Organic Chemistry: methane to macromolecules
by J.D. Roberts, R. Stewart, M.C. Caserio
Publisher: W. A. Benjamin, Inc. 1971
Number of pages: 864
In the present work the authors have tried to paint an interesting, relevant, and up-to-date picture of organic chemistry while retaining the rigorous approach of the earlier books. The reader makes an acquaintance with the properties of some important organic compounds before dealing in an open-ended way with families of compounds-alkanes, alcohols, etc. A heavy emphasis on spectroscopy is retained. The simple introduction to the subject and the emphasis on relevance, particularly to living systems, should make the book appealing to the general student.
