Page 218, Exercise 26 In 2nd line of a change 'green' to 'brown'
Page 249, Figure 7.4 The bottom right structure is 1,1,3-trichloro-1,3,3-trifluoropropane
Page 250, middle of the page Rule 5 should read ' the lowest number(s) to the halogen(s) in alphabetical order: for example 1-bromo-2-fluoroethane not 2-bromo-1-fluoroethane and 1,1,3-trichloro-1,3,3-trifluoropropane not 1,3,3-trichloro-1,1,3-trifluoropropane'.
That is, delete ' the most electronegative halogen, the order of electronegativity being F > Cl > Br > I', insert the bromofluoro example and change the numbering in the propane example.
Page 250, paragraph after Isomers heading 5th line. Change '1,3,3-trichloro-1,1,3-trifluoropropane' to '1,1,3-trichloro-1,3,3-trifluoropropane'. (The name under the right hand structure below this is correct.)

Under the right hand structure the name should be 
'1,1,2-trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane' (not 1,2,2-trichloro-1,1,2-trifluoroethane) 
Page 252, Question 13 d should be 1,2-dichloro-1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane

Page 319, Equation 9.7 Insert 2 in front of NH3
Page 322, Exercise 6 In a it should be Ag+(aq)  (A missing)

Page 330, Table 9.3 In c the values in the K column should be
3.6 x 104

1.2 x 102

6th line from bottom, '... the electrolysis of water.'  (not hydrolysis)
Page 352 second dot point near bottom of page: should be '... forms unwanted hypochlorite ...' (not chlorite)
Page 360, Exercise 12 Top left box of the flow chart should be 1-butyl hexanoate  (insert 1-)
Page 367 fourth line after heading Anionic surfactants: formula should be
R–SO2–O(delete extra O). Similarly near the right hand end of the structure in the sixth line delete the O between the benzene ring and the SO2 (SO2 should be directly attached to the benzene ring).
Page 388  Compulsory experiments ... table: in Experiment 1, right hand column, Chapter 9 Exercise 5 (not 4)
Page 410 2nd bottom line, 'At the cathode (negative electrode)' should be blue and bold type
Page 413, Exercise 25 3rd last line, 'amount' should be 'rate'

Page 474 1st line after the heading 13.10 Ring and open-chain ..., Fig. 13.1 should be Fig 13.2
Page 475 6th line above the heading 13.11 Reducing and ..., a-glucose should be b-glucose
5th line above that heading,
b-glucose should be a-glucose

Page 544, Question 14 B is 2-hexene (not 1-hexene)
Page 544, Answer 20 –CH3 should be –H, and 'polypropylene' should be 'polyethylene"

Page 553 Exercise 24 b 0.74 L  (not 11.9 L)
Page 561 Answer 1 The graph is incorrect; it should be:

The sentence under the graph should read: At equilibrium ... 0.8 mol NH3 ...
and 1.8 mol H2  (not 0.4 and 2.8)
Page 562 Answer 26 a FeCl3  (not FeCl2)
Page 563, Answer 12 f 1,1,2-tribromo-1,2,2-trifluoroethane (not 1,2,2- ... -1,1,2- ...)
Page 564, Answer 15 d
                Answer 17
The name should be 1,1-dichloro-1,2,2,2-tetrafluoroethane
the name should be 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2,2-trifluoroethane
Page 564,
       missing Answer 16
a trichloromethane
b dichloromethane
c 1-bromo-1-chloro-2,2,2-trifluoroethane
Page 587, Answer 3 b At the end of the equation, '= 2Na+' should be '+ 2Na+'
Page 589, Answer 20 X contains leucine, glycine and lysine
Y contains alanine, lysine and aspartic acid
