Description:

Nylon, Plexiglas , epoxy resin, and Elmer's glue; dynamite, rubber tires, and spandex. These are a few among the multitude of industrial products produced using the principles of organic chemistry, principles that are often taught to students without reference to the commercial and practical importance of the subject. The marvelous theoretical principles on which organic chemistry is based are therefore often not fully appreciated by students of this subject. Organic Chemistry can appear dry, meaningless, and seemingly irrelevant. In this textbook, designed to be used in conjunction with classic texts of organic chemistry at the undergraduate level, or standing alone for more advanced students, two experts, M. M. Green and H. A. Wittcoff bring the principles and the practice together. Written for students, and also giving much information that could be used to enhance teaching of the subject, the book, presented in ten concise chapters, combines important industrial processes with the principles of organic chemistry. The result is a source of otherwise barely accessible information. In addition, personal anecdotes from the authors' vast experience make this a fascinating and indispensable textbook for everyone wishing to enhance the appreciation of this subject.I have never come across such an enticing mix of stories of discovery with basic chemistry! [ ...] With wit and enthusiasm, with a feeling of the molecule (and what makes polymers grow and tangle), Green and Wittcoff pull us into the exciting world of the interplay of organic chemistry principle and industrial practice. - Roald Hoffman, Cornell University[ ...] Furthermore, the interesting stories and anecdotes liberally sprinkled throughout the book are sure to enliven any classroom discussion. Indeed, as a faculty in a small liberal arts college, I am most impressed by the book's pedagogical value in illustrating the practical side of organic chemistry. " - Dasan M. Thamattoor, Colby College
