Organic Chemistry 5th Edition
Written by two expert teachers, the Fifth Edition of Organic Chemistry is written to support all kinds of learners whether students read the book, or use it as a reference. New Visualize, Understand, Draw sections help students draw molecules well, visualize how they are formed, and understand why reactions occur. The Fifth Edition has been revised to be more accessible, with a focus on the basics and more opportunities for problem-solving practice, while the robust media package helps students visualize organic chemistry.

Now in a new edition, this book continues its tradition of excellence in teaching and preparing students for success in the organic classroom and beyond. A central theme of the authors’s approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the text is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. Emphasizing mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, this book shows students what organic chemistry is, how it works, and what it does in living systems and the physical world around us.
This book, the fourth in a series of Understanding Chemistry books, deals with Basic Chemistry.
Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge O-level examinations or the GCSE examinations, this textbook covers essential topics under both stipulated chemistry syllabi. The book is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of basic essential chemical concepts by introducing a discourse feature — the asking and answering of questions — that stimulates coherent thinking and hence, elucidates ideas. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader’s development in forming logical conclusions of concepts. The book helps students to master fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way.
Readership: O level students and teaching professionals in Chemistry.
This book contains authoritative reviews regarding the field of Organometallic Chemistry, written by highly qualified experts within the area, and reviewed by other experts before publication. Because of this high standard, AOC is one of the most cited journals in both Organic and Inorganic Chemistry fields. * high quality of the articles* expertise of authors* careful editing that provides an easy-to-read material
About the Author
Pedro J. P rez (1965) graduated in Chemistry in 1987 in Sevilla. He received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (1991) at the Universidad de Sevilla, under the direction of Prof. Ernesto Carmona. As a Fulbright Scholar, he then joined Prof. Brookhart’s group at UNC-Chapel Hill (USA) where he started the research related to the use of copper-based catalysts for diazo decomposition. In 1994 he was invited research at DuPont Exptal station (Wilmington, Delaware). In 1993 he moved to a new University founded in Huelva, as an Assistant Professor (1993-1995), later becoming Lecturer (1995) and finally Professor of Inorganic Chemistry (2005). The general research interest of his group is related to the development of late transition-metal complexes for their use as catalysts in transformations with hydrocarbons. He is also responsible of the Homogeneous Catalysis Laboratory, an Associate Unit to the Spanish National Council of Research (CSIC), that is part of the Center for Research in Sustainable Chemistry at the Universidad de Huelva. He received the Inorganic Chemistry Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry of Spain (RSEQ) in 2007. From 2010 he is President of the Organometallic Division of the RSEQ and since 2011 he is also Secretary General of RSEQ. Currently he is also member of the Advisory Boards of Organometallics and European Journal of Inorganic Chemsitry.
Transportation systems and vehicles play an important role in modern life. They would not be possible without fuel. This handbook gives a comprehensive overview of various types of fuels used to power vehicles of all kinds and the processes to produce these fuels. The main focus is on automotive fuels, however, aviation and marine fuels are described as well as alternative and novel fuels, such as ethanol, methanol, natural gas and others.
The book is not only valuable for students and graduated scientists from various industries like oil and automobile companies, but also for journalists interested in this field.
About the Author
Barbara Elvers studied chemistry at the University of Hamburg from 1970 to 1979 where she received her PhD in carbohydrate chemistry. After working in a research project in biochemistry at the university hospital in Hamburg she moved to the United States of America in 1980 where she was employed as a visiting scientist at SRI, Palo Alto, in the life science department. She started working for VCH in 1985, first as a freelance translator of textbooks in chemistry, and from 1987 onwards as an editor of Ullmann’s Encyclopedia. One of the main subjects of her editorial work was the acquisition of authors and articles in the field of energy generation and fuels. Dr. Elvers has been living in Hamburg since 1996, working as an editor for Ullmann’s and other reference works and for the Wiley-VCH journal Starch/Stärke.
