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 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 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 Lab Techniques Explained in Layman's Terms: A Conversational, High-Yield Guide for First Semester Topics
Students oftentimes spend $50-$100 for textbooks that, while very comprehensive, contain technical jargon and advanced details that sometimes cause students to struggle with gaining traction in building a strong foundational intuition of the subject. Recognizing that textbooks are necessarily comprehensive, coupling their highly advanced format with easily digestible, conversational language can help serve as a useful supplemental tool. That said, this is meant to be a vehicle used to gain higher yields on the material provided by a standard textbook, as the reader will be walked through a deliberately structured learning process which involves building a high-level understanding of how the techniques work before diving deeper into the more nitty gritty details. Explanations of the lab techniques will leverage analogies, simple language, and figures to help facilitate the building of a strong foundation of understanding, making the reader’s transition to more advanced contexts (i.e., textbook learning) more manageable. Note, this is NOT a comprehensive replacement to a textbook and thus it is not designed for experts of the subject matter.Also be aware that the book will:-NOT include practice problems-NOT include a walk-through of NMR, IR, GC spectra interpretation-NOT include example calculations for topics such as azeotropes, eutectics, mathematical proof of extraction efficiencies, etc.You may reach out to the author (OrgoLabBook@gmail.com) for any of these items which are not included in the book and in fact, this is strongly recommended. Any further inquiries can also be forwarded to OrgoLabBook@gmail.com.

Solomons' Organic Chemistry has a strong legacy (over 50 years) of tried and true content. The authors are known for striking a balance between the theory and practice of organic chemistry. In this new edition special attention is paid towards helping students learn how to put the various pieces of organic chemistry together in order to solve problems. The notion of a "puzzle", or understanding how different molecules react together to create products, is a focus of the authors’ pedagogy. A central theme of the authors' approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the content is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. The authors' philosophy is to emphasize mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, and at the same time, use the unifying features of functional groups as the basis for most chapters. The structural aspects of the authors' approach show students what organic chemistry is. Mechanistic aspects of their approach show students how it works.

In recent years high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spec troscopy has found very wide application in organie chemistry in structural and physicochemical investigations and. also in the study of the characteristics of organic compounds which are re lated to the distribution of the electron cloud in the molecules. The vigorous development of this method, which may really be re garded as an independent branch of science, is the result of ex tensive progress in NMR technology, the refinement of its theory, and the accumulation of large amounts of experimental material, which has been correlated by empiricallaws and principles. The literature directly concerned with the NMR method and its applica tion has now grown to such an extent that a complete review of it is practically impossible. Therefore the authors have limited themselves to an examination of only the most important, funda mental, and general investigations. The book consists of six chapters. In the first chapter we have attempted to present the fundamentals of the NMR method in such a way that the reader with little knowledge of the subject will be able to use the method in practical work for investigating simple compounds and solving simple problems. The three subsequent chapters give a deeper analysis of the method, while the last two chapters and the appendix illustrate the various applications of NMR spectroscopy in organic chemistry.
