Synopses & Reviews
Authored by Brent and Sheila Iverson, University of Texas, Austin, this comprehensive manual contains detailed solutions to all in-text and end-of-chapter problems. The best way for students to understand and learn the concepts of organic chemistry is to work multiple relevant and interesting problems on a daily basis. With this guide, the authors help students achieve a deeper intuitive understanding of the material through constant reinforcement and practice. The result will be much better preparation for in-class quizzes and tests, as well as the national standardized tests such as the DAT and MCAT. The solutions manual provides instant feedback by giving not only answers, but also detailed explanations.

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.
