Synthesis Explorer


Plan synthetic routes and study key organic chemistry reactions interactively with this resource. Choose from a wide range of starting compounds and react them to reveal details of the reaction (conditions, reagents used and classification). Create your own synthetic pathways and view a wide range of physical, structural and spectral data for each compound. Introduce, explore and revise organic chemistry with Synthesis Explorer.
