Now in a new edition, this book continues its tradition of excellence in teaching and preparing students for success in the organic classroom and beyond. A central theme of the authors' approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the text is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. Emphasizing mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, this book shows students what organic chemistry is, how it works, and what it does in living systems and the physical world around us.

  • New coauthor! Scott Snyder is a well know researcher and instructor. Dr. Snyder received his PhD in 2004 from The Scripps Research Institute, working under K.C. Nicolaou. He later moved to Harvard to complete his postdoctoral fellowship, working in the lab of Professor E.J. Corey, one of the most respected contemporary chemists (and 1990 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry). Dr. Snyder brings his research into the classroom and now as coauthor, into this new edition of Organic Chemistry, 11e.
  • Solved Problems including Strategy and Answer sections that guides students in their problem solving. Many of the new Solved Problems are paired with a related Review Problems.
  • Additional in text Review Problems are included to provide students with more opportunities to check their progress as they study.
  • Many more How To sections that give step by step instructions to guide students in performing important skills appear throughout the new edition of Solomons. New How To sections include How To Name Alkanes, Alkyl Halides, and Alcohols: the IUPAC System; How To Understand Additions to Alkenes; How to Write Proper Resonance Structures; and How To Predict the Products of a Diels–AlderReaction.

•      A balanced approach -- the text organization blends features of a functional group approach with one based on reaction mechanisms. 

•      The study of mechanisms begins early in the context of acid-base chemistry. 

•      Mechanism of the Reaction boxes throughout the book explain in detail everything a student needs to know about a reaction mechanism. 

•      An emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking, key to helping students successfully meet the science and technology needs of the future.   

•      Coverage of topics in green chemistry, nanotechnology, and biochemistry to introduce students to exciting and important frontiers of organic chemistry.

•      The inclusion of "Chemistry Of" boxes present examples of biological and real-world chemistry that help students relate organic chemistry to the world around them.

•      Early introduction of infrared spectroscopy (ch. 2) to give students evidence for functional groups and structure, and supports their use of instrumentation in laboratory classes.

•      Tools such as Concept Maps, Synthetic Connections, and Mechanism Reviews summarize key information for students at the end of chapters.
