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!

Great synthesis tool!!!

This is a great app for those looking to learn more about synthesis than in an O Chem class
