About the Author

ROBERT V. HOFFMAN, PhD, is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico.


"...appropriately concise yet written in a clear and very student-friendly style...this book deserves to be successful...If I were a first-year graduate student in organic chemistry, I would surely study this book from cover to cover." (Journal of Chemical Education, February 2005)
