Introduction to Organic Chemistry, 6th Edition


ISBN: 9781119106968

Introduction to Organic Chemistry, 6th Edition, by William Brown and Thomas Poon, provides an introduction to organic chemistry for students who require the fundamentals of organic chemistry as a requirement for their major. The textbook illustrates the use of organic chemistry as a tool in these sciences; it also stresses the organic compounds, both natural and synthetic, that surround us in everyday life: in pharmaceuticals, plastics, fibers, agrochemicals, surface coatings, toiletry preparations and cosmetics, food additives, adhesives, and elastomers.

Introduction to Organic Chemistry, 6th Edition is a text most suited for a one semester organic chemistry course. The authors place a strong emphasis on showing the interrelationship between organic chemistry and other areas of science, particularly the biological and health science.


  • New Chapter openers that utilize a guided inquiry approach to capture students’ attention.

  • Updated problems sets in the text with solutions in the Student Solutions Manual.
