Product Description

Master organic chemistry with the help of this proven bestseller! John McMurry''s Organic Chemistry is consistently praised as the most clearly written book available for the course. In John McMurry''s words: "I wrote this book because I love writing. I get great pleasure and satisfaction from taking a complicated subject, turning it around until I see it clearly from a new angle, and then explaining it in simple words." Through his lucid writing and ability to show the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, McMurry makes learning enjoyable. The highest compliment that can be given to a chemistry book applies to McMurry: It works!

About This Edition

From the Publisher

The most trusted and best-selling text for organic chemistry just got better! Updated with the latest developments, expanded with more end-of-chapter problems, and reorganized to cover stereochemistry earlier, the leading online homework and learning system for chemistry, John McMurry''s Organic Chemistry continues to set the standard for the course. The eighth edition also retains McMurry''s hallmark qualities: comprehensive, authoritative, and clear. McMurry has developed a reputation for crafting precise and accessible texts that speak to the needs of instructors and students. More than a million students worldwide from a full range of universities have mastered organic chemistry through his trademark style, while instructors at hundreds of colleges and universities have praised his approach time and time again.


New Features

  • 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 multi-step reactions and the update of all bond dissociation energies in Chapter 6 helps students to better understand this fundamental topic.

  • 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.

Review

"I believe the text''s main strength is its strong connection to biology, biochemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry and that this is a direction I would like to move our course. Also, establishing relevance to the world of student''s is crucial and this text does a very good job in this area." - Stephen Godleski, The College at Brockport, SUNY

"McMurry is very clearly organized. Students find it readable, which is a remarkable accomplishment. The McMurry text has excellent problems and connects well to students interested in the biochemical and medicinal applications of organic chemistry. Although different from most other texts on the market, the introduction of alkene and alkyne reactions prior to substitution/elimination reactions is easily manageable, and in fact simpler, thus providing a smooth entry into organic reactions for new students. McMurry has excellent spectra and makes good use of color. Theelectrostatic potential maps are helpful at times."- Ernest G. Nolen, Colgage University

This textbook is readable, and has some useful reaction summaries at the end of each chapter. I was able to attain the 7th Ed for much cheaper, and I would highly recommend doing the same because after comparing the 2 side-by-side... In addition, during class lectures the professor frequently pointed out errors in the book''s diagrams/pictures...which again made me feel comfortable returning the book to amazon for the 7th Ed.

Amazon did a great job fulfilling the initial order, and the return process was simple/fast.

This book is very pretty and has some nice pictures and explanations, but some of it was really hard to follow. I did excellent in General Chemistry but trying to keep up with some of the explanations was really challenging for me. Perhaps it was just the material, but I found the professor''s explanations more useful than the text (usually it is the other way around for me), though the text was a good supplement. If you are taking Organic Chemistry, I would recommend working through Organic Chemistry as a Second Language before you start the term. You''ll find it much easier to keep up in class.

Great book for Ochem 1

Needed this book for Ochem 1 and it has been good help, but not the best when it comes to explaining different scenarios. I wish it when more into detail on the Kj of different Newman projections.

Good book for beginners
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2016
Good book for beginners, for advanced students I would recommend the Clayden. The kindle price is ok, the price for the hardcover is not justified. I think the book does a good job teaching the subject, but it is not as rich and intellectually entertaining as the Clayden.

Very good condition as my book had no torn pages, ink splots, misprints or any other issues, well so far haha, and when comparing it to the price of this book new or from another site it was overall a nice deal. Although I am aware the newest addition is out, this book is pretty much the same, and could definitely be used interchangeably, or if yoh want to aquire a better Organic Chemsitru knowledge or need it for your office this would be more than insightful.

I am half-way through my first semester of organic chemistry and am so frustrated with this textbook. The author does a very poor job of explaining the logic behind each mechanisms. There are illustrations in the text, but they are pretty basic. The writing style is also incredibly dry, and the practice problems are nowhere near the level of difficulty needed for mastery. One other thing I don''t understand about the text is why he repeatedly uses the CH3CH2CH2CH2=CH3 format for molecular structure rather than consistently using bond-line drawings.

You may not have high expectations for organic chemistry textbooks, but I picked up David Klein''s textbook (everybody in my class was already using his paperback text, Organic Chemistry as a Second Language, to supplement our assigned textbook, McMurray), and found a world of difference. The illustrations are not only helpful, but beautiful. The writing is clear, concise, and easy to read; the mechanisms are clearly explained and in some cases, formatted into helpful diagrams. He even makes an effort to relate organic chemistry to medicine, recognizing that may people take this class because it is a pre-med requirement. The medical applications of molecular structure captured my attention and made me actually want to read the text.

My advice is, if you are assigned McMurray, rent it, because you will have to use it for class. But if you find it insufficient, consider at least downloading a sample of Klein''s textbook (which is also much cheaper than McMurray). Klein makes a strong and clear case for why you should not have to rely on rote memorization for this course, and should instead be able to reason through problems if you understand WHY each mechanism takes place.

UPDATE: I''m a little further into the course and we''ve reached chapter 11 of McMurray. My dismay with this text continues to grow as I''m starting to realize that it is so poorly organized. Chapters 8-10 present a series of mechanisms briefly, giving the impression that the only way to learn this subject is via rote memorization of reactants, solvents, reagents, and stereo- and regiochemistry. THEN in chapter 11, the actual TYPES of reactions are given... Chapter 11 should precede chapter 8!
