Organic Chemistry by Yurkanis Bruice

Organic Chemistry is a suitable text for beginner level students of organic chemistry. It serves as a foundational level course for future organic chemistry courses. The text contains numerous illustrations which will help students easily understand the equations and processes involved in this discipline. The language of the text is simple and easily conveys the fundamentals of the discipline.

This text is structured differently from other organic chemistry textbooks. Instead of listing complicated reactions at the start of the book, Bruice has included them in later chapters. The text also highlights interdisciplinary knowledge such as in drug chemistry and life sciences, offering a pathway into advanced level courses in biochemistry and medicinal chemistry. Another special feature of this text is that its structure discourages the memorization of facts. In fact, the author recommends students should reason their way to the solution.
