Organic chemists looking to build their understanding through lab work can utilize this second edition. There are 21 experiments that are clearly described in the integrated table of contents. Each one highlights the relevance and application of chemical principles to biological systems. The experiments are designed to relate their personal experience to the key concepts, using common household and commercial products. Each one is also written in an accessible way that assumes no prior work in the chemistry laboratory. This makes it much easier for organic chemists to conduct each experiment and gain real world experience.
