# John Wayne. Right in the bull’s eye. I see a constant need for real process artisans to stitch together our new drugs that get more and more complex. For a process to be simple and cheap, many skills are required that can only be acquired by exercising, yes, a lot of different organic syntheses, learning what goes wrong, what works, or what blows up. Cool new reactions from the academic front sometimes take a long time to be turned into practical recipes by those chemists. We need both: giant’s chemistry and processes that will put 100 kg of your drug on the potatoe balance.

Organic Synthesis - Merriam-Webster

My philosophy is that a proposed organic chemistry mechanism should flow naturally from the nature of the starting materials and the reaction conditions, and the book is organized to reflect this philosophy.

Students are asked to learn how to draw reasonable organic mechanisms for certain reactions; where more than one reasonable mechanism can be written, students are not asked to learn that one is "right" and the other is "wrong." Practical advice is provided to the student on things to do and not to do when drawing mechanisms.

Phillip Ball has at Nature on the future of organic synthesis (and quotes a number of times from discussions on this blog). He starts off with the reasons why people go to the trouble of making molecules in the first place, looks at how that process has changed over the years (and how the reasons behind it have), and at where both of those might be going.

A working knowledge of the mechanisms of these reactions is indispensable to the practicing organic chemist, yet they are usually not discussed in organic chemistry textbooks or classes.

To generate a basic pool of small organic substituents, molecules from the NCI database14 (237 771 molecules) were "cut into pieces" and monovalent substituents with up to eight non-hydrogen atoms were collected.

It is not a new or supplemental textbook for sophomore organic chemistry, nor is it a reference text for students who have already mastered all the intricacies of writing mechanisms.

hexanes are flammable organic solvents

Organometallic textbooks cover these subjects in detail, but usually from the perspective of an inorganic chemist, not from that of an organic chemist trying to puzzle his or her way through a mechanism.
