Organic Chemistry. Structure and Function – Peter Vollhardt – 5th Edition


Introducing cutting-edge research in a fresh; student-friendly way; : and Function 5th edition. A wealth of unique study tools help organize and understand the substantial information presented in this . And this new edition incorporates the most current research and new synthesis and green .

This framework emphasizes that the structure of an molecule determines how that molecule ; be it with respect to its physical behavior or in a chemical reaction. In the 5th edition; the authors have strengthened the themes of understanding mechanisms; reactivity; and synthetic analysis to apply chemical concepts to realistic situations.
