Based on the U.S. text Organic Chemistry: A Brief Course, this edition continues to guide a diverse group of organic chemistry students by selectively revealing the logic of organic chemistry through carefully designed organization, pedagogy, problem solving, and illustrations.
A text that is both modern in outlook and selective in coverage, this edition is further enhanced by the introduction of the following:
•Molecular orbital theory which emphasizes the visual understanding of chemical bonds and reactions.
•Curved-arrow notation which illustrates how organic reactions occur in terms of the movement of electrons.
•The topic of stereochemistry early in the book so that the students have a better grasp of the concept of organic compounds in three-dimensional structures and methods of interconversion.
•Chapter previews to aid students’ revision prior to examinations.

Robert C. Atkins was born in Massachusetts and educated in New Jersey. He received an S.B. in chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1966 and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1970. Following a year of postdoctoral study at Columbia University he was appointed to the faculty of James Madison University, where he holds the rank of professor of chemistry. He is the author of Study Guide to Accompany Chemistry; Principles and Applications (McGraw-Hill, 1979) and the co-author (with Professor Carey) of Study Guide and Solutions Manual to Accompany Organic Chemistry (McGraw-Hill, 2000).
Professor Atkins has done research in the area of pyrolysis reaction mechanisms. He also has an active interest in laboratory safety and has served for more than 25 years as his department’s safety coordinator. Since 1985 Professor Atkins has also volunteered as a technical advisor to both a local and a regional hazardous materials team.
Francis A. Carey es un nativo de Pennsylvania, educado en las escuelas públicas de Filadelfia, en la Universidad de Drexel (BS en Química, 1959), y la Universidad Estatal de Pensilvania (Ph.D. 1963). Tras el trabajo postdoctoral en la Universidad de Harvard y el servicio militar, fue nombrado a la facultad de química de la Universidad de Virginia en 1966 Antes de retirarse en 2000, enseñó regularmente los cursos de conferencias de dos semestres en la química general y química orgánica. Con sus alumnos, el profesor Carey ha publicado más de cuarenta artículos de investigación en química orgánica sintética y mecanicista. Además de este texto, que es coautor (con Robert C. Atkins) de Química Orgánica: Un Curso Breve y (con Richard J. Sundberg) de Advanced Organic Chemistry, un tratamiento de dos volúmenes diseñado para estudiantes graduados y estudiantes universitarios avanzados. Fue miembro del Comité de Examinadores de El Graduate Record Examination en Química 1993-2000. Frank y su esposa Jill, que es maestra / directora de un jardín de infantes y un organista de la iglesia, son los padres de Andy, Bob y Bill y los abuelos de Riyad y Ava.
Chi Wi Ong is a Malaysian who received his B.Sc. (Hons) in Chemistry and Pharmacology from the University of Liverpool in 1979 and Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge England in 1982. Following a one-year post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Alberta, Canada, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the National Sun Yat Sen University in Taiwan where he holds the rank of Professor in chemistry. He has taught courses in organic and advanced organic chemistry for nearly 30 years. His teaching has been highly recognized by the students and university, and he has been elected to serve as a “mentor” to the younger faculty members.
Professor Ong is also actively involved in research and has published nearly a hundred papers in synthetic, medicinal and material chemistry. He is also active in serving the industrial community in Taiwan. He is the Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry since 2010.
