Encyclopaedia Of Techniques In Advanced Organic Chemistry ( 4 Volumes Set )
Organic chemistry is the study of the properties of the compounds of carbon that are organic. All carbon compounds except for a few inorganic carbon compounds are organic. Inorganic carbon compounds include the oxides of carbon, the bicarbonates and carbonates of metal ions, the metal cyanides, and a few others. There are over six million organic compounds characterized, including the foods we eat,, furs and feathers, hides and skins, and the organisms they came from not to mention plastics, synthetic and natural fibres, dyes and drugs, insecticides and herbicides, ingredients in perfumes and flavouring agents, and petroleum products. The name organic chemistry came from the word organism. Prior to 1828, all organic compounds had been obtained from organisms or their remains. The belief then was that the synthesis of organic compounds from inorganic compounds in the laboratory was impossible. All efforts had failed, and scientists became convinced that some “vital force” that living organisms had was necessary to make an organic compound. The synthesis of urea from inorganic substances in 1828 led to the disappearance of this vital force theory. The book provides authoritative and critical assessments of the many aspects of organic chemistry. This text is especially written with these students in mind. The language is simple, explanations clear and presentation very systematic. The book will prove to be an essential reading for organic chemistry students at the upper undergraduate level.
