Your plain-English guide to 
understanding chemical reactions
and tackling tests with ease
Whether you’re confused by carbocations or baffled by 
biomolecules, this straightforward, easy-to-read guide 
demystifies Organic Chemistry II. From appreciating 
aromatic compounds to comprehending carbonyls, you’ll 
discover what you need to know about organic reactions in 
order to master the course and score high on your exams!
?  Get comfortable with the course — follow your coursework 
alongside the book, as it corresponds to a typical second 
semester college-level organic chemistry class
?  Refresh your knowledge of key topics — from mechanisms to 
alcohol and ethers, from conjugated unsaturated systems to 
electrophiles and nucleophiles, get prepped for Organic II
?  Grasp carbonyl group basics — get an overview of structure, 
reactivity, and spectroscopy before delving deeper into 
aldehydes and ketones, enols and enolates, and carboxylic acids 
and their derivatives
?  Ace advanced topics — take a closer look at nitrogen compounds, 
organometallic compounds, the Claisen Condensation and its 
variations, and biomolecules, such as carbohydrates, lipids, 
and proteins
