Textbook Conversions

Most organic textbooks use a functional group arrangement, but Daley & Daley uses a mechanistic organization. This means that the outline of Daley & Daley is much different than any other Organic Chemistry text in print. This page will compare the location, by chapter of various topics in Daley & Daley with other widely used Organic Chemistry textbooks. We want to ease your transition from another book to Daley & Daley. Please notice that with Daley & Daley, unlike most of the other textbooks, nearly all of the topics are complete in one chapter. We believe that makes it much easier to read and learn.
