Inspiring and motivating students from the moment it published, Organic Chemistry has established itself in just one edition as the students' choice of organic chemistry text.This second edition takes all that has made Organic Chemistry the book of choice, and has refined and refocused it to produce a text that is even more student-friendly, more coherent and more logical in its presentation than before.At heart, the second edition remains true to the first, being built on three principles:An explanatory approach, through which the reader is motivated to understand the subject and not just learn the facts;A mechanistic approach, giving the reader the power to understand compounds and reactions never previously encountered;An evidence-based approach, setting out clearly how and why reactions happen as they do, giving extra depth to the reader's understanding.The authors write clearly and directly, sharing with the reader their own fascination with the subject, and leading them carefully from topic to topic. Their honest and open narrative flags pitfalls and misconceptions, guiding the reader towards a complete picture of organic chemistry and its universal themes and principles.Enriched with an extensive bank of online resources to help the reader visualise the structure of organic compounds and their reaction mechanisms, this second edition reaffirms the position of Organic Chemistry as the essential course companion for all organic chemistry students.Online Resource CentreFor students:A range of problems to accompany each chapterFor registered adopters of the text:Figures from the book in electronic format

Organic Chemistry is a difficult subject. There are many topics that are overviewed in your textbook as if you are wading through mud. To help you understand the subject with ease, Organic Chemistry, a guide to help you ace and survive the course is available.With the information, you should be able to navigate your case a little easier. You are going to build on the knowledge as you would through your organic chemistry class, which shows you an easier way to understand the topics. Often in class, you are given several topics all in one day that are building on each part, but leave you with many questions. The book attempts to answer the questions of relevancy, how one thing leads to another, and how to read the nomenclature/structures to understand compounds better.

Organic chemistry is the chemistry of compounds of carbon. The ability of carbon to link together to form long chain molecules and ring compounds as well as bonding with many other elements has led to a vast array of organic compounds. These compounds are central to life, forming the basis for organic molecules such as nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids.In this Very Short Introduction Graham Patrick covers the whole range of organic compounds and their roles. Beginning with the structures and properties of the basic groups of organic compounds, he goes on to consider organic compounds in the areas of pharmaceuticals, polymers, food and drink, petrochemicals, and nanotechnology. He looks at how new materials, in particular the single layer form of carbon called graphene, are opening up exciting new possibilities for applications, anddiscusses the particular challenges of working with carbon compounds, many of which are colourless. Patrick also discusses techniques used in the field.ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Organic Chemistry.The mere phrase strikes fear in the heart of many students. Featured as the class that crushes dreams and dashes hopes, thousands of students take the course every year. It can be the first few chapters of organic chemistry that dash the hopes of many pre-meds and biologists, and often, chemists and chemical engineers. This book here provides new help for students struggling through the first sections of organic chemistry: from molecular bonding to hybridization to dot structures and beyond.The material begins easy enough with a review of general chemistry, and stuff that should be a review for many students, especially if the course followed gen chem 1.Then the fun begins.The introduction of isomers and nomenclature adds the first level of complexity to a tough subject. Organic chemistry at this point moves from rote memorization and familiarity with the periodic table to a spatial science, where seeing the longest chain, or the ways of rearranging C atoms are not always apparent. Thus the organic chemistry professor is left with several trick questions that provide the class its curve, and sends the first batch of students to the chopping block, where some escape with a "W" and others, with more stubbornness, take their "F"s later on.Subjects covered:What is organic chemistry?BondsMolecular FormulaSaturation ChemistryResonanceSkeletal DrawingsMolecular HybridizationAcids and BasesFrom 2D to 3DIsomersStereoisomers (alkenes)Molecular Attractive ForcesHydrogen BondingNomenclature (alkanes and cycloalkanes)This is the first book in the series, and the second one I've written on this subject. Future books will be based on this format, and will probably be much easier to get out for me, the author.I am a Ph.D. geochemist who has tutored students extensively in organic chemistry. As I learned quickly in tutoring, the only way to successful learn (and teach) the subject is to do it over and over. This book should not be used to replace your attendance in organic chemistry, but to supplement the course. Feedback is instant, and there are a lot of questions you can answer (including 2 quizzes with 20 questions each). This books will help you pass (or even ace!) Organic Chemistry. The price is right, too!Because the exams are interactive (you click on your answer) I strongly recommend using a touch-enabled device to read this book.

Organic (Aurum Negro) takes place in an energy starved society. Two friends skateboarding on an abandoned, blacktop covered parking lot, find several places where oil is seeping through the blacktop. It could be valuable, but it might also be used as a source of fuel for a motorized skateboard. Oil from several locations is collected for analysis. Is all the oil all the same, or are these different kinds of oils? In spite of trying to keep this find a secret the boys enlist the help of a friend, her sister and her sister’s chemistry professor to discover the composition of the oils and whether or not they might be used as a fuel. Physical and chemical analysis of the oils show that they are different but also that they can be used as a fuel to motorize skate boards. As they come to this conclusion they learn that the parking lot is soon to be sold. At this point they hatch a plan to salvage the parking lot for themselves. ARC
