Chemistry is the science that has been closest to the hearts and minds of people from ancient times to the present day. Once viewed almost like magic, alchemists pored over arcane texts to try to understand the mysteries that different substances held, and to synthesize useful mixtures.
Today, organic chemistry is the closest thing we have to magic: our understanding of this domain underpins and drives most of our large industries in the modern world, and creates trillions in annual revenue. It gives us daily comforts that people living only a century ago could never have imagined. It has made us almost like gods, and the future is even brighter.
This book will enable you to test your knowledge of the most prominent and useful compounds in organic chemistry. Put on your IUPAC thinking cap, remember those common names, and get busy
