Here is a user-friendly supplementary text for organic chemistry students that can also serve as a review of coursework for advanced students preparing for standardized tests. The author introduces this complex subject with a clear presentation of important principles that underlie most of organic chemistry. Chapters that follow focus on the following topics: alkanes; stereochemistry; alkenes; alkynes; nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions; free-radical reaction; alcohols and thiols; ethers, thioethers and epoxides; aromatic compounds; amines; aldehydes and ketones; carboxylic acids and derivatives; more chemistry of enols and enolates; and spectroscopy. Review questions and answers follow each chapter.
