Organic Chemistry begins by looking at chemical bonding and molecules. The text moves on to molecular structure and the shape of organic molecules. Other topics covered include organic compounds, conjugation, pi-electron delocalization, aromaticity, acids and bases. Chapters also examine organic reactions, nucleophilic addition, stereochemistry, reactions of alcohols and addition reactions of alkenes and alkynes. There are also chapters on enolate anions, enolate ions, and reactions of nucleophiles with alkenes and aromatic compounds. The text next turns to polycyclic and heterocyclic aromatic compounds, rearrangement reactions, pericyclic reactions, and rearrangement reactions involving polar molecules and ions. Finally, the text discusses biomolecules, chemistry of biomolecules, and the structural determination of organic compounds.
