The Winner is Announced!
Congratulations to Joanna
Puszka at CU, Denver for finding the following error, which required both
perception and understanding:
Page 310, Example 10.2: The
energy diagram at the bottom of the page is correct, but the corresponding
pictures of the sp3 and 1s orbitals, above and below the diagram, should be
flipped around. Right now it seems as though the sp3 orbital belongs to the
hydrogen atom and the 1s orbital belongs to the carbon atom. It should
actually be reversed, with the 1s orbital on the side with hydrogen and the
sp3 orbital on the side with the carbon atom.
We also wish to thank all the professors and students who
class tested our pre-publication electronic edition of Organic
Chemistry, Second Edition, and the accompanying Solutions
Manual by Thomas Sorrell.
