Renowned for its student-friendly writing style and fresh perspective, this fully updated Third Edition of John McMurry's ORGANIC CHEMISTRY WITH BIOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS provides full coverage of the foundations of organic chemistry--enhanced by biological examples throughout. In addition, McMurry discusses the organic chemistry behind biological pathways. New problems, illustrations, and essays have been added. Media integration with OWL for Organic Chemistry, a customizable online learning system and assessment tool, reduces faculty workload, facilitates instruction, and helps students master concepts through tutorials, simulations, and algorithmically-generated homework questions.

"I find it superior at providing a better bridge to biochemistry with its in-depth discussions at the end of the text as well as the integration of biological and biochemical issues throughout the text. I really appreciate the text's integration of biochemical concepts. It does a really nice job at explaining the organic chemistry basis of many biochemical reactions. Many students who take this course are in the pre-health programs, and biochemistry is highly recommended. The book will serve the student well at assisting him/her to better understand the chemistry behind biology."
"The book is excellent. I think Professor McMurry took a real chance in writing a book that was so different from the texts considered to be mainstream, such as the books by Carey or Solomons."
