This book deals with all the mechanistic aspects of the organic chemistry. It begins with the basic aspects in organic reaction mechanism and in the subsequent chapters stereo-chemistry and kinetics etc. have been explained and then the mechanism of various organic reactions has been explained. For explaining the mechanism the reactions have been classified as addition reactions, substitution reactions, molecular rearrangement reactions, elimination reactions etc. Moreover the further sub-classification such as nucleophilic substitution reactions, aromatic substitution reaction has been used. An attempt has been made to include large number of varied types of reactions. The book is likely to serve as a useful textbook and reference book to the undergraduate and postgraduate students in developing an insight into the mechanistic aspects of the organic chemistry as a whole.
