Organic Chemistry 8th Edition Pdf Book Description:

The guiding principle behind this book is to present organic chemistry as an exciting and vitally important science. To counter the impression that the study of organic chemistry consists primarily of memorizing a multitude of facts, I have organized this book around shared features and unifying concepts, while emphasizing principles that can be applied again and again. I want students to apply what they have learned to new settings and to learn how to reason their way to solutions. I also want them to see that organic chemistry is a fascinating discipline that is integral to their daily lives. This book organizes the functional groups around mechanistic similarities. When students see their first reaction (other than an acid–base reaction), they are told that all organic compounds can be divided into families and that all members of a family react in the same way. And to make things even easier, each family can be put into one of four groups, and all the families in a group react in similar ways. “Organizing What We Know About Organic Chemistry” is a feature based on these statements. It lets students see where they have been and where they are going as they proceed through each of the four groups. It also encourages them to remember the fundamental reason behind the reactions of all organic compounds: electrophiles react with nucleophiles. When students finish studying a particular group, they are given the opportunity to review the group and understand why the families came to be members of that particular group.

The four groups are covered in the following order. (However, the book is written to be modular, so they could be covered in any order.) Many organic chemistry textbooks discuss the synthesis of a functional group and the reactivity of that group sequentially, but these two groups of reactions generally have little to do with one another. Instead, when I discuss a functional group’s reactivity, I cover the synthesis of compounds that are formed as a result of that reactivity, often by having students design syntheses. In Chapter 6, for example, students learn about the reactions of alkenes, but they do not learn about the synthesis of alkenes. Instead, they learn about the synthesis of alkyl halides, alcohols, ethers, epoxides, alkanes, etc.—the compounds formed when alkenes react. The synthesis of alkenes is not covered until the reactions of alkyl halides and alcohols are discussed—compounds whose reactions lead to the synthesis of alkenes.
