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 . 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 and ability to show the beauty and of chemistry, McMurry makes enjoyable. The highest compliment that can be given to a chemistry book applies to McMurry: It works!

The textbook uses a dual organization that blends the traditional functional-group with a mechanistic . 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 strength, organic acids and bases, and curved-arrow formalism.
