Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Parise and Loudon's Study Guide and Solutions Manual offers the following learning aids:

 * Links that provide hints for study, approaches to problem solving, and additional explanations of challenging topics;

* Further Explorations that provide additional depth on key topics;

* Reaction summaries that delve into key mechanisms and stereochemistry;

* Solutions to all the textbook problems. Rather than providing just the answer, many of the solutions provide detailed explanations of how the problem should be approached.

Author Biography

James Parise is a Teaching Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame, where he lectures organic chemistry. Previously, he taught and coordinated organic chemistry laboratories at Duke University. Dr. Parise’s research interests include development of more effective teaching methods for large lecture courses and improving organic chemistry pedagogy in both the classroom and laboratory. He administers an instructor-training program in organic chemistry and is currently developing auxiliary courses aimed at supplementing student preparation for introductory organic courses.

Marc Loudon is the Cwalina Distinguished Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at Purdue Univerity. His teaching awards include the Clark Teaching Prize (at Cornell), Purdue’s School of Pharmacy's Henry Heine Outstanding Teacher Award (1980 and 1985), the Class of 1922 Helping Students Learn Award, the Charles B. Murphy Award, membership in the Teaching Academy of Purdue and listing in Purdue’s permanent “Book of Great Teachers”, and designation as the Carnegie Foundation “Indiana Professor of the Year”. Most recently, Dr. Loudon has been involved in chemistry curriculum re-design for life-science majors and pre-health profession students with the NEXUS program of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
