About this Item

This book is written for B.Sc., B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc., students. The subject is presented in a vary systematic manner. Simple langauge is used, diagrams/illustrations are generously used to emphasise reaction. Sites, to indicate reaction pathways. Emphasis is placed on the correlation of the structure of functional gourp with its properties. A detailed Molecular orbital and valance bond interpretation of the structure of each functional group is given. This enable the Student to predict the properties of the functional group. Fundamental principle of energetics, reaction rates and stereochemistry are provided to lay a strong foundation. Mechanisms are described in a step by step manner. Contents, Preface 1.
