Rearrangement Reactions

Rearrangements in Chemistry: Reactions and Mechanisms


In chemistry a rearrangement is a chemical reaction in which the carbon skeleton of a molecule is rearranged to give a structural isomer of the original molecule.

The rearrangement is - like the substitution reaction and the addition reaction - one of the basic operations of chemical synthesis. Specific reaction types are listed under the heading of name reactions.

Below you will find online available information resources about rearrangement reactions and mechanisms in chemistry.

Organic Reaction Mechanisms

This book, written for graduate and post-graduate chemistry students, provides an extensive coverage of various organic reactions, rearrangements and reagents, with emphasis on their applications in organic synthesis. In the chapters on oxidation and reduction a summary of oxidation and reduction of organic compounds with the different reagents is given in a tabular form for the convenience of students. The most commonly encountered reaction intermediates are discussed in detail. The applications of organic reagents are illustrated with examples while the chapters on prericyclic reactions and photochemical reactions were included in the second and third editions, respectively, in this fourth edition a new chapter on solved problems has been added, to enable students evaluate their understanding of the topic.
