Wade presents a logical, systematic approach to understanding the principles of organic reactivity and the mechanisms of organic reactions. This approach helps students develop the problem-solving strategies and the scientific intuition they will apply throughout the course and in their future scientific work.The Eighth Edition provides enhanced and proven features in every chapter, including new Chapter Goals, Essential Problem-Solving Skills and Hints that encourage both majors and non-majors to think critically and avoid taking ""short cuts"" to solve problems. Mechanism Boxes and Key Mechanism Boxes strengthen student understanding of Organic Chemistry as a whole while contemporary applications reinforce the relevance of this science to the real world." Salient Features Wade provides greater coverage of complete mechanisms and more mechanistic questions than any other book on the market to help students predict reactions they have never seen before. 20 Key Mechanism Boxes are the fundamental mechanistic principles that recur throughout the course. They are the mechanisms that compose most of the longer, more complex mechanisms. Each Key Mechanism Box reinforces student understanding with steps and explanations that describe the reaction mechanism (how the reaction occurs), a specific example of the mechanism for reinforcement, and a concluding problem or question so students can assess their understanding. Over 150 Mechanism Boxes help students understand how reactions occur by focusing on the individual steps of each reaction. The Mechanism Boxes are shaded in blue so students can locate them easily as they thumb through the chapter. Over 1400 (mostly multi-part) problems provide immediate review and allow students to assess their understanding of what they have read in each section before moving on to the next. Problem-Solving Strategies help students break down the multitude of complex problems into simpler pieces. These strategies help students establish thoughtful methods for approaching complicated problems — like those that require proposing mechanisms and developing multi-step synthesis.
