This is the companion volume to Foundations of Organic Chemistry (OCP #9) , the best-selling Primer ever - more than 20,000 copies worldwide. OCP #87 compliments #9 by providing problems, with answers and tutorial guidance on organic chemistry encountered by upper undergraduate students. The problems are accompanied by useful hints, and the answers have tutorial comments which reinforce the chemical principles involved. The first three chapters cover basic physical organic chemistry, setting the scene for the mechanistic organic chemistry covered later.


  • Admirably complements its popular and successful predecessor
  • Broad international appeal for all students starting in chemistry and biochemistry
  • Good A level text, consolidates and builds on the syllabus
  • Can also be used as a stand-alone tutorial text
  • Uses a wide variety of interesting and useful compounds to reinforce basic ideas


"This companion volume to the primer, Foundation of Organic Chemistry , by the same authors, provides worked solutions to problems which will challenge and support students beginning university courses in chemistry and biochemistry."--SciTech Book News
