Summary: Clear, concise, and manageable--Fessenden and Fessenden's text has earned a reputation, through five previous editions, as an organic chemistry text that students learn from and enjoy. Described by users as "the masters of the short sentence," the authors offer a superb teaching text, renowned for clear and succinct coverage and masterful selection of topics. The authors provide a clear organization of functional groups according to sigma-bonding and pi-bon moreding to provide a conceptually clear and efficient context that helps students understand the overall content of organic chemistry.

  • Approximately 400 in-chapter study problems (with answers in the back of the book) and 800 end-of-chapter problems relevant to current research reinforce text concepts and skills. Many are new to this edition.
  • Students receive access to InfoTrac College Edition--a fully searchable online university library that offers full articles from more than 600 scholarly and popular publications, including such periodicals as Discover, Science World, and American Health. InfoTrac College Edition access is available on a password-protected Web Site that is updated daily.
  • Included with the text is Paul Young's Organic Chemistry OnLine CD-ROM. The CD features structure and bonding, stereochemistry, nomenclature, reactions, and synthesis. Each module contains numerous interactive problems and state-of-the-art three-dimensional graphics. Also included is a library of descriptive information and structural data for 50 common organic molecules.
  • Essay problems (some modeled after those on the MCAT exam) conclude each chapter.
  • Worked-out sample problems (many new to this edition) provide a model for problem An "Additional Problems" section (with many new problems) provides more thought-provoking problems.
  • The Sixth Edition remains one of the only books that students can complete, cover to cover, in two semesters.
  • Core topics for the course appear in Chapters 1-18; more advanced and biochemical topics are covered in Chapters 19-26.
  • Essential information in each chapter is covered in the earlier sections, leaving more optional material for the later sections.
  • Dynamic four-color artwork (much that is new to this edition) is used selectively to enhance the book's effectiveness as a teaching tool.
  • The authors have expanded their coverage of spectra in the new edition.

"Eminently appropriate for our students. The organization of this text is not matched by any other that I have seen. . . . Only Fessenden proceeds logically from sigma-bond chemistry to non-polar pi-bond chemistry to aromatic pi-bond chemistry and then to polar pe-bond chemistry. This organization is the result of an insight few, if any, authors have had." less
