Organic Chemistry, Second edition

by: Daniel R. Bloch


Abstract: This practical guide eases you into this sometimes-tricky subject, starting with atomic structure and mass. As you progress, you will master organic chemistry essentials such as alkanes and cycloalkanes, isomers, hydrogenation, carboxylic acids, and more. You will understand the nomenclature of compounds, as well as how to predict reactions. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key ideas.
