This book provides problems, with answers and tutorial guidance, on the organic chemistry encountered by students in their first year of undergraduate courses. The layout of the book runs parallel with that of the successful Foundations of Organic Chemistry by the same authors. The first three chapters cover basic physical organic chemistry, setting the scene for the mechanistic organic chemistry covered later. The problems are accompanied by useful hints, and the answers are given with tutorial comments which reinforce the chemical principles involved.

This expansive and practical textbook contains organic chemistry experiments for teaching in the laboratory at the undergraduate level covering a range of functional group transformations and key organic reactions.The editorial team have collected contributions from around the world and standardized them for publication. Each experiment will explore a modern chemistry scenario, such as: sustainable chemistry; application in the pharmaceutical industry; catalysis and material sciences, to name a few. All the experiments will be complemented with a set of questions to challenge the students and a section for the instructors, concerning the results obtained and advice on getting the best outcome from the experiment. A section covering practical aspects with tips and advice for the instructors, together with the results obtained in the laboratory by students, has been compiled for each experiment. Targeted at professors and lecturers in chemistry, this useful text will provide up to date experiments putting the science into context for the students.

Organic chemistry is the chemistry of compounds of carbon. The ability of carbon to link together to form long chain molecules and ring compounds as well as bonding with many other elements has led to a vast array of organic compounds. These compounds are central to life, forming the basis for organic molecules such as nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. In this Very Short Introduction Graham Patrick covers the whole range of organic compounds and their roles. Beginning with the structures and properties of the basic groups of organic compounds, he goes on to consider organic compounds in the areas of pharmaceuticals, polymers, food and drink, petrochemicals, and nanotechnology. He looks at how new materials, in particular the single layer form of carbon called graphene, are opening up exciting new possibilities for applications, and discusses the particular challenges of working with carbon compounds, many of which are colourless. Patrick also discusses techniques used in the field. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Organic chemistry concerns the properties and synthesis of carbon-based molecules. Carbon atoms can concatenate into long chains and cyclic compounds, bonding with a variety of other elements, so the possible structures are almost limitless. Graham Patrick explores the world of organic chemistry and its wide applications.

'provides up-to-date information and clearly explains some of the principles, concepts, and rationale for the foundation of current understanding in inorganic chemistry.' Education in Chemistry, November 2001Intended to complement Foundations of Organic Chemistry, the best-selling Primer by Michael Hornby and Josephine Peach, this text is a broad overview of inorganic chemistry. Writing in an informal and relaxed style, Mark Winter and John Andrew cover the basics and also highlight the industrial and environmental relevance of inorganic chemistry.

This book introduces the fundamental chemistry of the molecules that are essential to all cells, covering amino acids and sugar phosphate derivatives, and the macromolecules derived from them. In such a short text it is not possible to provide a comprehensive account of such molecules; instead it covers important concepts concerning their intrinsic chemistry. The aim is to provide the fundamental ideas relating to the chemistry of life that can then be applied to more advanced aspects of chemical biology.

The development of university organic chemistry curricula and thetrend towards modularisation of chemistry courses has driven theneed for smaller, highly focussed and accessible organic chemistrytextbooks, which complement the very detailed “standardtexts”, to guide students through the key principles of thesubject. This concise and accessible book provides organic chemistrynotes for students studying chemistry and related courses atundergraduate level, covering core organic chemistry in a formatideal for learning and rapid revision. The material is organised sothat fundamental concepts are introduced early, then built on toprovide an overview of the essentials of functional group chemistryand reactivity, leading the student to a solid understanding of thebasics of organic chemistry. Graphical presentation of informationis central to the book, to facilitate the rapid assimilation,understanding and recall of critical concepts, facts anddefinitions. Students wanting a comprehensive and accessible overview oforganic chemistry to build the necessary foundations for a moredetailed study will find this book an ideal source of theinformation they require. In addition, the structured presentation,highly graphical nature of the text and practice problems withoutline answers will provide an invaluable framework and aid torevision for students preparing for examinations.

All the basic principles of the field of aromatic chemistry are clearly presented in this important account. Many compounds of industrial and biological significance are used as examples with consideration given to structure, reactions, and properties. Topics such as thermodynamic versus kinetic control and pericyclic reactions are also introduced. In addition to benzene and the classes of aromatic compounds derived from it, the text covers polycyclic arenes, and the small and large ring systems which are embraced by the wider definition of aromaticity. The text will be especially useful for courses in organic chemistry.
