Solomons' Organic Chemistry has a strong legacy (over 50 years) of tried and true content. The authors are known for striking a balance between the theory and practice of organic chemistry. In this new edition special attention is paid towards helping students learn how to put the various pieces of organic chemistry together in order to solve problems. The notion of a "puzzle", or understanding how different molecules react together to create products, is a focus of the authors’ pedagogy. A central theme of the authors' approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the content is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms. The authors' philosophy is to emphasize mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, and at the same time, use the unifying features of functional groups as the basis for most chapters. The structural aspects of the authors' approach show students what organic chemistry is. Mechanistic aspects of their approach show students how it works.

Besser Konzepte und Ideen der organischen Chemie verstehen, als eine Vielzahl von Fakten auswendig beherrschen! Diesem Motto bleibt der "Vollhardt/Schore" auch in der neuesten Auflage treu. Das neu gestaltete Layout, beispielhaft gelöste Übungsaufgaben und die deutlich erweiterten Verständnisübungen führen einprägsam an die Methodik zur Lösung organisch-chemischer Probleme heran. So werden nicht nur die stofflichen Grundlagen der organischen Chemie, sondern auch das "Gewusst wie" fast schon spielerisch vermittelt. Nicht nur für Chemiestudenten, auch für Biochemiker, Pharmazeuten, Biologen und Mediziner ist der "Vollhardt/Schore" der fachliche Grundstock für die organische Chemie.

To the Student As you begin your study of organic chemistry, you might feel overwhelmed by the number of compounds, names, reactions, and mechanisms that confront you. You might even wonder whether you can learn all this material in a single year. The most important function of a textbook is to organize the material to show that most of organic chemistry consists of a few basic principles and many extensions and applications of these principles. Relatively little memorization is required if you grasp the major concepts and develop flexibility in applying those concepts. Frankly, I have a poor memory, and I hate memorizing lists of information. I don’t remember the specifics of most of the reactions and mechanisms in this book, but I can work them out by remembering a few basic principles, such as “alcohol dehydrations usually go by E1 mechanisms.” Still, you’ll have to learn some facts and fundamental principles to serve as the working “vocabulary” of each chapter. As a student, I learned this the hard way when I made a D on my second organic chemistry exam. I thought organic would be like general chemistry, where I could memorize a couple of equations and fake my way through the exams. For example, in the ideal gas chapter, I would memorize PV nRT, and I was good to go. When I tried the same approach in organic, I got a D. We learn by making mistakes, and I learned a lot in organic chemistry. In writing this book, I’ve tried to point out a small number of important facts and principles that should be learned to prepare for solving problems. For example, of the hundreds of reaction mechanisms shown in this book, about 20 are the fundamental mechanistic steps that combine into the longer, more complicated mechanisms. I’ve highlighted these fundamental mechanisms in Key Mechanism boxes to alert you to their importance. Spectroscopy is another area where a student might feel pressured to memorize hundreds of facts, such as NMR chemical shifts and infrared vibration frequencies. I couldn’t do that, so I’ve always gotten by with knowing about a dozen NMR chemical shifts and about a dozen IR vibration frequencies, and knowing how they are affected by other influences. I’ve listed those important infrared frequencies in Table 12-2 and the important NMR chemical shifts in Table 13-3. Don’t try to memorize your way through this course. It doesn’t work; you have to know what’s going on so you can apply the material. Also, don’t think (like I did) that you can get by without memorizing anything. Read the chapter, listen carefully to the lectures, and work the problems. The problems will tell you whether or not you know the material. If you can do the problems, you should do well on the exams. If you can’t do the problems, you probably won’t be able to do the exams, either. If you keep having to look up an item to do the problems, that item is a good one to learn. Here are some hints I give my students at the beginning of the course: 1. Read the material in the book before the lecture (expect 13–15 pages per lecture). Knowing what to expect and what is in the book, you can take fewer notes and spend more time listening and understanding the lecture. 2. After the lecture, review your notes and the book, and do the in-chapter problems. Also, read the material for the next lecture. 3. If you are confused about something, visit your instructor during office hours immediately, before you fall behind. Bring your attempted solutions to problems with you to show the instructor where you are having trouble. 4. To study for an exam, begin by reviewing each chapter and your notes, then concentrate on the end-of-chapter problems. Also use old exams for practice, if available. Many students find that working in a study group and posing problems for each other is particularly helpful. Remember the two “golden rules” of organic chemistry. 1. Don’t Get Behind! The course moves too fast, and it’s hard to catch up. 2. Work Lots of Problems. Everyone needs the practice, and the problems show where you need more work. I am always interested to hear from students using this book. If you have any suggestions about how the book might be made better, or if you’ve found an error, please let me know (L. G.

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY is a student-friendly, cutting edge introduction for chemistry, health, and the biological sciences majors. In the Eighth Edition, award-winning authors build on unified mechanistic themes, focused problem-solving, applied pharmaceutical problems and biological examples. Stepwise reaction mechanisms emphasize similarities among mechanisms using four traits: breaking a bond, making a new bond, adding a proton, and taking a proton away. Pull-out organic chemistry reaction roadmaps designed stepwise by chapter help students devise their own reaction pathways. Additional features designed to ensure student success include in-margin highlighted integral concepts, new end-of-chapter study guides, and worked examples.
