About

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.

Features and Benefits

  • This relatively short ancillary text presents all of the necessary topics from General Chemistry in the way organic chemists use them.
  • This book greatly simplifies the task of getting students up to speed in the Organic Chemistry course by teaching them how to apply concepts from General Chemistry to Organic Chemistry.

Table of Contents

1. Valence Bond Theory.
2. Molecular Orbital Theory.
3. Acids and Bases.
4. Thermochemistry and Thermodynamics.
5. Chemical Kinetics.
