Overview

John McMurry's ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, 9th Edition continues to set the standard for the course. With his comprehensive, authoritative, and clear presentation, McMurry has developed a reputation for crafting precise and accessible resources that have helped more than a million students worldwide master organic chemistry. Instructors from hundreds of colleges and universities have praised his approach time and again. This edition is updated with more coverage of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and expanded with new mechanism problems and scientific reasoning and analysis questions. Options are available that include OWLv2, the leading online homework and learning system for chemistry.

John E. McMurry, Cornell University

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.

Created by teaching chemists, OWLv2 is a powerful online learning system for chemistry with a unique Mastery Learning approach, which allows students to practice at their own pace, receive meaningful feedback and access a variety of learning resources to help them master chemistry and achieve better grades.

  • UNIQUE COVERAGE. McMurry emphasizes organic synthesis as a teaching device to help students organize and work with the large body of factual information that makes up organic chemistry. He also offers an unusually complete treatment of the organic chemistry of nucleic acids and an integrated treatment of polymer chemistry.
  • UNIQUE "VISUALIZING CHEMISTRY" PROBLEMS. These problems challenge students to make the essential connection between typical line-bond drawings and computer-generated molecular models. "Visualizing Chemistry" problems enhance your students’ ability to bridge the gap between the microscopic level of molecules and the macroscopic level of daily life.
  • HOLISTIC OVERVIEWS. At two key points, McMurry provides an "Overview" to help students grasp the subject matter more holistically. The first "Overview" offers a review of organic mechanisms, while the second discusses the cohesiveness of carbonyl group reactions.
  • AN EXEMPLARY ARRAY OF 1,800 PROBLEMS. McMurry’s extensive end-of-chapter problem sets provide students with ample opportunity to practice and master their organic chemistry problem-solving skills.
  • PROBLEM-SOLVING FOCUS. Each chapter contains many worked out examples with "Strategy Statements" that illustrate how to solve problems. Each practice problem and solution is then followed by a similar problem for the student to solve. This provides immediate problem-solving reinforcement for the student.
