Book Preface

A User’s Guide to ORGANIC CHEMISTRY: Structure and Function

In the eighth edition of Organic Chemistry: Structure and Function, we= maintain the logical framework for understanding contemporary organic chemistry that is a hallmark of the text, while also strengthening the focus on helping students understand reactions, mechanisms, and synthetic analysis, as well as their practical applications. The classic framework of the text emphasizes that the structure of an organic molecule determines how that molecule functions, be it with respect to its physical behavior or in a chemical reaction. Extensive revisions to the eighth edition build on this framework by presenting a refined methodology, rooted in teaching expertise, to promote student understanding, build problem-solving skills, and provide applications of organic chemistry in the life and material sciences. Organic Chemistry: Structure and Function is also offered in a cost-effective SaplingPlus format as an interactive and fully mobile e-Book supported by interactive media features and the well-respected Sapling Learning tutorial style problems. The key innovations of the eighth edition as well as the hallmark features of the text are illustrated in the following pages.

Accessible Organization within a Classic Framework
Our framework emphasizes that the structure (electronic and spatial) of an organic molecule determines how that molecule functions—both its physical behavior and in a chemical reaction. Emphasizing this connection in early chapters allows students to build a true grasp of reaction mechanisms, encouraging understanding over memorization.

NEW chapter-opening Learning Objectives and chapter-ending Summaries provide a framework for students and set the goals for the chapter.

Electron-pushing arrows are introduced in early sections and then reinforced throughout the text to help students follow the movement of electrons and atoms in the reaction.

Focus on Reaction Mechanisms

Animations of key reactions allow students to visualize mechanisms and their dynamics by providing a moving image.
NEW PowerPoint slides for the classroom include embedded animations along with questions appropriate for in-class work or open response systems.
NEW annotations on key mechanistic illustrations recall and reinforce the key tenets of a mechanism.
