Providing a modern introduction to organic chemistry for students majoring in chemistry, health, and the biological sciences, this revised and updated edition of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY 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 pre-med students, a wide range of in-text learning tools, and integration with both a homework and tutorial system and an interactive multimedia eBook. To help students understand reaction mechanisms, the authors offset them in a stepwise fashion and 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. Organic chemistry reaction roadmaps take a center stage in this edition with new pull-out maps designed in a stepwise manner by chapter. These roadmaps will help students to devise their own reaction pathways. Numerous resources help ensure student success in the course, including a running margin glossary, a mini end-of-chapter 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.
