Book Description

27 Aug 1992 0198556748 978-0198556749
All the basic principles of this important topic are clearly presented here in an account which takes as examples many compounds of industrial and biological significance. Consideration is given to the structure, reactions, and properties of benzene and classes of aromatic compounds derived from it, and topics such as thermodynamic versus kinetic control and pericyclic reactions are introduced. The text also covers polycyclic arenes and the small and large ring systems which are embraced by the wider definition of aromaticity.

Format:Paperback
The chemistry of aromatic compounds is part of many aspects of chemistry and other similar subjects. As such the chemistry of benzene and its related compounds is an integral part of all undergraduate chemistry courses.
This primer covers the vast majority of information needed for a thorough understanding of aromatic chemistry in a clear and readable fashion. The book gives careful consideration to bonding, the concept of aromaticity (Huckel's rule), the major reactions undergone by aromatic compounds along with the orientation of substituents in aromatic reactions, modern synthetic methods, such as the use of organometallic reagents, and examples of other arenes.
Unfortunately, however, there are certain errors in the text that I feel make if difficult to follow. For instance, equation 3.8 on p. 15 is the same as equation 3.9 on p. 16; and SN2 is designated as substitution, nucleophilic unimolecular on p. 27 (above equation 5.2) instead of the correct substitution nucleophilic bimolecular. Furthermore, the text would be improved by the addition of a further reading section. This would be of particular use for Chapter 8 "Wider aspects of aromaticity", which talks about aromatic heterocyclic compounds and annulenes; the former of which the text clearly states is outside its scope.
Overall, this primer provides an inexpensive and generally easy to follow survey of aromatic chemistry, which would aid many students' understanding of chemistry.
