Organic Reactions® is a comprehensive reference work that contains authoritative, critical reviews of many important synthetic reactions. In addition to detailed discussions of the mechanism, scope, and limitations of reactions, OR chapters contain a tabular survey of all known examples of organic reactions to date. Exhaustive synthesis and analysis of primary literature examples sets Organic Reactions apart from comparable secondary references for organic chemistry. Here, you will find condensed versions of Organic Reactions chapters and links to full versions of the chapters. Feel free to browse the wiki reaction pages, full chapters, or type a reaction into the search box above.
Organic Reactions exclusively uses ChemDraw and requires its use for all chapters. A variety of animated GIFs featuring tips and tricks for the latest versions of ChemDraw and ChemOffice can be found here.
The wiki pages here are based on Organic Reactions
