JD March Organic Chemistry
JD March Organic Chemistry book is quite important for the JEE preparation. It is a good book for a detailed description of Organic Reaction Mechanism and offers a comprehensive treatment of Organic Chemistry. An engaging book, March's Advanced Organic Chemistry : Reactions, Mechanisms and Structure is best for topics like Acids and Bases, Effects of Structure and Medium of Reactivity, Aromatic Substitution, and Stereochemistry of Organic Molecules.

A classic in Organic Chemistry, March Organic Chemistry is considered one of the essential resources for planning and executing synthethic organic reactions. It has more than 25,000 references to the Organic Chemistry literature to facilitate further research. The concepts and mechanisms have been explained clearly in non-archaic terms. Each chapter is up-to-date with latest discoveries and reactions for students. The only drawback of the book, in terms of JEE aspirants, is that it contains too much information which is not really required at 10+2 level.

Topics covered in the book are: 


  • Localized Chemical Bonding

  • Delocalized Chemical Bonding

  • Bonding Weaker than Covalent

  • Stereochemistry

  • Carbocations, Carbanions, Free Radicals, Carbenes, and Nitrenes

  • Mechanisms and Methods of Determining Them

  • Irradiation Processes in Organic Chemistry

  • Acids and Bases

  • Effects of Structure on Reactivity


  • Aliphatic Substitution: Nucleophilic and Organometallic

  • Aromatic Substituion, Electrophilic

  • Aliphatic, Alkenyl, and Alkynyl Substitution, Electrophilic and Organometallic

  • Aromatic Substitution, Nucleophilic and Organometallic

  • Substitution Reactions: Free Radicals

  • Addition to Carbon-Carbon Multiple Bonds

  • Addition to Carbon-Hetero Multiple Bonds

  • Eliminations

  • Rearrangements

  • Oxidations and Reductions

At the end of the book, you will not only find various indexes but also some literature about Organic Chemistry, and an appendix on ‘Classification of Reactions by Type of Compound Synthesized’ which helps students to relate various chapter sections to synthetic transformations of compounds and understand how to write reaction mechanisms.

March Organic Chemistry pdf is easily available online. However, students will need to refer other books for topics like Detection of Elements and Functional Groups, and Chemical Methods of Separations.
