Retaining the concise, to-the-point presentation that has already helped thousands of students move beyond memorization to a true understanding of the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, this Seventh Edition of John McMurry's FUNDAMENTALS OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY brings in new, focused content that shows students how organic chemistry applies to their everyday lives. In addition, redrawn chemical structures and artwork help students visualize important chemical concepts, a greater emphasis on biologically-related chemistry (including new problems) helps them grasp the enormous importance of organic chemistry in understanding the reactions that occur in living organisms, and new End of Chapter problems keyed to OWL allow them to work text-specific problems online. Lastly, , for this edition, John McMurry reevaluated and revised his writing at the sentence level to ensure that the book's explanations, applications, and examples are more student-friendly, relevant, and motivating than ever before. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Written for the short courseâ€”where content must be thorough, but to-the-point, FUNDAMENTALS OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Fifth Edition provides an effective, clear, and readable introduction to the beauty and logic of organic chemistry. McMurry presents only those subjects needed for a brief course while maintaining the important pedagogical tools commonly found in larger books. With clear explanations, thought-provoking examples, and an innovative vertical format for explaining reaction mechanisms, FUNDAMENTALS takes a modern approach: primary organization is by functional group, beginning with the simple (alkanes) and progressing to the more complex. Within the primary organization, there is also an emphasis on explaining the fundamental mechanistic similarities of reactions. Through this approach, memorization is minimized and understanding is maximized.This new edition represents a major revision. The text has been revised at the sentence level to further improve clarity and readability; many new examples and topics of biological relevance have been added; and many new features have been introduced.

McMurry presents only those subjects needed for a brief course while maintaining the important pedagogical tools commonly found in larger books. With clear explanations, thought-provoking examples, and an innovative vertical format for explaining reaction mechanisms, Fundamentals takes a modern approach: primary organization is by functional group, beginning with the simple (alkanes) and progressing to the more complex. Within the primary organization, there is also an emphasis on explaining the fundamental mechanistic similarities of reactions. Through this approach, memorization is minimized and understanding is maximized.
Following a brief review of structure and bonding, organic molecules and functional groups are presented as early as possible. The text is organized primarily by functional group, beginning with simple alkanes and moving toward more complex compounds. Emphasis is placed on the fundamental mechanistic similarities of organic reactions. McMurry's thorough revision continues to present the solid content necessary for this course without sacrifice of important subjects and pedagogical tools. Text and reaction summaries, full problem sets, and outstanding artwork are just some of the features in the Third Edition, usually found in a full-year book. McMurry's clear, well-written explanations remain a highlight of the book.
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, reorganized to cover stereochemistry earlier, and enhanced with OWL, the leading online homework and learning system for chemistry, John McMurry's ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, 8e, International Edition 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.
