Renowned for its student-friendly writing style and fresh perspective, John McMurry's ORGANIC CHEMISTRY WITH BIOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS offers full coverage of the foundations of organic chemistry--enhanced by biological examples throughout. Based on user feedback, McMurry continues to discuss the organic chemistry of biological pathways and now adds two dozen additional organic chemistry topics, as well as new problems, new illustrations, and new essays. Media integration with Organic OWL, a customizable online learning system and assessment tool, reduces faculty workload, facilitates instruction, and helps students master concepts through tutorials, simulations, and algorithmically generated homework questions.

Sloan Research Foundation Fellow. He has received several awards, which include the National Institutes of Health Career Development Award, the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award, and the Max Planck Research Award.

Review:

"Yes, this text will be a strong candidate. I have been waiting for a text that would integrate biological chemistry for a long time."

"Overall, I feel this is an excellent idea to incorporate and stress the biological aspect into organic chemistry, as many of us having been doing this for some time by a patchwork of textbooks."

"A definite strength of this proposed text is the clear writing style, well-presented and described reaction mechanisms, good and appropriate biological analogies which are well-integrated into the text, and the many fine problems." "I enjoyed reading the manuscript and think it has great possibilities for success. I would very likely use it and will be happy to recommend it to my colleagues."

"The book is a great idea and also one that's long overdue--I wish I had done it. I've always thought that the challenge would be to integrate synthetic chemistry (which is organic solvent based) with biochemistry (which is water based). The author does an excellent job in drawing parallels and noting important differences as well."

"This is a well-written and clearly-presented text that, although first an organic chemistry text, effectively incorporates biological examples as a primary means of reinforcement of topics." "It is of very high quality in terms of writing and clarity, with very clear mechanisms and great biological tie-ins." "I think a prime strength of the book is the biological focus, which promises to engage the pre-med types."
