Overview

To help students succeed in the much tougher and more rigorous Organic Chemistry class, CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES FOR ORGANIC CHEMISTRY presents all of the necessary topics from General Chemistry in the way that organic chemists use them. The book helps students "unlearn" some of the approaches they learned in General Chemistry, learn new or different ones, and successfully apply concepts from General Chemistry to Organic Chemistry.

Pushing Electrons

ISBN: 9781133951889
This brief guidebook assists you in mastering the difficult concept of pushing electrons that is vital to your success in Organic Chemistry. With an investment of only 12 to 16 hours of self-study you can have a better understanding of how to write resonance structures and will become comfortable with bond-making and bond-breaking steps in organic mechanisms. A paper-on-pencil approach uses active involvement and repetition to teach you to properly push electrons to generate resonance structures and write organic mechanisms with a minimum of memorization. Compatible with any organic chemistry textbook.
