Retaining the concise, to-the-point presentation that has already helped thousands of students move beyond memorization to a true understanding of the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, this Seventh Edition of John McMurry's FUNDAMENTALS OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY brings in new, focused content that shows students how organic chemistry applies to their everyday lives. In addition, redrawn chemical structures and artwork help students visualize important chemical concepts, a greater emphasis on biologically-related chemistry (including new problems) helps them grasp the enormous importance of organic chemistry in understanding the reactions that occur in living organisms, and new End ofChapter problems keyed to OWL allow them to work text-specific problems online. Lastly, for this edition, John McMurry reevaluated and revised his writing at the sentence level to ensure that the book's explanations, applications, and examples are more student-friendly, relevant, and motivating than ever before.

Industry Reviews

"We have found the McMurry texts to be unique in their utility for our two cycle approach and we are able to efficiently service two groups of students with different needs. For these reasons, we have been satisfied and have seen no reason for change." Robert Cameron, Samford University
"Chapter 9 is well organized and includes an appropriate selection of material given the overall topic. The in-chapter problems are well chosen and presented in a timely manner. The illustrations are helpful and there are lots of end-of-chapter problems for students to work." Steven Holmgren, Montana State University
"Chapter 17 is an excellent chapter.... It seems as though the author has a particular fondness for this topic that shows in his thoughtful and entertaining handling of the subject matter. The use of color to help students follow the transfer of atoms and pieces of molecules during catalytic reactions in this chapter is very effective. The author is also commended for his frequent reminders to the reader that these biological processes are comprised of organic reactions that they have studied earlier in the book." Alvan C. Hengge, Utah State University
