ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Second Edition - the first mechanistic-oriented book written at a level that organic chemistry students will understand! Specifically, the focus on mechanisms is a unifying theme, rather then just an organizing principle. Organizationally mainstream, it is unique in bringing in mechanisms as a unifying principle, and reactions are organized by mechanism type not by functional groups. And now, text/media integration has never been so seamless with the introduction of Organic ChemistryNow for ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Second Edition.

About the Author:

Joseph M. Hornback was born and raised in southwestern Ohio. He received a B.S. degree in chemistry, magna cum laude, form the University of Notre Dame in 1965. He then attended the Ohio State University on an NSF traineeship and received his Ph.D. in 1968. He then moved to the University of Wisconsin on an NIH postdoctoral fellowship. In 1970, Joe joined the chemistry faculty at the University of Denver, where he is now Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry. His research interests are in the areas of synthetic organic chemistry and organic photochemistry. He has served in a number of administrative positions, including Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, Associate Dean for Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering, and Director of the Honors Program. His first love has always been teaching and he has taught organic chemistry nearly every term, even when he was an administrator. He has received the Natural Science Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Outstanding Academic Advising Award.

Review:

"Hornback will serve the average students well and also be an excellent foundation for further exploration by more advanced students. Overall the writing style is concise and focused, helping the students stay focused on the most important concepts of the chapter with out becoming lost in details and distractions."

"I share the author's view that the mechanistic approach is really the only good way to teach the material. I also support the author's focus on major mechanistic classes, while not covering less important classes of reactions."

"The end-of-chapter problems as well as the problems within the chapters are excellent. Many questions work students through the necessary fundamentals. Only thereafter are more sophisticated problems introduced."

"Hornback's mechanistic organization is only different from our current approach in that we cover the functional groups as the major topic of most chapters. But our underlying approach is basically mechanistic. Therefore using Hornback would not present any significant challenges."

"I prefer this mechanistic approach as it is the only realistic way to avoid rote memorization by students of the volume of material presented and it exposes them to the inherent logic of the discipline."
