Download this PDF book: Essentials of Organic Chemistry: For Students of Pharmacy, Medicinal Chemistry and Biological Chemistry 1st Edition by Paul M. Dewick

Essentials of Organic Chemistry is an accessible introduction to the subject for students of Pharmacy, Medicinal Chemistry and Biological Chemistry. Designed to provide a thorough grounding in fundamental chemical principles, the book focuses on key elements of organic chemistry and carefully chosen material is illustrated with the extensive use of pharmaceutical and biochemical examples.

In order to establish links and similarities the book places prominence on principles and deductive reasoning with cross-referencing. 

This informal text also places the main emphasis on understanding and predicting reactivity rather than synthetic methodology as well as utilising a mechanism based layout and featuring annotated schemes to reduce the need for textual explanations.

* tailored specifically to the needs of students of Pharmacy Medical Chemistry and Biological Chemistry

* numerous pharmaceutical and biochemical examples

* mechanism based layout

* focus on principles and deductive reasoning

This will be an invaluable reference for students of Pharmacy Medicinal and Biological Chemistry.

For more years than I care to remember, I have been teaching the new intake of students to the Nottingham pharmacy course, instructing them in those elements of basic organic chemistry necessary for their future studies. 

During that time, I have also referred them to various organic chemistry textbooks for additional reading. These texts, excellent though they are, contain far too much material that is of no immediate use to pharmacy students, yet they fail to develop sufficiently areas of biological and medicinal interest we would wish to study in more detail. 

The organic chemistry needs of pharmacy students are not the same as the needs of chemistry students, and the textbooks available have been specially written for the latter group. 

What I really wanted was an organic chemistry textbook, considerably smaller than the 1000–1500-page tomes that seem the norm, which had been designed for the requirements of pharmacy students. 

Such a book would also serve the needs of those students on chemistry-based courses, but who are not specializing in chemistry, e.g. students taking medicinal chemistry and biological chemistry. I have wanted to write such a book for a long time now, and this is the result of my endeavours. I hope it proves as useful as I intended it.
