About this book

This concise text provides students with the basis for understanding the chemical aspects of life processes. The first chapter introduces key aspects of organic chemistry, such as atomic and molecular structure, mechanism, nomenclature and stereochemistry. Building upon these principles, the next four chapters describe the chemistry of simple organic molecules providing a stepping stone to more complex molecules of biological importance which are covered in the final chapters.
