This book enables readers to see the connections in organic chemistry and understand the logic.

  • Reaction mechanisms are grouped together to reflect logical relationships.
  • Discusses organic chemistry as it is applied to real-world compounds and problems.
  • Electrostatic potential plots are added throughout the text to enhance the recognition and importance of molecular polarity.
  • Presents problems in a new “Looking-Ahead” section at the end of each chapter that show how concepts constantly build upon each other.
  • Converts many of the structural formulas to a line-angle format in order to make structural formulas both easier to recognize and easier to draw.

From the Back Cover:

The flower of the passion fruit, Passiflora edulis, showing 3-fold and 5-fold symmetry in its styles and stamen, respectively. Symmetry and the lack of symmetry are important features of organic molecules. For example, a fascinating distinction between the yellow and purple passion fruit was found when studying compounds occurring within the species. 2-Heptanol, for example, is found in both the yellow and purple passion fruit but, whereas the R enantiomer predominates in purple fruit (92%), the S enantiomer predominates in yellow fruit (82%). Just as the passion fruit and its' flower illustrate important concepts at work in organic chemistry, this text enables students to make the connections between organic chemistry in the classroom and the world around them.

William H. Brown is Professor Emeritus at Beloit College, where he was twice named Teacher of the Year. He is also the author of two other college textbooks; Organic Chemistry 3/e published in 2002, and General, Organic, and Biochemistry 7/e coauthored with Fred Bettelheim and Jerry March, published in 2004. he received h is PhD from Columbia University under the direction of Gilbert Stork and did post-doctoral work at California Institute of Technology and the University of Arizona.

He was visiting scholar at Columbia University (NY) in 2002 (and again in 2004) where he worked on projects in both research and education with his friend and mentor, Nicholas J. Turro. His teaching duties include organic chemistry, forensic chemistry, and upper level courses in photochemistry and advanced laboratory techniques. his favorite activity is working alongside undergraduates in the laboratory on research problems involving the investigation of synthetic methodology in zeolites, zeolite photochemistry, and reactions of singlet oxygen.
