ORGANIC CHEMISTRY ,6th Edition
About the Book :
This classic textbook_written by the most popular authors on the subject, and used by millions of students throughout the world for decades_now in its sixth edition incorporates all the recent changes in the field of Organic Chemistry. The authors have given intensive consideration to "the students and teachers" feedback to create a still better teaching/learning tool. Clarity of explanation is one of the outstanding feature of this text.

· Introduction to basic material is now more lucid and easy to comprehend.· Without loss of fundamentals all the newest information necessary for complete and up-to-date understanding of the subject have been meticulously maintained.· The earlier chapters on fundamentals have been rewritten.· Key topics as nucleophilic substitution, elimination, addition, conjugation and stereoselectivity find an easy and effective introduction in the revised version.· Alcohols and Ethers are now treated in Chapter 6 (immediately following nucleophilic substitution).· This permits realistic use of oxygen compound in the chemistry that follows.· Four photographs of molecular models illustrate the shapes of specific molecules and highlight the concept of three dimensional chemistry.· Removal of redundant and outdated material has made the book slimmer by 300 pages_it is streamlined and easy to handle.
