This innovative book takes a mechanistic approach to organic chemistry -- i.e., it focuses on the mechanisms of chemical reactions rather than on rote memorization of functional groups -- and provides accessible coverage without compromising the chemistry. Accompanied by Organic Matter: The Visual Presentation Resource -- a visual archive CD-ROM with lab demonstrations, animations of reactions, over 300 molecular illustrations, and version 3.0 of Presentation Manager. Balances coverage of traditional topics with bioorganic chemistry (with unique coverage such topics the organic chemistry of drugs, mechanisms of coenzymes, and catalysis). Integrates real-world applications and human interest topics (e.g., Making Soap, Buckyballs and AIDS, the Concorde and Ozone Depletion, Peyote Cults, and Lactose Intolerance).
