I would like to express my sincere thanks to the following people who spent countless hours, weeks or months reviewing each chapter for the chemistry and/or copy editing. This textbook would not be what it is without their help.

I approached Holly to ask if she would be willing to comment on my textbook from a student's point of view. She commented and provided numerous questions, many of which are now part of the Chapter Exercises.

Brenda was my go to person for copy editing. We spent many hours reading each chapter of the textbook together. She helped me learn better ways to express my thoughts, while taking the time to teach me the subtle nuances of the English language (despite her dislike of chemistry).

When I started my textbook project, Lyndia volunteered to read each chapter. Her comments and suggestions were extremely helpful to make the original draft better. Most of her suggestions are included in the current version.
I also want to express my gratitude to the following organizations:
I am grateful to the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology for granting permission to use IR and MS spectra found in their database.
