down a while back do to not having to finish it then.
Nothing to say about a classic
bloody book does not know how to read this app just shows book info
i am interesting in organic chemistry
i want read this book 5 years back i read it was good and given theoretical explanation
