Basic Organic Chemistry for the Life Sciences

Authors: Vančik, Hrvoj

  • Simple and original explanation of the phenomena of chemical bond, molecular structure and reaction mechanisms
  • The text is organized in such a way that students can simultaneously understand both approaches to organic chemistry, the classification of organic compounds and the classifications of organic reactions
  • Simple schemes with consistent use of colored labels within the structural formulas
  • Extension of the principles of organic reaction mechanism to the processes in living organisms
  • Text affords some details in historical development of chemistry and stimulates the discussion about the relation between molecular complexity and evolution

About this Textbook

This book is designed for students of biology, molecular biology, ecology, medicine, agriculture, forestry and other professions where the knowledge of organic chemistry plays the important role. The work may also be of interest to non-professionals, as well as to teachers in high schools. The book consists of 11 chapters that cover: - basic principles of structure and constitution of organic compounds, - the elements of the nomenclature, - the concepts of the nature of chemical bond, - introductions in NMR and IR spectroscopy, - the concepts and main classes of the organic reaction mechanisms, - reactions and properties of common classes or organic compounds, - and the introduction to the chemistry of the natural organic products followed by basic principles of the reactions in living cells.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This concise book will be useful for students who need to learn the fundamentals of organic chemistry and how it pertains to biochemistry and biology. … This content is a good primer for those about to take a biochemistry course. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and Upper-division undergraduates; professionals/practitioners.” (C. E. Stilts, Choice, Vol. 52 (5), January, 2015)
