9780393931495: Organic Chemistry (Fourth Edition)

Organic Chemistry helps students understand the structure of organic molecules by helping them understand the how and why of organic chemistry.

Organic Chemistry, Fourth Edition, was written to students by two expert teachers, with an emphasis on understanding, not memorization. The authors employ a conversational writing style that is instructive and interesting to read.

Jones and Fleming take the time to not only explain the basics but also coach students through the tough parts of the subject. They do this by pointing out common mistakes that students make and providing expert advice on solving problems.

Whether a student reads the book from beginning to end, or uses the text as a reference, the authors have developed innovative pedagogy to meet their needs, and an art and media program to help students visualize each process.

About the Author:

Maitland Jones, Jr., is Professor of Chemistry at New York University. His undergraduate and graduate degrees are from Yale University. A long-time teacher of the organic chemistry course at Princeton, he is also an internationally recognized research scientist. His field of expertise is reactive intermediates, extremely short-lived molecules that exist only momentarily in the course of a chemical reaction. Within that subfield, Professor Jones is particularly interested in carbenes, carbon atoms with only two of their bond-forming electrons linked to other atoms, instead of the usual four. He is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on this subject and travels widely, lecturing on his research.

Review:

I am very, very pleased with the format, content, and perspective this text offers. Thank you for the high quality of the book. -- Eric J. Sorin, student, Victor Valley College

I have started teaching the course and am extremely happy with Organic Chemistry. It is so pedagogical and so well put together! I think you have a winner with this one. I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes "the" organic chemistry text in colleges around the country in the near future. Word of mouth will help and I'm all for it. -- Gerald Hammond, University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth

I like this book! The writing is the clearest and most readable I've encountered. The illustrations leap off the page. It is very well done! -- Randy Robinson, Luther College

I would like you to know that I find Organic Chemistry to be very easy to read and understand. This may not sound like a lot, but it is. Many texts are worded for the professors instead of the students and that is not much help for those of us who are trying to grasp concepts that are quite difficult. -- Sherry Carder, student, Glenville State College

Jones's conversational tone and evident! Good humor are well-suited to his aim of reducing organic chemistry to rational and recognizable patterns, all founded on a purely qualitative approach to molecular orbital interactions. Students are quickly led to a level of mechanistic analysis not found in other introductory texts. -- Bart Kahr, University of Washington

Maitland Jones's Organic Chemistry is an excellent text. It has a superb focus, a fresh approach, and an easy readability that would make it worthy of consideration by any organic instructor. -- Michael S. Holden, Dickinson College, Journal of Chemical Education, March 1998

Maitland Jones's Organic Chemistry is written in plain English, which makes it easy to understand. Its mechanistic approach is unprecedented and ought to eliminate rote memorization. -- Cosmos O. Okoro, University of Arkansas

Organic Chemistry is an absolute joy to use. Sometimes I find myself reading it just for the fun of it, and the students can't say enough good things about it. . . . Maitland Jones's special talent for selecting the topics, and most important, the right words and illustrations, make the whole text just dazzling in every respect. -- James D. Morrison, University of New Hampshire

The coverage is excellent and I particularly like the way the author sets up arguments rather than just stating facts. The discussion of hydroboration typifies this very successful approach. -- J. M. Percy, University of Birmingham

[Organic Chemistry] is the most exciting undergraduate organic textbook I have seen during my 25 years of teaching organic. I had on occasion given some thought to writing a textbook for undergraduates . . .. Your own book comes closest to what I would have liked to write, and more. -- Moses K. Kaloustian, Fordham University
