Look Inside

Basic Organic Chemistry


SKU: 5cfab40693c5 Category:

The book in your hands is designed to be a student friendly book. An attempt has been made to trim and tame a fearful monster into helpful jinn. The fact that ‘all the reactions of Organic Chemistry boil down to just Substitution, Elimination and Addition brought about by Radical, Anions and Cations with an active involvement of Electrons (SEARACE)’ constitutes the central theme of the book. The Bottled Jinn chart inside summarizes the basics of Organic Chemistry. Adequate and appropriate emphasis has been given on explanation of mechanisms of reactions keeping in view the average caliber students. The ‘Summary for Memory’ and ‘Problems for Practice’ at the end of every chapter is intended to act as a Quick reminder of the essence of the given chapter. ‘Different in manner, not matter, of presentation’ is the only modest claim about the book. Elimination of fear and phobia by substituting them with comfort and confidence for Organic Chemistry in the minds of average students is the only honest intention behind this endeavor. The book should be hopefully useful for all the under and post graduate students of Organic Chemistry.
