Organic Chemistry – Leroy G. Wade, Jr – 6th Edition


For two-semester courses in Chemistry taken primarily by science and pre-health majors. Wade, organized around functional groups, is known for his -oriented approach–he incorporates help (features in green), orientation features (in blue), and complete discussions of (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 , 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 . This program provides detailed feedback for incorrect answers to enhance the learning .

Because it is customary in to publish a complete student solution guide for every end-of-chapter question, the student guide renders the end-of-chapter questions unusable for an online homework system. Dr. Sandberg’s set of questions provides an excellent solution to this problem.
