Chemistry By Design is an interactive virtual flashcard that allows students to test their skills using known synthetic sequences. The goal is to display the reagents, starting materials and products for every single step used in constructing a natural product or pharmaceutical. Students are provided with different browsing options to test themselves.

Good Resource

This is a very good app for anyone looking to find how therapeutics or natural products are synthesized. In research, this can be used to easily learn how a certain drug is synthesized and ways you can easily modify the synthesis to generate a new compound. This is also important for teaching to show student all the different methods of constructing approved therapeutics. Thanks for the hard work!

Amazing App

I’m a chemistry graduate student and I love this app! I use it to quiz myself about organic reactions every day. It would be great if it could be updated for the larger screen of the iPhone 5. I would also love a feature that would allow the user to see which molecules/sequences were recently added!

Chemistry by Design

A wonderful app that will help one appreciate the creative challenges over come by innovative routes to challenging synthetic targets
An excellent app to help one appreciate and review synthetic transformations applicable to other targets.
An improvement would be to include a classification of the synthetic trams formations on the application.
Thank you for
Sharing your creative efforts the interested public .
