In a highly accessible and unintimidating fashion, this book bridges the gap between conceptual understanding and actual application while strongly emphasizing the development of problem-solving skills. All aspects of spectroscopy have been updated and enhanced, relevant photographs have been added, and many applications to polymer chemistry have been integrated throughout. Increased focus on and discussions of thiols and sulfides, stereochemistry, and mechanisms. More biological applications throughout.

From The Critics
New edition of a text that covers the fundamentals of organic chemistry, including both the classical reactions and the new techniques and reactions in current use by practicing chemists. New sections address free-radical inhibitors, using the Mislow and Siegel definition, the asymmetric reduction work by Noyori and Knowles, the Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation, the aromaticity of Fullerenes and their relationship to other allotropes of carbon, prions, and others. Visual aids comprise boxes containing information on important mechanisms, and electrostatic potential maps. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
