This primer provides a much needed introduction to the organionitrogen chemistry. Nitrogen plays a key role in all areas of organic chemistry, from DNA and proteins through pharmaceuticals to man made drugs and new material. Despite this large coverage, there are just a handful of keyprinciples which underpin the chemistry. This concise primer covers these principles discussing all of the main organonitrogen functional groups. It develops the themes logically under three specific sections, giving a clear overview of the synthesis, reactions and properties of organonitrogencompounds.

From Our Editors

This series of short texts provides accessible accounts of a range of essential topics in chemistry. Written with the needs of the student in mind, the Oxford Chemistry Primers offer just the right level of detail for undergraduate study, and will be invaluable as a source of material commonly presented in lecture courses yet not adequately covered in existing texts. All the basic principles and facts in a particular area are presented in a clear and straightforward style, to produce concise yet comprehensive accounts of topics covered in both core and specialist courses. Nitrogen plays a critical role in the chemistry of a huge range of organic compounds - from naturally occurring DNA, proteins, and alkaloids, through to man-made pharmaceuticals, dyes, and polymers. Organonitrogen chemistry provides a systematic introduction to the main nitrogen-containing functional groups, and explains key principles of organonitrogen chemistry. It develops themes in a logical manner to provide a clear overview of the synthesis, reactions, and properties of organonitrogen compo
