Instant Notes in Organic Chemistry, Second Edition, is the perfect text for undergraduates looking for a concise introduction to the subject, or a study guide to use before examinations. Each topic begins with a summary of essential facts-an ideal revision checklist-followed by a description of the subject that focuses on core information, with clear, simple diagrams that are easy for students to understand and recall in essays and exams.
Intended for undergraduate chemistry students, this study guide reviews the atomic structure and bonding of carbon, functional groups, stereochemistry, the basic theory of reactions and mechanisms, and the preparation and properties of alkenes, aldehydes, carboxylic acids, alkyl halides, alcohols, ethers, and amines. The second edition expands the closing section on spectroscopy. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
