Description: A first and second year undergraduate organic chemistry textbook, specifically geared to British and European courses and courses offered in better schools in North America. The emphasis is on clarity and understanding, with very careful explanations of difficult concepts, many examples related to everyday life, and a fresh and student-friendly writing style.
