About this book

*Designed for a one-semester undergraduate organic chemistry course, typically taken by nursing, agriculture, biology, forestry, and health and life-science students. *Now more user-friendly and pedagogy-rich than before, this skillfully organized text integrates organic chemistry with medical, pharmaceutical, and biological chemistry, helping students clearly define the relationship of organic chemistry to their particular major. Encouraging hands-on involvement, Ouellette provides numerous problems, exercises, and examples of the physical and chemical properties of bio-organic molecules.
