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.

"The overall process was easy and simple to use and purchasing
the book was effortless."

"It was the obvious option for someone on a tight budget
and didn't want a second-hand book that might already be
damaged or have someone else's notes in it…"
