If you are visiting this site and are presently studying organic chemistry, you should first check out the Organic Reaction Summaries and Quizzes - I guarantee they will help you.

Some of the links below lead to Adobe Acrobat, or *.pdf, files. You can download a free Adobe Acrobat Reader if you do not already have it. This software is quite benign - I have never heard of anyone having problems with it. Others require Chemscape Chime from MDLI to rotate molecular models on line in three dimensions; for more information, links to sources of Chime and sources of drawing programs for organic chemistry, see the Web Sites page. These programs open automatically when you click on the file that needs them.
