This student and instructor reviewed, new 2nd edition presents information in the form of bulleted lists and tables; with minimal use of text paragraphs. Janice Smith saw a great need for stepped out worked examples; incorporated biological, medicinal, and environmental applications, and an art program that has yet to be seen in organic chemistry! A highlight of the art program includes the micro-to-macro art pieces that visually guide students to conceptually understand organic chemistry. "Smith: Organic Chemistry" is the text you need to see before making your organic chemistry decision.Read Less
New. The text is designed for Organic chemistry course of UG students of Chemistry. The text takes functional group approach emphasizing reactions that the different functional groups undergo. Explanations are apt for introductory level. Presentation of concepts is coherent, relevant and interesting with a clear and succinct writing style. Language is easy, non-descriptive and hence avoiding complex and unwanted detailing, illustrative & interesting as applied on chemical phenomena. Relevant materials from everyday life are used to illustrate concepts throughout the text. Table of contents Prologue Chapter 1. Structure and Bonding Chapter 2. Acids and Bases Chapter 3.
