Mechanisms of Organic Reactions begins with the modern concepts of organic chemical reactivity, then presents an up-to-date account of the mechanisms of major reactions of simple organic compounds. Each chapter leads from the experimental evidence to the mechanistic deductions, and ends with problems and a short bibliography. Chapter 1 presents a description and investigation of organic reaction mechanisms. The next chapter looks at nucleophilic substitution at saturated carbon. There follows a chapter on the elimination reactions to give alkenes. The fourth chapter covers reactions of nucleophiles with carbonyl compounds. The final chapter examines additions to carbon-carbon multiple bonds.
