Publisher Comments:

Improve your understanding of concepts with this value-packed Hybrid Edition of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, 6E. This cost-effective learning solution includes the book, the Cengage YouBook (a customizable, interactive eBook) and OWL, the leading online learning system for chemistry. To streamline the book and give you an opportunity for unlimited online practice, the end-of-chapter problems have been removed from the printed book and are available in OWL and can also be printed from the Cengage YouBook. An access code to OWL and the Cengage YouBook is included with the book, providing you with powerful online resources that include tutorials, simulations, randomized homework questions, videos, an interactive electronic version of the textbook, and more! Renowned for its unified mechanistic themes, emphasis on biological examples, use of applied problems from the pharmaceutical field, and unrivaled full-color visuals, this Hybrid Edition of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Sixth Edition, delivers cutting-edge coverage packed with reader-friendly features. Offering a clear presentation, the book offsets reaction mechanisms in a stepwise fashion and emphasizes similarities between related mechanisms, using just four different characteristics: breaking a bond, making a new bond, adding a proton and taking a proton away. Numerous resources assist in mastery of key concepts and problem-solving skills, including a running margin glossary, a mini in-text study guide, medicinal chemistry problems, unique roadmap problems, and more in-chapter examples than any other book.

About the Author

William H. Brown is emeritus professor of chemistry at Beloit College, where he was twice named Teacher of the Year. His teaching responsibilities include organic chemistry, advanced organic chemistry, and, more recently, special topics in pharmacology and drug synthesis. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University under the direction of Gilbert Stork and did postdoctoral work at California Institute of Technology and the University of Arizona. He is a coauthor on ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, 10e (Cengage Learning). Christopher S. Foote received his B.S. in 1957 from Yale University and his Ph.D. in 1962 from Harvard University. His scholarly credits include Sloan Fellow 1965-1967; Guggenheim Fellow 1967-1968; ACS Baekland Award, 1975; ACS Cope Scholar, 1994; Southern California Section ACS Tolman Medal, 1996; President, American Society for Photobiology, 1988-1989; and Senior Editor, ACCOUNTS OF CHEMICAL RESEARCH. He was Professor of Chemistry at UCLA. Brent L. Iverson received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1982 and currently teaches at University of Texas, Austin. He is a distinguished teacher and respected researcher. Iverson's research group has developed methods for recombinant antibody or enzyme cloning and has directed its evolution. In collaboration with the Georgiou group, he pioneered a novel E. coli surface expression/FACS selection technology that has allowed the group to enhance antibody affinity. Eric Anslyn is the Norman Hackerman Professor of Chemistry at The University of Texas at Austin. Highly respected in organic chemistry, he earned his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology and has won numerous teaching awards. Anslyn's research focuses on the cutting-edge area of bioorganic chemistry.
