Building on the resounding success of the first volume (0-471-27235-3), Organic Chemistry as a Second Language, Volume 2 provides readers with clear, easy-to-understand explanations of fundamental principles. It explores the critical concepts while also examining why they are relevant. The core content is presented within the framework of predicting products, proposing mechanisms, and solving synthesis problems. Readers will fine-tune the key skills involved in solving those types of problems with the help of interactive, step-by-step instructions and problems.
This Book Provides Undergraduate Students With A Broad Range Of Problems Of Graded Difficulties. The Problems Have Been Carefully Chosen To Test Their Understanding Of The Basic Concepts Of Organics & Physical-Organic Chemistry.Contents: Preface; Organic Name Reactions; Organic Reaction Mechanisms; Explain Why; Problems In Organic Chemistry; Organic Synthesis & Transformation; Appendix; Reference; Index; Etc.
Organic Chemistry, A Modern Approach, Vol-II, is for the second year students pursuing BSc Chemistry (Honours) at the University of Calcutta and other major universities across eastern India. It offers ‘learning by practice’ approach. Supplemented with 500+ reaction mechanisms with curved- arrow notation, the book lays a solid foundation for advanced aspects of the subject-matter.
This book provides practice problems for each of the units that are generally covered in a second semester organic chemistry course, as well as three Progress Checks, which are multiple choice questions that simulate the type of questions you will face in many standardized exams. Most importantly, there are about SEVENTY PAGES of *extremely detailed explanations* of the necessary knowledge and reasoning behind how one can arrive at the correct answer for all of the multiple choice questions. The very detailed solutions make this book an ideal source for improving your understanding and for doing well on tests such as: the standardized final exam offered at many schools, medical school exams, pharmacy school exams, etc. There is also a 100+ page section of introductory spectrometry/spectroscopy practice problems (mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy and proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry) with answers and peak assignments provided. The book also has free-response questions with answers not included so they can be assigned by instructors.
Advanced Problems in Organic Chemistry comprises 10 chapters which are designed coherently to aid students in problem solving . The exercises in the book have been divided into two levels. The first level will help students to practice fundamental problem
