Organic Chemistry Vol.1 by I.L. Finar

Key Features

  • A comprehensive introductory resource manual for engineering aspirants
  • Provides all conceptual tools to aspirants to understand and apply the relationship between structures of organic compounds and their properties
  • Uses a functional group based content organization
  • Emphasis on mechanisms that motivates students to see similarities in mechanisms among different functional groups
  • Illustrative and graphics enriched explanation
  • Each chapter has section headings, boxed essays, Descriptive Passages and Interpretive Problems
  • End of chapter summaries highlights and consolidates all important concepts and reactions of a chapter
  • Fully solved questions after each chapter
  • Emphasis on problem-solving strategies and skills throughout
