Five star rating given because of the fast paced delivery and accuracy of the product description. Roughly half the price of my school and brand spanking new!!! Still in use after a semester of organic lab and holding strong.

This book covers a large number of experiments in organic chemistry. It was the book required by my college organic course, and though I assumed it would be fairly dull, I have found it to be quite interesting.

By Milan on September 15, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The book was very well organized. The first few chapters dealt with basic skills, such as melting points and boiling points, needed for organic chemistry students to master standard techniques before advancing to complicated experimentation later in the chapters. The mid to later chapters offered incredibly detailed experiemnts that encompassed a variety of organic chemistry techniques in just one lab section. True that the students did often stay over their lab sections, but the lab techques they learned was outstanding. The background information, in each experiment, was presented in a comprehensibe manner. This book served my college organic chemistry students very well!

This book is a must for the beginner to organic chemistry. The first few chapters teach basic techniques such as crystallization, distillation, extraction, TLC, column chromatography and spectroscopy. Experiments include elimination, sustitution and addition reactions, oxidation and reduction, aromatic substitution and elimination, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, amines, diels-alder, derivatives, photochemistry, natural product chemistry amd biochemistry. Also, gives information on where to locate additional information on chemistry.
