This text continues to provide the even presentation of topics and flexible organization that have made previous editions bestsellers. the text develops a strong foundation in organic chemistry followed by a solid introduction to energetics and metabolism. Example problems with step-by-step solutions appear in each chapter. End-of-chapter problems are grouped according to chapter section, with key terms and concepts listed at the end of each chapter. Graphs are used extensively throughout the text. Eleven mini essays, five of them new to this edition, illustrate some of the creative applications of chemistry principles and offer a glimpse of human involvement in research and development. This book should be of interest to introductory courses in organic chemistry and biochemistry for first year students of chemistry, biochemistry and biological sciences.
