Organic Chemistry: Made Simple provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of organic chemistry. A systematic approach to the subject is adopted with compounds classified according to the functional groups present. A non-mathematical approach is applied to the modern theories of chemical structure and bonding. Each chapter also contains a summary and most conclude with a set of problems. The book is organized into four parts. Part I provides introductory material, including the scope of organic chemistry and the architecture of atoms and molecules. Part II discusses aliphatic compounds such as hydrocarbons, halogen derivatives of the paraffins, and alcohols and ethers. Part III covers aromatic compounds including benzene and its derivatives; aromatic amines, diazo compounds, and dyes; and phenols and aromatic alcohols. Part IV deals with heterocyclic compounds, physiologically active compounds, and polymers. This book is written for persons with some knowledge of general or inorganic chemistry who wish to obtain an understanding of organic chemistry. The book more than covers the syllabus for the G.C.E. Advanced Level Chemistry course. It could serve as an organic chemistry textbook or companion reader for students studying for a Teacher's Certificate, Higher National Certificate or Advanced Chemical Technician's Certificate.
