An Introduction

Introductory Organic Chemistry is intended for use as a text in a single-term organic chemistry course as part of a one-year Introductory Chemistry course series, also known as a General, Organic and Biological Chemistry (GOB) course series. The text was produced with the specific objective of making an openly-available text for the course CH105 Introduction to Chemistry 2: Organic Chemistry at Central Oregon Community College. The audience for this book is likely to include students majoring in fields outside of the Sciences but who need or want some specific knowledge of the subdiscipline of Organic Chemistry. This will include students in pre-health fields, but also possibly students interested in Natural Resources, Agriculture or Business. The objective is to provide students with an exposure to core ideas of the subject without deep involvement in synthesis problems or organic mechanisms. Introduction to Chemistry is a derivative of the open text Organic Chemistry with a Biological Emphasis, by Timothy Soderberg, Associate Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota Morris. This text is cut back dramatically from what is offered by the Soderberg text, but includes sections of text and graphics drawn directly from that source.
