A Market Leading, Traditional Approach to Organic Chemistry
Throughout all eight editions, Organic Chemistry has been designed to meet the needs of the "mainstream," two-semester, undergraduate organic chemistry course. This best-selling text gives students a solid understanding of organic chemistry by stressing how fundamental reaction mechanisms function and reactions occur.
|Key features|| |
The previous edition chapters of 18 and 21 (dealing with enolate chemistry) have now been combined into a new chapter 20. Within this new chapter find:
- An expanded section on enolate regiochemistry;
- Directed aldol reactions are now covered;
- A section on the alkylation of chiral enolates has been added.
Chapter 12, “Reactions of Arenes: Electrophilic and Nucleophilic Aromatic Substitution,” is a completely new chapter, created by combining chapter 23 from the seventh edition, “Aryl Halides,” and chapter 12 from the seventh edition, “Reactions of Arenes”. The rationale for this change involves both practical considerations of the way these topics are already being taught and a connection from the viewpoint of substituent effects and reactivity.
Carbohydrate chemistry has been significantly updated. New sections on the synthesis of O-glycosides and glycobiology have been added. New sections on liposomes, G-coupled protein receptors, and recombinant DNA technology have been added to the other chapters on biomolecules.
New Boxed Essays on biosynthetic halogenation, on aromatase inhibitors for cancer chemotherapy, and conducting polymers have been added and the boxed essay on carbon nanomaterials has been revised.
Over one hundred new problems have been added, many of which involve synthesis of pharmaceuticals and natural products. Several new problems with NMR spectra were introduced in chapter 13.
Handwritten solutions are now used as guides in solving multiple part problems.
Chapter 1 has been reorganized to allow the content to flow in an order typical to how it is covered in lecture; formal charge, to Lewis structure, to resonance, to drawing organic structures.
Electronic Homework. McGraw-Hill’s Connect is an online, electronic homework and course management system which is designed for greater power, flexibility, and ease of use than any other system. Whether you are looking for a “ready-to-use-straight-out-of- the-box” system or one in which you can customize to fit your specific course needs, Connect is the solution.
Significant updates are integrated throughout Chapters 1-4:
- Material on writing organic structures has been expanded and placed in its own new section;
- The section on writing Lewis structures has been expanded to include more examples of molecules with multiple bonding and heteroatoms;
- A new section on bonding in water and ammonia that covers hybridization of oxygen and nitrogen has been included;
- The application of the Hammond postulate has been expanded and a new section on activation energy has been added.

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (Ph.D. 1963). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry.
With his students, Professor Carey has published over forty research papers in synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry. In addition to this text, he is coauthor (with Robert C. Atkins) of Organic Chemistry: A Brief Course and (with Richard J. Sundberg) of Advanced Organic Chemistry, a two-volume treatment designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. He was a member of the Committee of Examiners of The Graduate Record Examination in Chemistry from 1993-2000.
Frank and his wife Jill, who is a teacher/director of a preschool and a church organist, are the parents of Andy, Bob, and Bill and the grandparents of Riyad and Ava.
