Organic Chemistry: A Two-Semester Course of Essential Organic Chemistry is a concise and accessible textbook that covers the critical information a student will learn during a two-semester organic chemistry course. The book lays out the essential concepts of organic chemistry according to the requirements outlined by the American Chemical Society. The book begins with a chapter dedicated to covalent bonding and the structure of molecules. In later chapters, students study proton transfer reactions and stereochemistry. They explore nucleophilic substitution, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, spectroscopy of organic compounds, and more. The final chapters are devoted to amines, benzene and aromatic compounds, and an introduction to bio-molecules. Organic Chemistry provides students with a brief yet thorough exploration of organic chemistry basics. The book is an excellent resource for organic chemistry courses, particularly those at the undergraduate level, and can also be used by students as they prepare for standardized ACS, MCAT, PCAT, and Chemistry GRE exams, as well as other professional assessments.Viktor Zhdankin earned his M.S., Ph.D., and doctor of science degrees from Moscow State University.
