The Sixth Edition of a classic in organic chemistry continues its tradition of excellence

Now in its sixth edition, March's Advanced Organic Chemistry remains the gold standard in organic chemistry. Throughout its six editions, students and chemists from around the world have relied on it as an essential resource for planning and executing synthetic reactions.

The Sixth Edition brings the text completely current with the most recent organic reactions. In addition, the references have been updated to enable readers to find the latest primary and review literature with ease.

Each successive edition of March's continues to garner international praise. Here is what one reviewer said of the Fifth Edition:

"The book remains a tremendous value for the money . . . more pages per buck than most other texts . . . so it will remain a firm favorite as a general organic text and an easy-to-use one-volume reference . . . it will undoubtedly appear in all organic chemistry libraries and probably on many chemists' personal bookshelves too."
--Organic Process Research & Development

The Sixth Edition carries on the tradition of excellence with such new features as: More than 25,000 references to the literature to facilitate further researchRevised mechanisms, where required, that explain concepts in clear modern termsRevisions and updates to each chapter to bring them all fully up to date with the latest reactions and discoveriesA revised Appendix B to facilitate correlating chapter sections with synthetic transformations
