Summary: With more than twenty-five years of teaching experience, Professor Loudon understands where students most often encounter roadblocks. This edition includes many learning aids designed to help develop a true understanding of organic reactivity. Organic Chemistry continues to provide clear and accurate explanations of the material, incorporating examples that use a wide range of interesting environmental, biological, and industrial applications.

- Paired problems encourage understanding of answers rather than passive memorization. Asterisks identify problems that are answered in the Study Guide/Solutions Manual. These questions are then followed by a closely related problem of equal or lesser difficulty for which the answer is not provided. If the student understands the problem with the answer, he or she should be able to solve the problem without the answer.
- A mechanistic approach with an early emphasis on acid-base chemistry, particularly Lewis acid-base chemistry and the associated curved-arrow formalism, helps students understand and predict organic reactivity rather than just memorize facts.
- Worked-out study problems set apart from the main text, show problem-solving techniques and ways to apply important principles.
- Study guide links are margin notes that refer students to special sections in the Study Guide/Solutions Manual. These sections offer additional help for understanding especially difficult concepts or show more detailed solutions to certain types of problems.
