Summary: Written for the short course where content must be thorough, but to-the-point, FUNDAMENTALS OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, Sixth Edition, continues to provide an effective, clear, and readable introduction to the beauty and logic of organic chemistry. McMurry presents only those subjects needed for a brief course while maintaining the important pedagogical tools commonly found in larger books. With clear explanations, thought-provoking examples, and an innovative vertical for
mat for explaining reaction mechanisms, FUNDAMENTALS takes a modern approach: primary organization is by functional group, beginning with the simple (alkanes) and progressing to the more complex. Within the primary organization, there is also an emphasis on explaining the fundamental mechanistic similarities of reactions. Through this approach, memorization is minimized and understanding is maximized. The sixth edition brings in new content that applies organic chemistry to students, for example all of the chapter openers have been changed and incorporate a model and photograph of an application of organic chemistry such as Taxol from the pacific yew tree.

John E. McMurry received his B.A. from Harvard University and his Ph.D. at Columbia University. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and an Alfred P. Sloan Research Foundation Fellow. He has received several awards, which include the National Institutes of Health Career Development Award, the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award, and the Max Planck Research Award. In addition to ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, he is also the author or coauthor of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY: A BIOLOGICAL APPROACH, FUNDAMENTALS OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, THE ORGANIC CHEMISTRY OF BIOLOGICAL PATHWAYS.
A new co-author, Eric Simanek of Texas A&M University, has expertise in both biochemistry and organic chemistry. Dr. Simanek received his B.S. Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard University, where his advisor was George M. Whitesides. He was most recently featured in the Journal of Chemical Education's October edition with an article on dendrimers. Dendrimers are polymers named for trees that show snowflake-like perfection. In 2000, Eric's group introduced dendrimers based on melamine. These architectures are unique in a variety of ways and subsequent reports from his group have addressed synthetic aspects of these architectures. He is also involved in improving science education the state of Texas.
