More About This Textbook


The Facts On File Dictionary of Organic Chemistry is a comprehensive resource that identifies and defines the basic terms of organic chemistry. The companion volume to The Facts On File Dictionary of Inorganic Chemistry, this dictionary is designed to correspond to the way science is taught in the school curriculum. It deals exclusively with the terms and concepts in chemistry that deal with organic, or carbon-based, materials. This part of chemistry is generally studied separately from the part that deals with inorganic materials and, above a certain level, students need different textbooks for the two branches of the discipline. Easy to understand and navigate, the dictionary is the perfect reference for the home, library, or classroom where students need clear, concise chemistry definitions. It provides quick access and complete reference definitions to more than 2,000 terms, concepts, and principles that make up a significant part of Section Four of the AP Chemistry course for high school students. Appendixes include the periodic table, a list of chemical elements, amino acid structures, and a list of websites. Undergraduate chemistry students and students studying the life sciences will also find the coverage and definitions useful. Entries include: Acylation Biosynthesis Chromatography Epoxy resin Friedel Crafts reaction Halons Lewis acid Nuclear magnetic resonance Polymerization Radiochemistry Valence Walden inversion.
