  • 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.

    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.
