Organic Chemistry, 3rd Australia & New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119570981

The third edition of Organic Chemistry by Dr. David Klein builds on the phenomenal success of the first two editions, which presented his unique skills-based approach to learning organic chemistry. Dr. Klein’s skills-based approach includes all of the concepts typically covered in an organic chemistry textbook, and places special emphasis on skills development to support these concepts. This emphasis on skills development in unique SkillBuilder examples provides extensive opportunities for two-semester Organic Chemistry students to develop proficiency in the key skills necessary to succeed in organic chemistry.

New additions to the third edition includes: author-curated WileyPLUS course- offering instructors a pre-built suite of assignments tailored to the way David Klein teaches his course, ACS-style problem sets in each chapter: providing students practice on solving problems similar to what they will encounter on the ACS exam, interactive graphics embedded in every chapter: provides students with drag and drop- style assessment on mechanism problems (over 300 total), and 3D Molecular Visualisations, Reaction Explorer Mechanisms embedded in each chapter.


  • Chapter on organometallic reactions covers modern synthetic techniques, including Stille coupling, Suzuki coupling, Negishi coupling, the Heck reaction, and alkene metathesis
  • Interactive graphics embedded in every chapter: provides youwith drag and drop- style assessment on mechanism problems (over 300 total)
  • Mid-level literature based problems- offering sample problems based “real world” applications (or cases) that have been published in professional journals
