Meet the Author

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (Ph.D. 1963). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry.

With his students, Professor Carey has published over forty research papers in synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry. In addition to this text, he is coauthor (with Robert C. Atkins) of Organic Chemistry: A Brief Course and (with Richard J. Sundberg) of Advanced Organic Chemistry, a two-volume treatment designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. He was a member of the Committee of Examiners of The Graduate Record Examination in Chemistry from 1993-2000.

Frank and his wife Jill, who is a teacher/director of a preschool and a church organist, are the parents of Andy, Bob, and Bill and the grandparents of Riyad and Ava.

    Somewhat of a disappointment

    Overall, the book is very good. It is well organized and explains concepts very well. The chapters often contain tables which list applicable reactions from previous chapters which frees up a lot of time from having to go back and hunt for them. There are plenty of problems to practice with but there is one glaring flaw. While each of the in-chapter questions has 1 sample solution, there are no solutions to in-text problems anywhere in the book. Previous editions included an appendix at the end of the book which listed all of the solutions, but no such appendix exists in this edition. Apparently, you have to buy the solutions manual if you want to know if you are doing the problems correctly or not.
