Organic Chemistry I & II

Steven Forsey

This textbook is designed for Chemistry instructors who want an active, dynamic, and understandable approach to support their own efforts in the classroom. The conversational, relatable tone makes learning the difficult and abstract material easier for students, while “Keeping it Real” sections connect concepts to real-world applications. Plus, this ever-evolving textbook includes auto-graded questions, videos and 3D animations to provide students with a more visual understanding of abstract concepts.
