9780131217300: Organic Chemistry

For full-year courses in organic chemistry taken by science and pre-health professions majors.

This innovative text is organized in a way that discourages rote memorization, by emphasizing what functional groups do rather than how they are made, highlighting mechanistic similarities and tying synthesis and reactivity together. Bruice's writing has been praised for anticipating students' questions, appealing to their visual and problem solving needs. The text balances coverage of traditional topics with bioorganic chemistry, recognizing the importance of bioorganic topics to today's students.

Book Description Pearson, 2004. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 4th Edition. This book is in Very Good/Near Fine condition overall. Very little evidence of previous ownership. The soft covers are ever so slightly bowed, but this is a result of the printing process rather than handling. The covers are clean and from marks, stains , scuffs and creases. The corners exhibit some minor bumping. The pages are clean, bright and free of any annotations or marks throughout. This is not ex-lib, it comes from a well kept private collection. This is a heavy book and may require additional postage to some destinations which we will promptly confirm before dispatch. All proceeds from the sale of this book go directly to Oxfam.
