Product description

Review

It is a credit to the authors that a textbook that I have adored for so many years has undergone such a substantial overhaul and yet still retains the features that made it quite so attractive to students in the first place. This is a book that will continue to inspire students of organic chemistry for many years to come. Even if you already have the first edition, I am happy to recommend that you invest in this new version you will not be disappointed. ― John Hayward, in Chemistry World, December 2012

Review from previous edition This is a book we have all been waiting for! It is based on sound mechanistic reasoning and contains thousands of useful examples for teaching. Its style is approachable and covers both fundamental and more advanced material. ― Adam Nelson, Lecturer, University of Leeds

Review from previous edition Represents a milestone in the field of organic chemistry textbooks... This is the first organic textbook that could be used in some shape or form on almost every organic chemistry course in any UK undergraduate programme... I soon expect to be hearing "You can look it up in Clayden" ringing from lectures and tutorials, and for many years to come. ― Andrew Boa in The Times Higher Education, 2001

Review

Review(s) from previous edition"If you want a really good book about organic chemistry get "Organic Chemistry" by Clayden, Greeves, Warren & Wothers. - Christian Aichinger, Organic Chemistry Blog."What strikes the reader straight away is the way the text is laid out so that it is visually exciting. I could go on, but it's beginning to sound like a paean of praise, so let me end by congratulating the authors and publishers in producing what I am sure will become the standard text in organic chemistry. Perhaps I should just summarise how I felt about the book when I came to put it down: refreshing, exciting and motivational." - Tony Barrett, Imperial College London."The authors should be congratulated for compiling a book that should prove very popular with our students...the text is very comprehensive and covers key areas in a very attractive and user friendly way." - Dr Don Green, University of North London."The book is brilliant - we have been waiting for up to 25 years for a decent British text." - John Mann, Professor of Biol. Chemistry, Queens University Belfast."This is a book we have all been waiting for! It is based on sound mechanistic reasoning and contains thousands of useful examples for teaching. Its style is approachable and covers both fundamental and more advanced material." - Adam Nelson, Lecturer, University of Leeds"A magnificent resource." - Angewandte Chemie, International Edition, v. 40 no. 12, June 2001"Represents a milestone in the field of organic chemistry textbooks... This is the first organic textbook that could be used in some shape or form on almost every organic chemistry course in any UK undergraduate programme... I soon expect to be hearing "You can look it up in Clayden" ringing from lectures and tutorials, and for many years to come." - Andrew Boa in The Times Higher Education, 2001"As a chemistry undergraduate I have found this book an excellent organic chemistry guide to accompany my university textbooks...the diagrams are clear and the chapters, sections and subsections are appropriately named which makes it easy to find what you're looking for. " - Amazon, January 2011"This is an excellent textbook which covers nearly all the organic chemistry reactions you could ever need as an undergraduate! I can't fault the content - everything is explained clearly with plenty of diagrams and reaction mechanisms. " - Amazon, December 2009
