Book Preface

New to This Edition

1 NEW! Expanded coverage of Acid/Base Chemistry in chapter 2 and separation of the chapter on Substitution and Elimination into two distinct chapters allow students to build upon their existing knowledge and move through their first mechanisms with greater clarity and with more opportunities to test and apply their understanding without getting overwhelmed by organic chemistry. New problem-solving strategy spreads have been added to both corresponding chapters for additional support.
2 NEW! Reaction Starbursts/Reaction Maps appear before the end of every ‘reaction-based’ chapter to help students better understand and mentally organize reactive similarities and distinctions.
3 NEW! Visual Guides to Organic Reactions place the reactions covered in each chapter within the overall context of the reactions covered in the course.
4 NEW! Problem Solving Strategies have been added and explicitly highlighted in several chapters, including new strategies for resonance, acid-base equilibria, and multistep synthesis.
5 NEW! Over 100 New Problems include more synthesis problems and problems based on recent literature.
6 NEW! Green Chemistry is emphasized with presentation of less toxic, environmentally friendly reagents in many situations, such as oxidation of alcohols with bleach rather than with chromium reagents.
7 NEW! Chapter Openers focus on organic applications, with introductions and images for a more enticing, contemporary presentation.
8 20 Key Mechanism Boxes highlight the fundamental mechanistic principles that recur throughout the course and are the basis for some of the longer, more complex mechanisms. Each describes the steps of the reaction in detail with a specific example to reinforce the mechanism and a concluding problem to help students absorb these essential reactions.
9 NEW! Explanations and Annotations to Mechanisms help students better understand how each mechanism works.
