Summary: Esteemed by both his colleagues and his students, Mait Jones puts his long-time experience as a teacher and as a researcher to work in Organic Chemsitry, a brand-new text that is sure to make the competition sit up and take notice.

General principles are stressed because it is impossib ...show morele to memorize all the details of this vast subject these days.
