Organic Functional Group Analysis: Theory and Development attempts to symbolize the growth in functional groups analysis by using handpicked methods. Those methods are positioned to represent as many functional groups as possible. The book begins with the author referencing books about a quantitative organic analysis. Majority of the first few chapters highlight the oximation and carbonyl method, which support portions of Chapter 2 and the book's second half. The book then discusses the hydroxyl, amino, and alkoxysilanes groups. Chapters 3 and 4 showcase the strong analytical advantages in using base catalysis and acid catalysis with the same anhydride, while Chapters 5, 6, and 7 illustrate extremely useful functional group methods that have received impetus from research. The next chapters talk about the quantitative ring opening method and Diels-Alder addition method. Succeeding studies are about various compounds and its relevant subtopics. The text provides a very great reference for undergraduates and postgraduates of chemistry and its affiliated studies.
