This text gives students a solid understanding of organic chemistry by stressing how fundamental reaction mechanisms function and how reactions occur. Through three editions, Organic Chemistry by Frank Carey, has distinguished itself as one of the most fundamentally sound and innovative two-semester organic chemistry texts on the market. Now through the use of state-of-the-art technology, the 4th edition of the text breaks new ground in presenting organic chemistry as a three-dimensional science. With over 300 new illustrations and seamless integration of reaction animations and molecular modeling exercises, the 4th edition of Carey clearly offers the most up-to-date approach to the study of organic chemistry.

Full integration of molecular modeling. Provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the concepts and techniques of computer modeling.
The FREE electronic modeling kit CD packaged with each new text gives students hands-on familiarity with molecular models.
The author and publisher partnered with Wavefunction Inc. to give students a special version of the same modeling software used by the author (Spartan), providing an unparalleled opportunity for application of text content by students.
Icons in the text point to appropriate assignments of modeling exercises, and the author has added problems throughout the text that capitalize on the powers of modeling.
New animations, developed by the author and Wavefunction Inc., visually demonstrate the key reactions in the text, helping students to break down and internalize difficult concepts.
Compelling new art program. The author himself created more than 200 full-color figures using Spartan modeling software. Each figure provides students with vivid, information-rich renditions of molecules that reinforce concepts.
Complete update of spectroscopy (Chapter 13) featuring all-new 200 MHz NMR spectra. The author presents more than 40 new spectra carefully selected to expand on students' understanding of organic molecules and to teach them the mathematical concepts behind shielding, coupling, and complex splitting patterns in NMR spectra. This presentation illustrates Carey's effective balance between theory and practice.
New Section Summaries. Carey now divides the summary by section number from the chapter and has added considerable visual material to provide students with a useful "digest" with which they can view and review chapter content efficiently.
Increased use of biorganic examples and applications. Where appropriate, the author links the organic to the biological. For example, in Chapter 7, biological oxidation of stearic acid is used in the summary of the stereo selective reaction.
Comprehensive On-Line Learning Center. Interactive text-specific web site presents a wealth of exclusive tools and applications, including on-line quizzing, molecular modeling activities and resources, additional problem solving guides, and numerous practice exercises.
Reaction mechanisms are stressed but within a functional group format. This approach divides the material into closely related units of manageable size. Mechanistic discussions are accessible to the student by presenting the individual steps of a reaction as a series of equations with commentary.
Reactions are illustrated with real examples taken from chemical literature. In addition to providing some feeling for how reactions are carried out, this approach allows the student to see a variety of structural types and to practice identifying functional units in complex molecules.
Summary tables help students organize material. Functional group chapters contain several types of summary tables. Typically they include a table that recalls reactions from previous chapters, which lead to the functional group encountered in earlier chapters and conclude with summaries of those new preparative procedures and reactions introduced in the chapter.
Includes numerous problems, many new to this edition, both within and at the end of each chapter. Multipart problems within a chapter are always accompanied by a sample solution which describes the thought process that leads to the answer.
Special interest essays and marginal notes. Provides students with a combination of historical perspectives and additional insight into the contemporary relevance of organic chemistry. A new essay on "Methane and the Biosphere" is one such example.
