Expanded coverage in four chapters covering Biochemical topics and biochemical applications integrated throughout the text
Several new chapter openers have been created for this edition. Chapter openers are designed to peak student interest and understanding of the importance of the chapters concepts.
The inclusion of kcal and Angstrom units was added for consistency throughout the text, problems, and figures to aid student understanding.
Color has been added and revised for consistency in many areas to help studentsbetter understand three-dimensional structure, stereochemistry, and reactions.
New sample Problems and illustrations have also been added throughout the new edition to clarify topics and enhance the student learning experience.
For eleven editions, Organic Chemistry has been designed to meet the needs of the "mainstream," two-semester, undergraduate organic chemistry course. This best-selling text gives students a solid understanding of organic chemistry by stressing how fundamental reaction mechanisms function and reactions occur.
