About the Author

Arun Bahl :-
Dr. Arun Bahl was born on January 18, 1945 at Jalandhar. He is formerly Professor of Organic Chemistry in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Punjab University since 1996. He did his. M.Sc. Honours in Chemistry from Punjab University and was able to secure admission to MS in Northeastern University, Boston (USA) where he was awarded a scholarship for pursuing his studies. After completing his MS from Boston in 1969 he decided to join Hariot-Watt University, Edinburgh, for his Ph.D. The reason was that in USA it invariably took about five years to do Ph.D. On his return to India he was appointed Lecturer in Organic Chemistry in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Technology of the Punjab University and later promoted professor. The book authored by him are considered to be the best text-books of Organic Chemistry in the country. He has earned a name as the author of Chemistry Books which are recommended in almost all the Universities of India and even in some of the Asian Countries. He is Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC), London. He is also the Fellow of the American Institute of Chemists (FAIC). His best books, which have no parallel in the country, are Advanced Organic Chemistry, Text-book of Organic Chemistry and Essentials of Physical Chemistry. He has freely used software procured from USA for updating the books. This has added prestige and glamour to his books.

B S Bahl :-
MSc., formerly Principal and Head of the Department, Chemistry, DAV College, Jalandhar.
