For two-semester courses in Organic Chemistry taken primarily by science and pre-health majors. This text, organized with a traditional functional-group approach, applies the most modern teaching and pedagogical techniques to the study of organic chemistry. In a highly accessible fashion, this top-selling text bridges the gap between conceptual understanding and actual application-while strongly emphasizing the development of problem-solving skills. Additionally, it provides up-to-date aspects of spectroscopy, relevant photographs, and many applications to polymer chemistry integrated throughout the text.Über den Autor:
L. G. "Skip" Wade decided to become a chemistry major during his sophomore ear at Rice University, while taking organic chemistry from Professor Ronald M. Magi After receiving his B.A. from Rice in 1969, Wade went on to Harvard University, ere he did research with Professor James D. White. While at Harvard, he served as the Head Teaching Fellow for the organic laboratories and was strongly influenced by the teaching methods of two master educators, Professors Leonard K. Nash and Frank H. Westheimer. After completing his Ph.D. at Harvard in 1974, Dr. Wade joined the chemistry faculty at Colorado State University. Over the course of fifteen years at Colorado State, Dr. Wade taught organic chemistry to thousands of students working toward careers in all areas of biology, chemistry, human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental studies. He also authored research papers in organic synthesis and in chemical education, as well as eleven books reviewing current research in organic synthesis. Since 1989, Dr. Wade has been a chemistry professor at Whitman College, where he teaches organic chemistry and pursues research interests in organic synthesis and forensic chemistry. Dr. Wade received the A. E. Lange Award for Distinguished Science Teaching at Whitman in 1993. Dr. Wades interest in forensic science has led him to testify as an expert witness in court cases involving drugs and firearms, and he has worked as a police firearms instructor, drug consultant, and boating safety officer. He also enjoys repairing and restoring old violins and bows, which he has done professionally for many years.
