In chemistry, good problem-solving requires a balanced combination of scientific intuition and
methodical analysis. Additionally, thoughtfully presented diagrams and infographics can convey
a large amount of complex information in a more intuitive and accessible manner. 100 Must-Know
Mechanisms (Second Edition) strives to be at the intersection of these two key principles. Its
thorough visualizations enable experienced readers to use it as a quick reference for specific
mechanisms of interest. At the same time, the book's breadth of covered reactions, from classic to
cutting-edge, make it a good study-aid for the developing chemist. A slow and consistent study of
the entire series of mechanisms can help set the foundation for good scientific intuition, while its
detailed infographics and careful navigation features encourage coming back to it frequently. This
edition includes over 40 new illustrations, numerous new mechanistic schemes, enhanced original
figures with a variety of real-case examples, and more.

About the Author

Dr. Valiulin obtained his dual B.S. and M.S. in Organic Chemistry at Lomonosov Moscow StateUniversity - MSU (Russia, Moscow). MSU is one of the oldest established and most competitiveuniversities in the country. He then moved across the ocean to the United States where he earneda Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at the University of Denver. Afterward, he completed twopostdoctoral fellowships, one with Professor K. C. Nicolaou at the Scripps Research Institute inLa Jolla, California, and another with Professor M. G. Finn at the Georgia Institute of Technologyin Atlanta, Georgia. His industrial career started in Boston, Massachusetts where he joined theformulation development group in a medium-sized biopharmaceutical company. He gainedexperience in drug development and early discovery with an emphasis on physical organicchemistry, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), formulation development techniques, andmaterials science before joining the medicinal chemistry group as a synthetic chemist. After sixyears working in a biotech hub on the East Coast, he continues his career path as an organic chemistin San Diego.In the course of his career, he has published over twenty research and review articles and is a coinventor on numerous patents. As a Ph.D. scientist, he believes in staying engaged with thelearning community, and draws inspiration through teaching and by making visually-engaging andeducational chemistry infographics, which he shares on The ChemInfoGraphic Blog: Valiulin's scientific research focuses on chemical synthesis and includes collaboration withresearchers who are driven by a passion to deliver novel chemical compounds that may help savelives
