It is a matter of great pleasure for us to present a book entitled "Text Book of Organic Chemistry" for meeting the long felt need of B.Sc. and B.Sc. (Hons.) students of all Indian Universities. The book deals with topics of organic Chemistry. Every attempt has been made to explain the various concepts in this book by keeping the view of recent development in simple, lucid and readable manner. The book comprises forty six chapters. These chapters have been arranged in logical and teachable and form. The subject matter has been presented in a rational and comprehensible basis for chemstry. Therefore, it is hoped that the book will serve the interest of most of the students and teachers to understand the subject matter.
