A Concise Text-Book of Organic Chemistry presents a concise account of organic chemistry and covers organic compounds ranging from aliphatic hydrocarbons and aliphatic acids to amino and nitro compounds, carbohydrates, and aromatic acids. Flow sheets and tables of comparisons between aliphatic and aromatic compounds are included, and a variety of industrial processes such as synthetic processes are described. This textbook is comprised of 20 chapters and begins with an introduction to the nature of organic chemistry, paying particular attention to the molecular and constitutional formulas of organic compounds, functional groups, and isomerism. The discussion then turns to aliphatic hydrocarbons; halogen derivatives of the paraffin hydrocarbons; aliphatic alcohols and ethers; aliphatic aldehydes and ketones; and aliphatic acids and their derivatives. Subsequent chapters deal with halogen, hydroxy, aldehydic, ketonic, and amino acids; dibasic and unsaturated acids; amino and nitro compounds; carbohydrates; and aromatic acids. This monograph will be helpful to students of organic chemistry.
