Curved Arrow Press

We are a new company specializing in the field of organic chemistry. Our first publication is a guided inquiry organic chemistry workbook. This workbook is designed to be an ancillary to a two semester organic chemistry course.

We have consolidated our experience in teaching organic chemistry with how our brains think and created a new teaching paradigm. We have created a multi-tiered, example-based workbook in which students can solve ALL of our mechanism problems. They are solved by logic. Then, as a problem is repeated, students build problem solving skills.

Update, we have also released a different version of A Guide to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms, with Conventional Curved Arrows.

New, we have just completed A Handbook of Organic Chemistry Mechanisms. While the other books focussed on teaching students how to learn organic chemistry, this book serves as a condensed mechanism reference. We have worked diligently to adapt this book from the other books. The result is an improved flow of ideas from the examples tied to the chemical principles. The list price is $19.95, but you may find a substantial discount at Amazon.com. You may also buy it from Curved Arrow Press for $14.95 including shipping.
