5 10 15 20 25 This Student Study Guide is a companion to the fifth edition of Organic Chemistry by William Brown, Chlistopher Foote, Brent Iverson, and Eric Anslyn. All of the problems from the text have been reprinted in this guide, so there is no need to flip back and forth between the text and the guide. Detailed, stepwise solutions to all of the problems are provided. Molecules are three-dllnensional and understanding the three-dimenSionalAy of organic chemistry is important for any student. This Student Study Guide has placed special emphasis on stereochemistry, an important aspect of three-dimensional molecular structure. Throughout the problems and answers, many of the molecules with chiral centers have the configuration explicitly denoted using wedges and dashes to indicate location in space. When the configuration is not specifically given; chiral centers are indicated by an" asterisk (*). In addition, the stereochemical outcome of every reaction is stated, whether the question calls for consideration of stereochemistry or not. . The material in this volume was reviewed for accuracy by Brent and Sheila Iverson. If y~u have any comments or questions, please direct them to Professor Brent Iverson, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas 78712.
