About This Book

The book captures the essence of the important and typical organic chemistry content studied at the 16-19 age range in courses such as A/AS Level (UK), International Baccalaureate (International) and Advanced Placement (USA), but also goes “beyond the exam” to provide a deeper insight into the real world application of the chemistry normally studied at this level. The book covers the structure, nomenclature, chemistry and applications of some of the typical functional group chemistry studied by the target audience. Factual “nuts and bolts” make up the bulk of the early part of each section, with case studies helping to illustrate the real-world application of the chemistry. Questions appearing within each section are pitched at the level of the AP, A/AS and IB examinations.
