Penn State

Lee Silverberg - Associate Professor of Chemistry, Penn State Schuylkill

Book Title: Organiic Chemistry

Author: Robert T. Morrison and Robert N. Boyd

Book Description:

When I was a sophomore at George Washington University, my organic chemistry course used this text. I learned a lot from reading the book and doing the homework problems. This text was presented in a very logical order and manner that really helped me understand how and why reactions worked. The understanding I gained made me want to be an organic chemist, and I still love thinking about it. There is nothing fancy in the text — it’s all in black and white with simple drawings — but the writing is clear and illuminating. I wish I could use this text today as a teacher, but unfortunately, the authors have both passed away and the 6th edition was the last. I still have my copy of the 4th edition (1983).
