9780471680284: The Vocabulary and Concepts of Organic Chemistry

This book is a basic reference providing concise, accurate definitions of the key terms and concepts of organic chemistry. Not simply a listing of organic compounds, structures, and nomenclatures, the book is organized into topical chapters in which related terms and concepts appear in close proximity to one another, giving context to the information and helping to make fine distinctions more understandable. Areas covered include: bonding, symmetry, stereochemistry, types of organic compounds, reactions, mechansims, spectroscopy, and photochemistry.

From the Back Cover:

Concise, accurate, in-depth definitions of all key terms and concepts in organic chemistry

The language of organic chemistry embodies a unique set of concepts and nuanced meanings. For more than a quarter of a century, students and professionals seeking to acquire a quick and thorough familiarity with that language have turned to The Vocabulary of Organic Chemistry.

No mere alphabetical listing, this one-of-a-kind reference comprises eighteen topical chapters covering key subject areas in organic chemistry and related fields—from atomic orbital theory to polymer chemistry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to the chemical utilization of fossil fuels. Related terms and concepts—such as catalyst and zoelite—appear in the same chapter and in close proximity to one another, thus placing them in context and making it easier for readers to grasp fine distinctions. And throughout, specific examples and clearly drawn structures help to clarify key concepts.

Revised and updated for the twenty-first century, The Vocabulary and Concepts of Organic Chemistry, Second Edition offers:

  • Hundreds of terms and concepts—fully explained and in context
  • Myriad examples and illustrations
  • Brief introductory narratives that help place subject areas in historical perspective
  • New sections on the four common spectroscopies (NMR, IR, Mass, UV) and photochemistry

Written by an author team with nearly one and a half centuries of combined teaching and research experience, this book is an ideal study aid for undergraduate and graduate students and a valuable professional resource for chemists who want to brush up on specific areas in organic chemistry.
