This book presents all the aspects of Reaction Mechanism in an exhaustive and systematic manner. Taking a contemporary approach to the subject, it thrives on worked out mechanisms and solved examples for the students to understand and practice various categories of chemical reactions. Designed to meet the growing needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book would also be useful as a reference text to the aspirants appearing for various national-level entrance examinations.
