ORGANIC CHEMISTRY provides students majoring in chemistry, health, and the biological sciences with an introduction that is both student-friendly and cutting edge. Award-winning authors draw on cohesive mechanistic themes, targeted problem-solving, practical pharmaceutical concerns, and biological examples in the Eighth Edition of the book. Stepwise reaction mechanisms place an emphasis on similarities between mechanisms by making use of the following four characteristics: the breaking of a bond, the creation of a new bond, the addition of a proton, and the removal of a proton. Organic chemistry reaction roadmaps that may be pulled out and used individually are organized step-by-step per chapter to assist students in developing their own reaction routes. In-margin highlighted vital concepts, updated end-of-chapter study tips, and worked examples are some of the additional features that have been included to increase the likelihood of student success. Additionally, this edition comes with brand new videos produced by the author. This edition places a strong emphasis on “how to” skills, and it is loaded with difficult synthesis problems, medicinal chemistry problems, and one-of-a-kind roadmap problems.
