Organic chemistry is the core course of chemistry, biology and medicine, and other disciplines. The textbook Fundamental Organic Chemistry (Higher Education Press) is adopted by many universities. We proposed amendment for two mechanisms in this book involving the radical anion intermediate, the alkynes reduction with alkali metal in liquid ammonia and the Birch reduction.

Key words: Organic chemistry, Radical anion, Mechanism, Amendment
