For two-semester courses in Organic Chemistry taken primarily by science and pre-health majors. Wade, organized around functional groups, is known for his student-oriented approach–he incorporates problem solving help (features in green), orientation features (in blue), and complete discussions of mechanisms (mechanism boxes and key mechanism spreads).
As always, he explains concepts without taking the unnecessary short cuts that often lead to misconceptions. Additionally, he integrates up-to-date aspects of spectroscopy, bioorganic chemistry (often through accessible margin notes), and many applications to polymer chemistry throughout.
The PH online organic homework system, ACE Organic, provides instructors and students a tool that is created specifically to mimic how students do organic homework-by drawing organic structures. This program provides detailed feedback for incorrect answers to enhance the learning process.
Because it is customary in organic chemistry to publish a complete student solution guide for every end-of-chapter question, the student guide renders the textbook end-of-chapter questions unusable for an online homework system. Dr. Sandberg’s set of questions provides an excellent solution to this problem.
