Organic Chemistry. Structure and Function – Peter Vollhardt – 8th Edition


Organic : and Function 8e maintains the classic framework with a logical organization that an organic molecule’s structure will determine its function and strengthens a focus on helping understand reactions; ; and synthetic and their practical .

The eighth edition presents a refined methodology; rooted in teaching expertise to promote student understanding and build problem solving skills.

Students will have access to an interactive and fully mobile ebook; interactive media features and well tutorial style —Where every problem emphasizes with hints.
