Overview

An excellent introduction for chemistry, biology, and premed majors, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Fifth Edition, delivers cutting-edge coverage that is packed with student-friendly features. Offering a clear presentation, the book offsets reaction mechanisms in a stepwise fashion and emphasizes similarities between related mechanisms. And, for the first time, it introduces organic chemistry of sulfur and phosphorus. ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Fifth Edition, is renowned for its unified mechanistic themes, emphasis on biological examples, use of applied problems from the pharmaceutical field, and unrivaled full-color visuals. The new fifth edition features increased coverage of bioorganic chemistry, expanded in-text learning tools, and even stronger media integration—including ORGANIC OWL, its powerful Web-based homework system. Numerous resources help ensure student success in the course, including a running margin glossary, an in-text study guide, and more in-chapter examples than any text on the market. The text also emphasizes how-to skills throughout and is packed with challenging synthesis problems as well as medicinal chemistry problems.

Meet the Author

William H. Brown is emeritus professor of chemistry at Beloit College, where he was twice named Teacher of the Year. His teaching responsibilities include organic chemistry, advanced organic chemistry, and, more recently, special topics in pharmacology and drug synthesis. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University under the direction of Gilbert Stork and did postdoctoral work at California Institute of Technology and the University of Arizona. He is a coauthor on INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 10e (Cengage Learning/Brooks Cole).

Christopher S. Foote received his B.S. in 1957 from Yale University and his Ph.D. in 1962 from Harvard University. His scholarly credits include Sloan Fellow 1965-1967; Guggenheim Fellow 1967-1968; ACS Baekland Award, 1975; ACS Cope Scholar, 1994; Southern California Section ACS Tolman Medal, 1996; President, American Society for Photobiology, 1988-1989; and Senior Editor, ACCOUNTS OF CHEMICAL RESEARCH. He was Professor of Chemistry at UCLA.

Brent L. Iverson received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1982 and currently teaches at University of Texas, Austin. He is a distinguished teacher and respected researcher. Iverson's research group has developed methods for recombinant antibody or enzyme cloning and has directed its evolution. In collaboration with the Georgiou group, he pioneered a novel E. coli surface expression/FACS selection technology that has allowed the group to enhance antibody affinity.

Eric Anslyn is the Norman Hackerman Professor of Chemistry at The University of Texas at Austin. Highly respected in organic chemistry, he earned his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology and has won numerous teaching awards. Anslyn's research focuses on the cutting-edge area of bioorganic chemistry.
