The 12th edition of Organic Chemistry continues Solomons/Fryhle/Snyder’s tradition of excellence in teaching and preparing you for success in the organic classroom and beyond.
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.
WileyPLUS with ORION for Organic Chemistry 12e also features new conceptual practice exercises and support for students including interactive concept map exercises, interactive summary of reactions exercises, interactive mechanism review exercises, and video walkthroughs of key mechanisms by the authors. In response to market feedback, the authors have improved the current presentation of the chemistry of benzene rings by moving Chapter 21, Phenols and Aryl Halides after Chapter 15, Reactions of Aromatic Compounds. Other 12e revisions include new end of chapter problems that requires the student to use synthesis methods across chapters and the New Transition Metal Chemistry chapter.
