A Student-Centered Approach to Learning and Studying Organic Chemistry.

Wade & Simek’s Ninth Edition of Organic Chemistry presents key principles of organic chemistry in the context of fundamental reasoning and problem solving. Authored to complement how students use a textbook today, new Problem Solving Strategies, Partially Solved Problems, Visual Reaction Guides and Reaction Starbursts encourage students to use the text before class as a primary introduction to organic chemistry as well as a comprehensive study tool for working problems and/or preparing for exams. With unparalleled and highly refined pedagogy, this Ninth edition gives students a contemporary overview of organic principles and the tools for organizing and understanding reaction mechanisms and synthetic organic chemistry.

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

  • Organic Chemistry offers the following features to facilitate learning:
  • Highly refined presentation and features present key principles of organic chemistry in the context of fundamental reasoning and problem solving.
  • New! Expanded coverage of Acid/Base Chemistry in Chapter 2 and separation of the material on Substitution and Elimination into two distinct chapters allow students to build upon their existing knowledge and move through their first mechanisms with greater clarity and with more opportunities to test and apply their understanding without getting overwhelmed.
  • NEW! Problem Solving Strategies have been added and explicitly highlighted in each chapter, including new strategies for resonance, acid-base equilibria, and multistep synthesis.
  • NEW! Green chemistry is emphasized with presentation of less-toxic, environmentally friendly reagents in many situations, such as oxidation of alcohols with bleach rather than with chromium reagents.
  • NEW! Chapter Openers focus on applications discussed in the chapter, with introductions and images for a more enticing, contemporary presentation.
  • NEW! Reaction Starbursts appear before the end of chapter material of every ‘reaction-based chapter’ to help students better understand and mentally organize reactive similarities and distinctions.
  • NEW! Visual Guides to Organic Reactions place the reactions covered in major chapters within the overall context of the reactions covered in the course.
  • NEW! Over 100 new problems include more synthesis problems and problems based on recent literature.
  • 20 Key Mechanism boxes highlight the fundamental mechanistic principles that recur throughout the course and are the basis for some of the longer, more complex mechanisms. Each describes the steps of the reaction in detail with a specific example to reinforce the mechanism and a concluding problem to help students absorb these essential reactions.
  • Over 50 Mechanism boxes help students understand how specific reactions occur by zooming in on each individual step in detail.
  • UPDATED! Art has been revised throughout to provide consistency and clarity in the text, giving students access to detailed representations of molecular and orbital art.

Essential Problem Solving Skills help students navigate problems and key topics in the text.

Robert M. Hazen

Carbon is everywhere: in the paper of this book and the blood of our bodies. It's with us from beginning to end, present in our baby clothes and coffin alike. We live on a carbon planet, and we are carbon life. No other element is so central to our well-being; yet, when missing or misaligned, carbon atoms can also bring about disease and even death. At once ubiquitous and mysterious, carbon holds the answers to some of humanity's biggest questions. Where did Earth come from? What will ultimately become of it-and of us? With poetic storytelling, earth scientist Robert M. Hazen explores the universe to discover the past, present, and future of life's most essential element. We're not only "made of star stuff," as Carl Sagan famously observed, but "Big Bang stuff," too. Hazen reveals that carbon's grand symphony began with a frenzied prelude shortly after the dawn of creation, bringing new attention to the tiny number of Big Bang-created carbon atoms that often get overlooked. In minutes, violently colliding protons and neutrons improbably formed the first carbon atoms, which can still be found within our bodies. His book then unfolds in four movements, building momentum as he explores carbon as the element of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. He visits the famed volcanic crater Solfatara di Pozzuoli near Naples, where venting carbon dioxide and other noxious fumes condense into beautiful crystals. He climbs the cliffs of the Scottish Highlands and delves deep into the precious-metal mines of Namibia, journeying toward Earth's mysterious core in search of undocumented carbon structures. Hazen often asks us to pause and consider carbon's role in climate change and what we can do about it, for our lives and this element are inextricably intertwined. With prose that sparkles like a diamond, Symphony in C tells the story of carbon, in which we all have a part.

The 12th edition of Organic Chemistry continues Solomons, Fryhle & Snyder's tradition of excellence in teaching and preparing students for success in the organic classroom and beyond. A central theme of the authors' approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the content is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. The authors' philosophy is to emphasize mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, and at the same time, use the unifying features of functional groups as the basis for most chapters. The structural aspects of the authors' approach show students what organic chemistry is. Mechanistic aspects of their approach show students how it works. And wherever an opportunity arises, the authors' show students what it does in living systems and the physical world around us.

""This book should become an indispensable asset on the bookshelves of pharmaceutical laboratories in academia and in industry, as well as of laboratories devoted to plant protection. I am convinced that studying this book will be an eye-opener for many scientists in the field of life sciences. Furthermore, for teachers in this area it will not only be a useful compilation of the various languages and definitions of organic stereochemistry, but also a welcome source of examples for demonstrating to their students the intricate and intriguing role stereochemistry plays in the chemistry of life."" -Prof. Dr. Dieter Seebach, Laboratory of Organic Chemistry, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

This textbook presents the molecular scale of matter in the broad diversity and richness of its three dimensions, giving due attention when relevant to the temporal dimension in which molecules exist, act, and react.

