Book Description

This new one-semester General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry textbook is written with the same student-focused, direct writing style that has been so successful in the Smith: Organic Chemistry and two-semester General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry texts. Smith writes with a bulleted approach that delivers need-to-know information in a succinct style for today’s students. Armed with an excellent macro-to-micro illustration program and many applications to biological, medical, consumer, and environmental topics, this book is a powerhouse of student learning.

About the Author

Janice Gorzynski Smith was born in Schenectady, New York, and grew up following the Yankees, listening to the Beatles, and water skiing on Sacandaga Reservoir. She became interested in chemistry in high school, and went on to major in chemistry at Cornell University where she received an A.B. degree summa cum laude. Jan earned a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from Harvard University under the direction of Nobel Laureate E. J. Corey, and she also spent a year as a National Science Foundation National Needs Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard. During her tenure with the Corey group she completed the total synthesis of the plant growth hormone gibberellic acid. Following her postdoctoral work Jan joined the faculty of Mount Holyoke College, where she was employed for 21 years. During this time she was active in teaching organic chemistry lecture and lab courses, conducting a research program in organic synthesis, and serving as department chair. Her organic chemistry class was named one of Mount Holyoke’s “Don’t-miss courses” in a survey by Boston magazine. After spending two sabbaticals amidst the natural beauty and diversity in Hawai‘i in the 1990s, Jan and her family moved there permanently in 2000. She is a faculty member at the University of Hawai‘i at Ma-noa, where she has taught a one-semester organic and biological chemistry course for nursing students as well as the twosemester organic chemistry lecture and lab courses. She has also served as the faculty advisor to the student affi liate chapter of the American Chemical Society. In 2003, she received the Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching. Jan resides in Hawai‘i with her husband Dan, an emergency medicine physician. She has four children: Matthew and Zachary (scuba photo on p. 167); Jenna, a law student at Temple University in Philadelphia; and Erin, a 2006 graduate of Brown University School of Medicine and co-author of the Student Study Guide/Solutions Manual for this text. When not teaching, writing, or enjoying her family, Jan bikes, hikes, snorkels, and scuba dives in sunny Hawai‘i, and time permitting, enjoys travel and Hawaiian quilting.


I think this chemistry is better than my last chem book. It's straight to the point and great examples. Good job!
