About the Author

Jack Gilbert joined the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin in 1965 and moved to Santa Clara University in 2007, where he is Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry. He received the Advisory Council Teaching Excellence Award at UT the 2002-2003 academic year, as well as many other recognitions in teaching. While at UT, he co-authored several editions of the first laboratory textbook in organic chemistry that emphasized reactions mechanisms, as well as laboratory techniques, including spectroscopy. He continues to update the textbook, now with the able assistance of Steve Martin.

Stephen Martin received his B. S. degree in chemistry from the University of New Mexico in 1968 and his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University in 1972. After postdoctoral years at the University of Munich and MIT, he joined the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin in 1974, where he currently holds the M. June and J. Virgil Waggoner Regents Chair in Chemistry. His research interests lie broadly in organic and bioorganic chemistry. In the former area, his endeavors involve developing and applying new methods and strategies to the syntheses of biologically active natural and non-natural products, especially those containing nitrogen and oxygen heterocyclic subunits. In the biological arena, he is studying fundamental aspects of molecular recognition in biological systems with a particular focus on how making specific structural changes in a ligand, particularly with respect to preorganization and nonpolar surface area, affect energetics and dynamics in protein-ligand interactions. He has received a number of awards including a NIH Career Development Award, an American Cyanamid Academic Award, an Alexander von Humboldt Award, an Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, a Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science Award, a Wyeth Research Award, and the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry Senior Award. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and has served as a consultant for a number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. He is the regional editor of "Tetrahedron for the Americas." He has delivered numerous invited lectures at national and international meetings, academic institutions, and industrial companies, and has published over 300 scientific papers in primary journals together with several reviews and articles in books. He is also co-author of "Experimental Organic Chemistry: A Miniscale and Microscale Approach."

So this happens to be a rather solid book. I am not an Organic Chemist so I needed to review the "basics" and this book is stellar. If you have the basics down this is not the boo for you. The writing is basically for an advanced undergraduate level. Better than my other OChem book for sure.

This book was a requirement for my Orgo lab and i decided to buy it new. good choice. the content of the book is a bit more detailed for an average student. but it covers the essentials with good intro to instrumentation and uses. basic experiments and an overall good lab book

I used this lab manual for organic chemistry I and II lab at the undergrad level, and it was a pretty decent book. The background and prelab info is sufficient and gives you some insight to the underlying chemistry behind the experiment. However, unless you're taking an organic chemistry lecture concurrently that is in line with the text, then you will be lost in terms of understanding the chemistry behind what you're doing, and you'll be searching for answers online.

they've released a newer edition of this text which is extremely expensive, but the content is the same. they've only switched around some of the pages so the pagination is only off slightly. I would get this edition rather than the newer one since it is much much cheaper for the same material.

Cheap book that I needed for class, I didn't find a difference with the newer edition and this one. Go with this if you can to save a few bucks.

So far so good. I've only had one week of Organic Chem lab, but the book is clear. There are enough pictures, especially of the glassware set-up and you can choose which chemical you want to use (assuming your lab teacher also lets you choose...)

A very good organic chemistry textbook for a college student. I liked this book so much I kept it and have found myself referring to it all the time in subsequent classes. It has easy to understand diagrams and a very nice glossary.
