General description

Advanced high-school and beginning undergraduate students will find this book a readable and stimulating summary of the fundamentals of organic chemistry. The first three chapters introduce basic physical chemistry and lay the groundwork for the mechanistic organic chemistry covered later in the book. The importance of bonding and mechanisms are stressed throughout, and students are encouraged to apply their chemical knowledge in new and unfamiliar situations in order to develop and sustain their interest. The wide range of examples includes natural products and pharmaceuticals, with the final chapter exploring some new developments and providing an introduction to current research.
