Organic Chemistry : An Acid-base Approach (Revised) (Hardcover) (Michael B. Smith)
about this item
Based on the premise that many, if not most, reactions in organic chemistry can be explained by variations of fundamental acid–base concepts, this book provides a framework for understanding the subject that goes beyond mere memorization. Using several techniques to develop a relational understanding, this updated second edition helps students fully grasp the essential concepts at the root of organic chemistry. The chapters have been reorganized, and the book has been expanded to include additional topics such as green chemistry.
