Loudon's Organic Chemistry is known for its clear writing, high standard of accuracy, and creative problems. The fifth edition contains 1,668 problems many of them new and taken directly from the scientific literature. This edition, more than ever before, encourages students to analyze and synthesize concepts. The text is used at a wide variety of schools around the world, such as Boston College, California Institute of Technology, Duke University, the University of Colorado, the University of Illinois, the University of Vermont, and Yale University.

We have used a number of editions of Loudon for our second year organic course. Although each edition has represented a major advance in the presentation of new chemistry, they have all retained the lucid presentation and order of topics that attracted us to the first version. The problems and examples provide excellent reinforcement of the contents of each chapter. The inclusion of modern methodology in the newest edition will prepare students for graduate school and demonstrates the continuing evolution of organic chemistry. --Robert H. Grubbs, California Institute of Technology
My colleagues and I have used the Loudon text here at Harvard for a number of years. The latest edition of this textbook refines the author's approach to the teaching of organic chemistry on a mechanism-based approach that was first introduced by Cram and Hammond more than 50 years ago. I consider it one of the premier texts of this generation. --David Evans, Harvard University
The fifth edition of this text continues to refine the author's characteristically elegant, mechanism-based framework for introducing organic chemistry. Professor Loudon has inspired several generations of students with his clear and insightful presentation style. In no other text does the logic, power and sheer beauty of organic chemistry shine through so clearly. --Bruce Ganem, Cornell University
Marc Loudon received his BS (magna cum laude) in chemistry in 1964 from Louisiana State University and his PhD in organic chemistry in 1968 from the University of California, Berkeley, where he worked with Professor Donald S. Noyce. After two years of postdoctoral study with Professor Daniel E. Koshland in the Biochemistry Department at Berkeley, Dr. Loudon joined the chemistry faculty at Cornell University, where he taught organic chemistry to both pre-professional students and science majors. He received the Clark Teaching Prize of Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences in 1976. Since 1977, Dr. Loudon has been Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at Purdue University. Dr. Loudon teaches organic chemistry to pharmacy and pre-pharmacy students at Purdue, where he has twice won the School of Pharmacy's Henry Heine Outstanding Teacher Award. In 1988, he received the Class of 1922 Helping Students Learn Award. In 1996, Dr. Loudon was among three faculty at Purdue who were the first to be named Distinguished Professor on the basis of teaching and teaching scholarship; as result of that award, Dr. Loudon became the Gustav Cwalina Distinguished Professor of Medicinal Chemistry. In 1999, Dr. Loudon won Purdue's university-wide Charles B. Murphy Award for undergraduate teaching and, in the same year, was listed in Purdue's permanent Book of Great Teachers; In 2000, Dr. Loudon was named Indiana Professor of the Year; by the Carnegie Foundation. In 2001, Dr. Loudon served as a member of the Chemistry Panel of BIO2010, which was commissioned by the National Academy of Sciences to make national recommendations for the biology curriculum.
