About This Edition

From the Publisher

The most trusted and best-selling text for organic chemistry just got better! Updated with the latest developments, expanded with more end-of-chapter problems, and reorganized to cover stereochemistry earlier, the leading online homework and learning system for chemistry, John McMurry's Organic Chemistry continues to set the standard for the course. The eighth edition also retains McMurry's hallmark qualities: comprehensive, authoritative, and clear. McMurry has developed a reputation for crafting precise and accessible texts that speak to the needs of instructors and students. More than a million students worldwide from a full range of universities have mastered organic chemistry through his trademark style, while instructors at hundreds of colleges and universities have praised his approach time and time again.


New Features

  • Improved Chapter-Ending Problem Organization.
    End-of-chapter problems are now grouped by type to assist professors in assigning problems and students in solving them.

  • Earlier Coverage of Stereochemistry.
    Stereochemistry now appears earlier in the book (Chapter 5) to get to this important topic sooner in the course. In addition, Cahn–Ingold–Prelog sequence rules are now introduced in Section 5.5.

  • Revised Coverage of Fundamental Topics.
    The revision of activation energies in multi-step reactions and the update of all bond dissociation energies in Chapter 6 helps students to better understand this fundamental topic.

  • Revised "Focus On" Boxes.
    These end-of-chapter boxes now present interesting applications of organic chemistry relevant to the particular chapter.

  • Updated Figures.
    To better coordinate legends with art, step numbers have been added to the legends of all mechanism figures. In addition, all figure references have been more clearly keyed to illustrations via color.

  • New Supplement.
    Spartan Model: An Electronic Model Kit is now available to package with the eighth edition for those who want to use this advanced technology resource.
