With authors who are both accomplished researchers and educators, Vollhardt and Schore’sOrganic Chemistryis proven effective for making contemporary organic chemistry accessible, introducing cutting-edge research in a fresh, student-friendly way. A wealth of unique study tools help students organize and understand the substantial information presented in this course. And in the sixth edition, the themes of understanding reactivity, mechanisms, and synthetic analysis to apply chemical concepts to realistic situations has been strengthened. New applications of organic chemistry in the life sciences, industrial practices, green chemistry, and environmental monitoring and clean-up are incorporated. This edition includes more than 100 new or substantially revised problems, including new problems on synthesis and green chemistry, and new ''challenging'' problems.
