In the new fifth edition the text in almost all the chapters has been updated by adding new material and deleting the old ones. The book is designed to provide a comprehensive coverage in the area of organic reaction mechanisms for chemistry undergraduate and postgraduate students. Now-a-days the practice of medicine increasingly demands deep knowledge of the behaviour of molecules. Therefore, the future biologists will have to be more of organic chemists, among other things.

Key Features:
1 In writing this fifth edition the major goal has been to integrate the information about many fundamental organic reactions.

2 Based on the feedback given to me by hundreds of students and my learned colleagues, I have made changes by completely rewriting the book at different places.

3 New reagents, new organic reactions and solved exercises have been added.

4 The study of organic reactions and their mechanisms is an enormously broad subject. A full analysis of reaction mechanism requires a good knowledge about molecular structure, stereochemistry and thermodynamics. These topics are, therefore, further developed by laying more emphasis in the fifth edition.
