Description

Providing a modern introduction to organic chemistry for students majoring in chemistry, health, and the biological sciences, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Sixth Edition, is both student-friendly and cutting-edge and incorporates the latest advances in the field. Professors Brown, Iverson, and Anslyn have all won teaching awards at their respective schools, and they use their skills to build upon the text's hallmarks of unified mechanistic themes, focused problem-solving, use of applied problems from the pharmaceutical field, and unrivaled visuals. Thoroughly updated throughout, the book offers numerous biological examples for premed students, a wide range of in-text learning tools, and integration with the OWL for Organic Chemistry homework and tutorial system, which now includes an interactive multimedia eBook. In this edition, to help students understand reaction mechanisms, the authors offset reaction mechanisms in a stepwise fashion and now emphasize similarities between related mechanisms using just four different characteristics: breaking a bond, making a new bond, adding a proton and taking a proton away.

Numerous resources help ensure student success in the course, including a running margin glossary, a mini in-text study guide, and more in-chapter examples than any other text on the market. Emphasizing "how-to" skills, this edition is packed with challenging synthesis problems, medicinal chemistry problems, and unique roadmap problems.
