Organic Chemistry – Leroy G. Wade – 9th Edition


A -Centered Approach to and Studying

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 ; 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 and synthetic organic chemistry.

This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient; three-hole-punched; loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value—this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.
