Helps student move beyond memorisation.  The Fifth Edition of Organic Chemistry is written to support all kinds of learners-whether students read the book, or use it as a reference. New “Visualise, Understand, Draw” sections help students draw molecules well, visualise how they are formed, and understand why reactions occur. The Fifth Edition has been revised to be more accessible, with a focus on the basics and more opportunities for problem-solving practice, while the robust media package helps students visualise organic chemistry.

 Written and designed by expert teachers.  Steven A. Fleming and Maitland Jones have more than fifty years combined experience teaching organic chemistry. They know how to get students to think about and understand each concept, and build student confidence in solving problems. The authors employ a conversational writing style that is authoritative, instructive, and interesting to read.

 Media resources give students more opportunities for visualisation.  Organic Reaction Animations (ORA), now online, is a compilation of more than fifty organic reactions whose pathways have been calculated and animated to help students visualise the events that occur in the most important organic reactions. Each reaction is represented in 4 ways:

  • Ball-and-stick model
  • Space-filling model
  • Ball-and-stick with the HOMO superimposed
  • Ball-and-stick with the LUMO superimposed

ORA is integrated into the text with icons identifying each reaction and also includes tutorials on the reactions themselves. Students can test their understanding by solving the ORA Problems that are found at the end of most chapters.  Every copy of the text includes an access code to ORA, the e-book, and SmartWork.
