Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry / Edition 4by T. W. Graham Solomons
Pub. Date: 08/17/1993
Like its popular predecessors, this introductory text in organic chemistry emphasizes the biological, medical, and environmental applications of organic chemistry which are effective in stimulating the interest of students. Important changes to the text include increased focus on reaction mechanisms; an earlier presentation of organic reactions; an extensively revised chapter on spectroscopy which features new 300 MHz FT NMR spectra; a novel technique for adding HX to alkenes and alkynes; and a glossary of more than 350 terms. Organized around a combined mechanismistic and functional group approach, this outstanding textbook offers numerous new opportunities for students to apply what they have learned by problem solving. It differs from Organic Chemistry, Sixth Edition by T. W. Graham Solomons in two ways: Fundamentals has no special topics and the last chapter is a condensed version of the two final chapters in organic chemistry.
