- Abundant full-colour diagrams provide visual reinforcement of the text.
- Takes a mechanistic approach to organic chemistry, making it unique amongst introductory chemistry texts.
- The carefully-layered approach of Chemistry³ builds on the students’ prior knowledge to support the transition between school and university-level chemistry, providing them with a firm understanding of the fundamental principles on which they can build later studies.
- Context boxes and photographs throughout the book highlight examples of chemistry in our everyday lives, engaging students and reminding them of the central role that chemistry plays in our society.
- The structured maths support helps students get to grips with the often daunting – yet essential – mathematical element of chemistry.
- Cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry to help students develop an understanding of the subject as a whole.
- Worked examples show students how to plan a strategy for solving problems.
- Questions at the end of each chapter encourage students to cement what they have learnt, and challenge them to go further in their thinking around the topic.
- Chemistry³ is supported by a full teaching and learning multimedia package including interactive exercises which encourage students to actively learn, videos of molecular structures, and screencasts in which authors talk through selected examples and key reaction mechanisms step-by-step, clearly linking theory to practice.
New to this edition

About the Author
Dr. Manoj Desai began his career in the pharmaceutical industry at Pfizer Inc, Central Research Division, Groton, CT (1986-1994) before moving to Chiron Corporation (1994-2003) as Director of medicinal chemistry; he was promoted to Vice President, lead discovery and medicinal chemistry (2000). In October 2003, he was appointed Vice President of medicinal chemistry at Gilead Sciences. At Pfizer, he was responsible for the medicinal chemistry efforts that lead to the discovery of oral Substance P antagonist CP-99994 which became the basis for the discovery of the new anti-emetics. At Chiron he formulated macrobead technology for the synthesis and screening of compound libraries for HTS and built the medicinal chemistry department with focus on kinase inhibitors. At Gilead, he was an active proponent to develop a pharmacoenhancer devoid of antiviral activity to improve the pharmacokinetics of integrase inhibitor elvitegravir. These efforts led to the discovery of Cobicistat which is one of components of StribildTM that was approved by FDA in August 2012 for the treatment of HIV infection. He is co-inventor on patents of Cobicistat (US 8,148,374), StribildTM and Ledipasvir (US 8,273,341; Phase III). Furthermore, his group at Gilead has advanced numerous compounds into clinical development for the treatment of antiviral diseases, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Desai obtained Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the M.S. University of Baroda in 1981 working with Dr. Sukh Dev and then carried out post-doctoral fellowships at Purdue University working with Professor Herbert C. Brown (19981-1983) and at Harvard University with Professor Elias J. Corey (1983-1986). During his postdoctoral studies, he worked on natural product isolation, development of asymmetric synthetic methods using organoboranes and total synthesis of complex natural products such as retigeranic acid, ?-trans bergamotene and ginkgolide B. He has co-authored >60 publications in peer reviewed journals and is an inventor on >25 issued patents. Furthermore, Dr. Desai is Editor-in-Chief for Annual Reports in Medicinal chemistry (2012-current), and have co-edited Comprehensive Medicinal Chemistry II (volume 7). In 2013, he co-edited book titled “Successful Strategies for the Discovery of Antiviral Drugs .
Discover a new generation of organic nanomaterials and their applications
Recent developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology have given rise to a new generation of functional organic nanomaterials with controlled morphology and well-defined properties, which enable a broad range of useful applications. This book explores some of the most important of these organic nanomaterials, describing how they are synthesized and characterized. Moreover, the book explains how researchers have incorporated organic nanomaterials into devices for real-world applications.
Featuring contributions from an international team of leading nanoscientists, Organic Nanomaterials is divided into five parts:
- Part One introduces the fundamentals of nanomaterials and self-assembled nanostructures
- Part Two examines carbon nanostructures—from fullerenes to carbon nanotubes to graphene—reporting on properties, theoretical studies, and applications
- Part Three investigates key aspects of some inorganic materials, self-assembled monolayers, organic field effect transistors, and molecular self-assembly at solid surfaces
- Part Four explores topics that involve both biological aspects and nanomaterials such as biofunctionalized surfaces
- Part Five offers detailed examples of how organic nanomaterials enhance sensors and molecular photovoltaics
Most of the chapters end with a summary highlighting the key points. References at the end of each chapter guide readers to the growing body of original research reports and reviews in the field.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of organic nanomaterials, this book is recommended for researchers in chemistry, physics, materials science, polymer science, and chemical and materials engineering. All readers will learn the principles of synthesizing and characterizing new organic nanomaterials in order to support a broad range of exciting new applications.
