The characteristic properties of functional groups and the methods for interconverting them build the foundation of organic chemistry. Information on functional groups may be found in many published texts, but the germane material is usually interspersed with pages of extraneous, often dauntingly complex references. A researcher who needs quick information on ketones, for instance, can spend hours wading through overwhelming data that is only remotely relevant. This primer is a very accessible, succinct and lively reference that adheres to basics-only coverage of the major functional groups. It includes organic halides, organometallic compounds, alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and derivatives, alcohols, ethers, and amines.
