This website gives users the chance to learn more about the mechanisms of the many named organic reactions which exist in the realm of Chemistry.
The users need to do each step by themselves through interactive curly arrow pushing, with the help of some hints, in a totally different learning process compared to an ordinary textbook.
Each reaction can be printed out for reference after being drawn out successfully, and notes about many of the reactions are available to add to a users chemical understanding of the process. There are also links to related journals on the notes page of each reaction. Access to journals is subject to subscription to the relevant publisher. This is generally held by most universities.
