Organic Chemistry with a Biological Emphasis Volume I
Organic Chemistry Concepts: An EFL Approach provides an introductory overview of the subject, to enable the reader to understand many critical, experimental facts. Designed to cover a single-semester course or a needed review on the principles of Organic Chemistry, the book is written and organized for readers whose first language is not English. The book has been class-tested internationally as well as with native English speakers, and differs from other introductory textbooks in the subject both in its coverage and organization, with a particular focus on common problem areas. Once readers have a foundation of the concepts and language of organic chemistry, they can build from that knowledge and work with relatively complex molecules, such as some natural product types covered in a later chapter. The book describes basic level reaction mechanisms when instructive, and illustrations throughout to emphasize the 3D nature of organic chemistry. The book includes multiple pedagogical features, such as chapter questions and useful appendices, to support reader comprehension. A postdoctoral fellowship with Richard Cookson at the University of Southampton was followed by a few years of pharmaceutical industrial experience.
Publisher: Independent. The text covers all subject but it would be helpful to add solutions for some problems so that students can gain a better understanding of the concepts to make sure they are on the right track. Although somewhat lengthly, I enjoyed reading the scenarios in the beginning of each chapter. The text engages the audience and makes the theory of organic chemistry more relatable on a macroscopic level. The topics in the text do not follow a traditional organic chemistry textbook which makes it more interesting for the reader. The textbook is a very thorough discussion of the organic chemistry of biological processes.
