Organic chemistry can be a thought-provoking subject. Many chemistry students view organic chemistry as a subject demanding long hours of memorization. Author David Klein’s Second Language books prove this is not the case–organic chemistry is one nonstop story that actually makes sense if you give attention. Proposing a unique skill-building approach; these market-leading ebooks teach students how to ask the correct questions to solve problems; study more competently to avoid wasting time; and learn to communicate the language of organic chemistry.

Organic Chemistry as a Second Language: Second Semester Topics; 5th Edition; (PDF) builds upon the principles earlier explored in the first half of the course–delving deeper into molecular mechanisms; reactions; and analytical techniques. Hands-on exercises and comprehensively-explained solutions further strengthen student comprehension of chemical concepts and organic principles. An essential supplement to the primary text; this resource includes aromatic compounds; nucleophilic and electrophilic aromatic substitution; infrared (IR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy; ketones and aldehydes; carboxylic acid derivatives; and much more.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook; Organic Chemistry as a Second Language: Second Semester Topics; 5th Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
