Organic Chemistry, 5th Edition by Maitland and Fleming :: Organic chemistry is a highly visual subject. Organic chemists think by constructing mental pictures of molecules and communicate with each other by drawing pictures. To help students develop those same skills, we have added Visualize, Understand, Draw sections in each chapter. These sections highlight an important skill or concept and break it down into these three general steps with the goal of training students to use these same steps when they are solving problems. One factor that can make organic chemistry difficult is that new language must be learned. Organic chemists talk to each other using many different conventions and at least some of that language must be learned, or communication is impossible. In addition to general treatments of nomenclature at the beginning of many chapters, we have incorporated numerous Convention Alerts in which aspects of the language that chemists use are highlighted. Throughout the book, reference is made to the connection between organic chemistry and the world of biology. Almost every chapter has a section devoted to the biological relevance of new reactions discussed. We also have Applications Boxes to illustrate the relevance of the subject to students’ lives.
