About The Solution

Overview

Reflecting Cengage Learning's commitment to offering flexible teaching solutions and value for students and instructors, these new hybrid versions feature the instructional presentation found in the printed text while delivering all the end-of-section and/or end-of chapter exercises online in OWL. The result—a briefer printed text that engages students online! Help your students improve their grades and understanding of concepts with this value-packed Hybrid Edition of John McMurry's ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, 8e. This cost-effective learning solution includes the textbook, the Cengage YouBook (a customizable, interactive eBook) and OWL, the leading online learning system for chemistry. To streamline the text and allow unlimited online practice, the end-of-chapter problems have been removed from the printed textbook, are assignable in OWL, and can be printed from the Cengage YouBook. An access code to OWL and the Cengage YouBook is included with the text providing students with powerful online resources that include tutorials, simulations, randomized homework questions, videos, an interactive electronic version of the textbook and more. The fully updated Eighth Edition blends the traditional functional group approach with a mechanistic approach to help students learn both the "what" and the "why" of Organic Chemistry with a text they can easily understand. John McMurry has developed a reputation for crafting precise and accessible texts that speak to the needs of instructors and students, and this hybrid edition continues the tradition. More than a million students worldwide from a full range of universities have mastered organic chemistry through his trademark style.


Features/Benefits

  • VERTICAL FORMAT FOR REACTION MECHANISMS. McMurry's hallmark vertical format is used to explain reaction mechanisms. The mechanisms are printed vertically while explanations of the changes taking place in each step are printed next to the reaction arrow. This allows students to easily see what is occurring at each step in a reaction without having to jump back and forth between the text and structures.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • AN EXEMPLARY ARRAY OF 1,800 PROBLEMS. McMurry's extensive problem sets provide students with ample opportunity to practice and master their organic chemistry problem-solving skills.
  • 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.
  • 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.

What's New

  • ACCESS TO THE LEADING ONLINE LEARNING SYSTEM FOR CHEMISTRY. The book comes packaged with an OWL YouBook Access Card, which allows you and your students to log in to the leading online learning system for chemistry and access a fully customizable electronic version of the text.
  • CENGAGE YOUBOOK. The YouBook is an interactive, electronic version of the complete textbook fully integrated within OWL and includes all textbook content, as well as mechanism animations, links to videos, other interactive media, and more, and makes it easy for you to create an eBook that perfectly matches your syllabus.
  • IMPROVED CHAPTER-ENDING PROBLEM ORGANIZATION. End-of-chapter problems are now grouped by type to assist professors in assigning problems and students in solving them.
  • EARLIER COVERAGE OF STEREOCHEMISTRY. Stereochemistry now appears earlier in the book (Chapter 5) to get to this important topic sooner in the course. In addition, Cahn–Ingold–Prelog sequence rules are now introduced in Section 5.5.
  • REVISED COVERAGE OF FUNDAMENTAL TOPICS. The revision of activation energies in multistep reactions and the update of all bond dissociation energies in Chapter 6 helps students to better understand this fundamental topic.
  • REVISED END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS IN OWL. The integrated OWL online learning system now includes more parameterized end-of-chapter questions, encouraging students to practice multiple questions of the same type with different chemicals, wording, and numbers to ensure their mastery of the underlying chemical concepts.
  • REVISED "FOCUS ON" BOXES. These end-of-chapter boxes now present interesting applications of organic chemistry relevant to the particular chapter.
  • UPDATED FIGURES. To better coordinate legends with art, step numbers have been added to the legends of all mechanism figures. In addition, all figure references have been more clearly keyed to illustrations via color.
  • NEW SUPPLEMENT. SPARTAN MODEL: AN ELECTRONIC MODEL KIT is now available to package with the Eighth Edition for those who want to use this advanced technology resource.
