Solomons′ Organic Chemistry – Solomons, Fryhle & Synder′s tradition of excellence in teaching and preparing students for success in the organic classroom and beyond is continued in Global Edition. The book makes it possible for students to learn organic chemistry well and to see the marvelous ways that organic chemistry touches our lives on a daily basis. Adding to on–going pedagogical strengths, here are a few new features:

  • Improved presentation of the chemistry of benzene rings by streamlining and redistribution of content of chapter : Phenols and Aryl Halides
  • New chapter on Transition Metal Organometallic Complexes
  • Reorganized nucleophilic substitution and elimination topics
  • Enhanced focus on the practicalities of spectroscopy
  • Synthesizing the Material: new end of chapter problems

New To This Edition

WileyPLUS is now equipped with an adaptive learning module called ORION. Based on cognitive science, WileyPLUS with ORION, provides students with a personal, adaptive learning experience so they can build their proficiency on topics and use their study time most effectively. WileyPLUS with ORION helps students learn by learning about them. WileyPLUS with ORION for Organic Chemistry 12e also features new conceptual practice exercises and support for students including

  • Interactive concept map exercises
  • Interactive summary of reactions exercises
  • Interactive mechanism review exercises
  • Video walkthroughs of key mechanisms by the authors

In response to market feedback, the authors have improved the current presentation of the chemistry of benzene rings by moving Ch 21, Phenols and Aryl Halides after Ch15, Reactions of Aromatic Compounds. Other 12e revisions include

  • Synthesizing the Material: new end of chapter problems that requires the student to use synthesis methods across chapters
  • New Transition Metal Chemistry chapter located after the Ch20, Chemistry of Amines

The Wiley Advantage
WileyPLUS is a research–based online environment for effective teaching and learning. WileyPLUS has robust interactive study tools and resources–including the complete online textbook–to give your students more value for their money. With WileyPLUS, students will be provided with unique study strategies, tools, and support based on learning styles for success in Organic Chemistry.
