Organic Chemistry – Leroy G. Wade, Jr – 8th Edition


Acclaimed for its clarity and precision, ’s Organic Chemistrymaintains rigor while engaging at all levels. presents a logical, systematic approach to understanding the principles of organic and the mechanisms of organic reactions. This approach helps students develop the problem-solving strategies and the intuition they will apply throughout the course and in their future scientific work.

The Eighth Edition provides enhanced and proven features in every chapter, including new Chapter Goals, Essential Problem-Solving Skills and Hints that encourage both majors and non-majors to think critically and avoid taking “short cuts” to solve problems. Mechanism Boxes and Key Mechanism Boxes strengthen student understanding of as a whole while contemporary applications reinforce the relevance of this science to the real world.
