About this book

The most trusted and best-selling text for organic chemistry just got better! Updated with the latest developments, expanded with more end-of-chapter problems, reorganized to cover stereochemistry earlier, and enhanced with OWL, the leading online homework and learning system for chemistry, John McMurry's "Organic Chemistry, 8th edition, International Edition" continues to set the standard for the course. The Eighth Edition also retains McMurry's hallmark qualities: comprehensive, authoritative, and clear. McMurry has developed a reputation for crafting precise and accessible texts that speak to the needs of instructors and students. More than a million students worldwide from a full range of universities have mastered organic chemistry through his trademark style, while instructors at hundreds of colleges and universities have praised his approach time and time again.
