External Resources

The following sites may prove useful to some students. If you find a site that you find useful (or if one of the sites here seems problematic), please let me know.

  • Master Organic Chemistry - A site by James Ashenhurst. Contains a number of study guides, review sheets, blog posts and other information. Most of this information is free, but a few resources must be purchased.
  • ChemTube3D - "ChemTube3D contains interactive 3D chemistry animations and structures, with supporting information" for a variety of reactions
  • Named Reactions - Many common organic reactions (such as Grignard reactions and the Williamson ether synthesis) are known by the name(s) of the scientist(s) who discovered them. This site by Alfa Aesar gives a brief history of many of these reactions.
