Textbook of Organic Chemistry


THIS book is designed for “ambitious students who wish to study beginning organic chemistry and gain more than a superficial knowledge of the subject”. The author confesses that he has presented more material than can perhaps be covered in an average one-year course: some of it, indeed, would be deferred in Great Britain until the student had entered his honours year.
