Organic Chemistry – John McMurry – 7th Edition

Description

Succeed in your course with the help of this proven best-seller! John ’s is consistently praised as the most clearly written available for the course.

In John McMurry’s words: “I wrote this book because I love writing. I get great pleasure and satisfaction from taking a complicated subject, turning it around until I see it clearly from a new angle, and then explaining it in simple words.” Through his lucid writing and ability to show the beauty and of , McMurry makes enjoyable. The highest compliment that can be given to a chemistry book applies to McMurry: It works!

The uses a dual organization that blends the traditional functional-group approach with a mechanistic approach. The primary organization is by functional group, beginning with the simple alkenes and progressing to the more complex carbonyl group and . The updated edition adds sections on acid-base , organic acids and , and curved-arrow formalism.
