Summary

DIGITAL UPDATE available for Fall 2020 classes
The Pearson eText and Mastering have been updated to provide new author-written content that helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

For courses in Organic Chemistry (2-Semester)


Understand and Apply the Foundations of Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry  provides students with the conceptual foundations, chemical logic, and problem-solving skills they need to reason their way to solutions for diverse problems in synthetic organic chemistry, biochemistry, and medicine. The text builds a strong framework for thinking about organic chemistry by unifying principles of reactivity, helping students to understand and apply learning rather than relying on memorization. Dr. Bruice consistently relates structure and reactivity to what occurs in our own cells, providing a practical base for abstract concepts. 


Pearson eText allows educators to easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class — motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Portable access lets students study on the go, even offline. And, student usage analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction.

NOTE: This ISBN is for the Pearson eText access card. For students purchasing this product from an online retailer, Pearson eText is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content and should only be purchased when required by your instructor. In addition to your purchase, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson eText.

Author Biography

After graduating from the Girls’ Latin School in Boston, Paula Bruice earned an A.B. from Mount Holyoke College and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Virginia. She then received an NIH postdoctoral fellowship for study in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Virginia Medical School and held a postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Pharmacology at Yale Medical School. Paula has been a member of the faculty at the University of California, Santa Barbara since 1972, where she has received the Associated Students Teacher of the Year Award, the Academic Senate Distinguished Teaching Award, two Mortar Board Professor of the Year Awards, and the UCSB Alumni Association Teaching Award.
