Author: Mark M Green
Organic Chemistry Principles in Context: A Story Telling Historical Approach takes a path that is a radical departure from the way all other textbooks of this subject are written. The principles of organic chemistry are discovered by investigation of the complex phenomena that arise from application of these principles, crossing the spectrum from the academic to the biological to the industrial. All the fundamental principles of organic chemistry normally presented in an undergraduate one year organic chemistry course are found in this book in the context of the stories and the people involved in their discovery. The students who have used this book have found it to be an attractive and effective method of learning organic chemistry. The teachers of the subject have found that the book enhances their own appreciation and love of the subject. The author of the book, Professor Mark M. Green, has organized a free access web site with a link to the answers to all of the problems at the end of every section of the book. In addition this web site, OrganicChemistryPrinciplesinContext.com, has links to explanatory video lectures made by Professor Green for each of the books twelve chapters.
