Free Advanced Topics Textbooks

My studies in the field of chemistry came to an abrupt halt with an organic chemistry class. Since most textbooks are written for students qualified to use them, there are times where I simply have no idea where to file them. In other cases, if I can only find one online work on a topic, I will also include it here.

Students of today are so fortunate that so many academics and scholars are sharing their knowledge so freely. Hopefully these books can be used as additional study materials for students to better understand the topics being studied in their universities. They would also seem helpful to returning students or anyone else needing a bit of a refresher course in advanced chemistry topics.
