Student's Solutions Manual to Accompany Organic Chemistry is a 27-chapter manual designed for use as a supplement to Organic Chemistry textbook by Stephen J. Weininger and Frank R. Stermitz. This book provides the complete answers to all the problems in the textbook and also contains several study features to help broaden and strengthen the knowledge of the material presented in each chapter. These features are applied in the organization of the manual, including Study Hints, New Mechanisms, Reactions, and Answers to Problems. This book focuses on the concepts of types of mechanisms and reactions for a class of compounds. The opening chapters cover topics such as organic structures, molecular bonding, alkanes and cycloalkanes, stereoisomerism and chirality, reactive intermediates, and interconversion of alkyl halides, alcohols, and ethers. These topics are followed by discussions on alkenes, physical methods for chemical structure determination, polymerization, alkynes, aromatic compounds, and Aldol condensation reactions. The remaining chapters tackle the chemistry, synthesis, and reactions of specific class of compounds.
This book is directed toward organic chemistry teachers and students.
