Rodd’s Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Second Edition, Volume I: Aliphatic Compounds, Part C: Monocarbonyl Derivatives of Aliphatic Hydrocarbons, Analogues and Derivatives describes the broad class of aliphatic monocarbonyl compounds, their analogues and derivatives. This volume is composed of four chapters, and begins with a description of aldehydes and ketones and their derivatives. The subsequent chapter is devoted to the nomenclature of monocarboxylic acids and their analogues. A chapter explores the chemistry of carbon monoxide, isocyanides and fulminic acid, compounds containing a single “bivalent” carbon atom. The concluding chapter examines carbonic acid and its wide range of derivatives. This book is of great benefit to organic chemists and researchers.
