    The Morrison and Boyd I used was from 1985 or so. And it's not biochem influenced, as the whole biotechnologies thing had not really taken off by then. It's pretty stock, straight-forward O-chem.

    Our undergraduate text in the mid-80s was Kemp and Vellacio, but Morrison and Boyd was also heavily used and recommended.

    Peter Sykes' "Guidebook to Mechanism in Organic Chemstry" held my hand and helped me survive the most hated part of my scientific education. It's a daft price new, but the start of year student-to-student textbook recycling that is about to begin will see plenty of copies available at a reasonable cost.

    It is also worth mentioning that most of what happens once the sensitisers have been synthesised is usually taught under the heading of Physical Chemistry rather than Organic. I can't recommend a book, but there are several threads here discussing classic papers in the field.

    L.F.A. MAson, Photographic Processing Chemistry, is another excellent publication, although not an organic chemistry book it's probably more useful, I say that and I studied Organic chemistry at University.

    Among the standard textbooks these days are the ones by Solomons, McMurry, and Maitland Jones (especially Solomons and McMurry). Older editions are fine (they can be had very cheap at places like abebooks.com). The old standards (Morrison and Boyd, Streitweiser, Kemp, etc.) are good but there are now more "modern" ways of presenting the material.

    Any good introductory book will give you the basics, but as others have said, you may not find much of photographic interest in a general textbook. The redox chemistry of organic molecules doesn't get covered in much detail in basic texts, for example.

    so I made the trek over to the used bookstore today. Finding not even a single copy of M&B in any edition, I picked up Edwin S. Gould, "Mechanism and Structure in Organic Chemistry" - first, (c) 1959 in nice condition. I am dubious of its usefulness but, it does look interesting.

    Gould is quite advanced. It is usually used as a level II Organic book after the introductory courses using the textbooks given above.

    LOL! just my luck.

    Oh well, I'll wade through a ways and put it up on the shelf. I'm halfway through the first chapter and there isn't anything new yet (I wondered around in the Physics department for a few years in Grad school before returning to Math - my real area).

    I loved Gould. I got out my copy in a fit of nostalgia when you posted. It is a good book, but hard. I aced the first exam from Gould with nearly 100%, but my average was a B. I was a slacker.

    My minor was math.

    True.
    However, someone might benefit by the knowledge that "Photo Chemistry"
    and "Photographic Chemistry" are terms that describe very different disciplines.


    Kirk-
    I am a Morrison and Boyd man too... probably the same edition.
    IIRC it was thicker than any of my other books, with the exception possibly of the MERCK Index.
