Pushing Electrons : A Guide for Students of Organic Chemistry by Weeks, Daniel P.
Elsevier Health Sciences | 30 August 1997
Paperback | 216 pages
This accompaniment to Brown/Foote, Organic Chemistry, 2/e, teaches a skill essential to learning organic chemistry. By working through the program, students learn to push electrons to generate resonance structures and write organic mechanisms. Features: * The first chapter on Lewis Structures consolidates and improves the understanding of organic structure. * The workbook format requires active participation in learning. New to this edition: * A new chapter on solving mechanism problems (Chapter 4) was added in response to growing concern over students' problem-solving skills. * A new chapter on biochemistry (Chapter 5) was added to correspond with the structure of most organic chemistry courses.
