INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMISTRY, Sixth Edition provides students with a solid foundation of the chemistry of the human body. The new edition allows for a more flexible approach by breaking up topics into separate chapters, while remaining just as readable and understandable as past editions. It highlights the currency of chemistry as a developing science.


  • NEW! Each new text is accompanied by a General, Organic, and Biochemistry CD-ROM featuring interactive tutorials in general chemistry, 3-dimensional organic molecules, and biochemistry animations.
  • NEW! The new edition features a separate glossary. Each defined term is accompanied by section numbers that guide students to corresponding text material.
  • NEW! "Reading the Labels," a new type of problem integrated throughout the text reinforces critical skills.
  • NEW! Over 25% of the problems in the text are new, including an increased number of more challenging problems.
  • Numerous medical and chemical applications are featured throughout the text as well as those related to the environment. Many of these applications are featured in boxes, which provides instructors the flexibility to pick and choose material for a one-term course.
  • Answers to all in-text problems and to odd-numbered end-of-chapter problems are provided at the end of the book.
  • The text features a great amount of molecular artwork to visually reinforce student understanding.
  • Conceptual problems are found at the end of every chapter.

Author Bio

Bettelheim, Frederick A. : Adelphi University

Frederick A. Bettelheim is a Distinguished University Research Professor at Adelphi University, and a Visiting Scientist at the National Eye Institute. He has co-authored every edition of Introduction to General, Organic & Biochemistry and several laboratory manuals, including Laboratory Experiments for General, Organic & Biochemistry and Experiments for Introduction to Organic Chemistry. He is the author of Experimental Physical Chemistry and co-author of numerous monographs and research articles. Professor Bettelheim received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis, and his areas of specialization have included biochemistry of proteins and carbohydrates and physical chemistry of polymers. He was Fulbright Professor at the Weizman Institute, Israel, and Visiting Professor at University of Uppsala, Sweden, Technion, Israel, and University of Florida. He is keynote lecturer at the 16th International Conference on Chemical Education, August 2000, in Budapest Hungary. His lecture topic is Modern Trends in Teaching Chemistry to Nurses and Other Health-Related Professionals.

Brown, William H. : Beloit College

William H. Brown, a new co-author for the sixth edition of Introduction to General, Organic & Biochemistry, is Professor of Chemistry at Beloit College, where he has twice been named Teacher of the Year. He is also the author two best-selling undergraduate texts, Introduction to Organic Chemistry, 2/e and Organic Chemistry, 2/e. His regular teaching responsibilities include organic chemistry, advanced organic chemistry, and special topics in pharmacology and drug synthesis. He is the leader of a team revising the organic material in the upcoming Encyclopaedia Britannica CD-ROM. Professor Brown received his Ph.D. from Columbia University under the direction of Gilbert Stork and did postdoctoral work at California Institute of Technology and the University of Arizona.

March, Jerry :

Jerry March was the co-author of Introduction to General, Organic & Biochemistry for the first five editions. He was the sole author of a best-selling advanced organic text, now in its fifth edition, and it has been translated into many languages including Russian and Japanese. He was a member of the Physical Organic Chemistry Commission of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, and as such was instrumental in the development of several nomenclature systems. Professor March received his Ph.D. at Pennsylvania State University, and was a professor of chemistry at Adelphi University, specializing in organic chemistry.
