WileyPLUS for Organic Chemistry strikes the perfect balance between theory and practice with a combination of interactive concept maps, mechanism and reaction explorer practice, and video walkthroughs. Through an interactive approach, students learn how to put the pieces of organic chemistry together to solve problems.The Solomons tried-and-true pedagogy has helped students from North America and around the world develop proficiency in the key skills they need to succeed. And this new edition engages your students in one of the most up-to-date organic chemistry titles available.

Turning back to the yew tree, Fryhle noted that to keep up with the demand to create the anti-cancer drug, the pharmaceutical industry would have had to decimate the forests to harvest the tree, were it not for organic chemists who devised ways to synthesize Taxol in the laboratory.


A central theme of the authors' approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the content is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. The authors' philosophy is to emphasize mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, and at the same time, use the unifying features of functional groups as the basis for most chapters. The structural aspects of the authors' approach show students what organic chemistry is. Mechanistic aspects of their approach show students how it works. And wherever an opportunity arises, the authors' show students what it does in living systems and the physical world around us.

He earned his B.A. degree from Gettysburg College and Ph.D. from Brown University. His experiences at these institutions shaped his dedication to mentoring undergraduate students in chemistry and the liberal arts, which is a passion that burns strongly for him. His research interests have been in areas relating to the shikimic acid pathway, including molecular modeling and NMR spectrometry of substrates and analogues, as well as structure and reactivity studies of shikimate pathways enzymes using isotopic labeling and mass spectrometry.


As per a user review This textbook was an amazing follow up read to a honors chemistry textbook such as Chemistry by Stephen Zumdahl. With that context in mind, I really loved reading this textbook and thoroughly exploring the complex subject of organic chemistry. The book covers everything from the basics of organic chemistry to the most complicated, intricate topics such as the biological applications of such organic chemistry.


Pushing Electrons A Guide for Students of OrganicChemistry, Daniel P. Weeks, 3rd ed., Saunders College Publishing,NY 1997.Objectives- This course willprovide you with a comprehensive introduction to the principles oforganic chemistry. Those principles include:


You may have heard that O Chem is a bear. It has taken me a longtime to admit it, but I must confess, it is indeed a tough course.Why? There are several reasons. First, the content of the subject ismassive. Even though this course focuses on how chemists know whatthey know, it is impossible to gain that focus without committing alarge amount of information to memory. Second, I often tell studentsthat learning organic chemistry is like taking Japanese history....inJapanese; not only do you have to learn the content of the course,you also have to learn the language. Organic chemists don't speakEnglish. They speak Ochemese. Their vocabulary is filled with wordslike nucleophiles, electrophiles, acylation, alkylation, pericyclic,anti-periplanar, enantiomers, and diastereomers. Such strange wordsare foreign to most students and they don't sink in the first timeyou encounter them. Or the second time. Only repeated exposure to theterminology of organic chemistry will enable you to learn the contentof the discipline. It's like learning to play basketball: you developthe necessary skills by repeated practice. You can't become a goodball player, or a good student of organic chemistry, by talking aboutit. You have to do it. Then you have to do it again, and again.That's the way it is.


Undergraduate organic chemistry has a national reputation as a "killer" and has been placed on a short list of courses that act as "filters" to the science pipeline (Bradley et al. 2002; Seymour and Hewitt 1997). A central goal of undergraduate organic chemistry is to train students to write mechanisms for reactions using curved arrows to indicate flow of electrons, and undergraduate organic chemistry textbooks provide in-depth coverage of the topic (McMurry 2007; Smith 2007; Solomons 2007; Wade 2006). Despite having access to such extensive textbook coverage and good instruction, many students find it a great challenge to gain the necessary proficiency in writing reaction mechanisms (Friesen 2008; Mullins 2008).


Attempts are being made to teach reaction mechanisms to students in formats that would likely promote increased learning (Friesen 2008; Mullins 2008). Although they are of value, these approaches all tend to be instructor centered and do not address a very fundamental fact-the majority of students find the concept of writing reaction mechanisms abstract, as they do many of the concepts covered in organic chemistry (Dewprashad 2009). Textbooks are not of much help in this area, as they do not relate reaction mechanisms to things students are familar with (McMurry 2007; Smith 2007; Solomons 2007; Wade 2006). As such, students do not become engaged learners. This likely contributes significantly to the development of only modest proficiencies and suboptimal performance by undergraduates in organic chemistry courses.


The introduction of chemical concepts through concrete examples and interest-arousing demonstrations and activities is well accepted as an engaging and effective pedagogical method (Ealy and Ealy 1995; Gilbert et al. 1994; Katz 1991; Shakhashiri 1983-1992). However, there is a lack of demonstrations and activities that can be used to engage students in learning organic reaction mechanisms. This article describes a colorful and engaging demonstration that was developed and used to engage students and lead them to an exercise that provides them with additional practice writing reaction mechanisms. The demonstration is based on the changes in structure and color that occur in the dye molecule of roses with changes in pH.


The solid state photochemistry of uranyl carboxylate complexes is presented with the purpose of developing methods for optical lithography of uranium oxide films. These complexes of the general formula, UO2(OOCR)2 (R = i-C3H7, C5H11, CH2C6H5, CH2OC2H5, C2H4OC2H5), were all photosensitive as thin amorphous films. The primary photochemical reaction for each of these complexes was the extrusion of a CO2 from the ligand and the production of radicals which initiated a chain reaction. The nature of this chain reaction was dependent upon the identity of the organic substituents, R. In some cases the chain reaction required a photochemical step while others were entirely thermal in nature. Of importance are the potentially high quantum yields which can be associated with thermal chain reactions. Some of the systems presented here exhibit quantum yields in excess of 1. This process was shown to be compatible with optical lithography by the patterning of the uranium oxide product on silicon surfaces.


The course intends to give the student a broader and deeper understanding of organic chemistry. After completion of the course the student shall have the following skills: Explain the properties and reactivity of organic compounds related to structureAccount for reaction mechanismsBasic knowledge of methods for transforming molecules Explain/account for the outcome of reactionsBasic knowledge of spectroscopic techniques for structure determinations and interpretation of simple spectra and dataUse common laboratory techniques and methods for separation 041b061a72