The focus is on two significant fields of three-dimensional chemistry: a presentation of the guiding principles in organic stereochemistry, followed by a focus on the biochemical and medicinal relevance of this discipline.

The treatment of "Guiding Principles "gives priority to didactic clarity and nomenclature issues, as detailed and illustrated in Parts 1 to 4: '"Symmetry Elements and Operations, Classification of Stereoisomers"''"Stereoisomerism Resulting from One or Several Stereogenic Centers"''"Other Stereogenic Elements: Axes of Chirality, Planes of Chirality, Helicity, and ("E," "Z")-Diastereoisomerism"''"Isomerisms about Single Bonds and in Cyclic Systems"'

This is followed by Parts 5 to 8 which focus on the biomedicinal relevance of stereochemistry, with special reference to the biochemistry and pharmacology of medicinal compounds.

Here, examples and applications are discussed and illustrated based on their relevance to a given specific stereochemical aspect: '"Chirality in Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology"''"The Conformational Factor in Molecular Pharmacology"''"The Concept of Substrate Stereoselectivity in Biochemistry and Xenobiotic Metabolism"''"Prostereoisomerism and the Concept of Product Stereoselectivity in Xenobiotic Metabolism"'

Finally, the book contains a gift for broad-minded readers with an interest in the historical roots of stereochemistry: Part 9: '"Molecular Chirality in Chemistry and Biology: Historical Milestones"'

Key features: Consists entirely of beautifully produced colored figuresIncludes marginal notes, giving clear-cut short definitions of terms used in the corresponding captionProvides an alphabetic glossary of termsOffers an extensive index

This English edition of a best-selling and award-winning German textbook Reaction Mechanisms: Organic Reactions . Stereochemistry . Modern Synthetic Methods is aimed at those who desire to learn organic chemistry through an approach that is facile to understand and easily committed to memory. Michael Harmata, Norman Rabjohn Distinguished Professor of Organic Chemistry (University of Missouri) surveyed the accuracy of the translation, made certain contributions, and above all adapted its rationalizations to those prevalent in the organic chemistry community in the English-speaking world.

Throughout the book fundamental and advanced reaction mechanisms are presented with meticulous precision. The systematic use of red "electron-pushing arrows" allows students to follow each transformation elementary step by elementary step. Mechanisms are not only presented in the traditional contexts of rate laws and substituent effects but, whenever possible, are illustrated using practical, useful and state-of-the-art reactions. The abundance of stereoselective reactions included in the treatise makes the reader familiar with key concepts of stereochemistry.

The fundamental topics of the book address the needs of upper-level undergraduate students, while its advanced sections are intended for graduate-level audiences. Accordingly, this book is an essential learning tool for students and a unique addition to the reference desk of practicing organic chemists, who as life-long learners desire to keep abreast of both fundamental and applied aspects of our science. In addition, it will well serve ambitious students in chemistry-related fields such as biochemistry, medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry.

From the reviews:

"Professor Bruckner has further refined his already masterful synthetic organic chemistry classic; the additions are seamless and the text retains the magnificent clarity, rigour and precision which were the hallmark of previous editions. The strength of the book stems from Professor Bruckner s ability to provide lucid explanations based on a deep understanding of physical organic chemistry and to limit discussion to very carefully selected reaction classes illuminated by exquisitely pertinent examples, often from the recent literature. The panoply of organic synthesis is analysed and dissected according to fundamental structural, orbital, kinetic and thermodynamic principles with an effortless coherence that yields great insight and never over-simplifies. The perfect source text for advanced Undergraduate and Masters/PhD students who want to understand, in depth, the art of synthesis ."
Alan C. Spivey, Imperial College London

"Bruckner s Organic Mechanisms accurately reflects the way practicing organic chemists think and speak about organic reactions. The figures are beautifully drawn and show the way organic chemists graphically depict reactions. It uses a combination of basic valence bond pictures with more sophisticated molecular orbital treatments. It handles mechanisms both from the "electron pushing perspective" and from a kinetic and energetic view. The book will be very useful to new US graduate students and will help bring them to the level of sophistication needed to be serious researchers in organic chemistry."
Charles P. Casey, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"This is an excellent advanced organic chemistry textbook that provides a key resource for students and teachers alike."
Mark Rizzacasa, University of Melbourne, Australia."

Organic Chemistry: Mechanistic Patterns is the very first introductory organic chemistry title that holistically focuses on a mechanistic approach; an approach that has proven to achieve a deeper understanding of chemical reactivity. This mechanistic approach to the dynamic world of organic chemistry visualizes reactivity as a collection of patterns in electron movement, making it possible for students to describe why a reaction occurred. Recognizing patterns of electron flow between seemingly different reactions can allow students to predict how a chemical will react, even if they have never seen a particular reaction before. The text takes great care to establish a progression of reactivity, from simple to complex, introducing functional groups as necessary, while focusing on the reaction at hand rather than the various things that each functional group does. To help students further visualize key concepts, the text includes Ghislain Deslongchamps' acclaimed Organic ChemWare; interactive animations and simulations that bring static textbook molecular representations to life. Together, we seek to open students' eyes to the dynamic world of organic chemistry with a more powerful and systematic approach to learning.
