Clear Organic Chemistry Lite

Clear Organic Chemistry Lite

Luke James Ginn

Want a straight forward simple Organic Chemistry app? I believe everyone deserves to excel at chemistry. This app was designed to give anyone and everyone the extra edge!

Previously i've struggled a lot in chemistry and seen my friends do the same, therefore i give you "Clear Organic Chemistry". An organic chemistry app that is clear and straight forward, therefore easy to learn from!

With 144 questions there's plenty to attempt and learn from! Each questions has it's own 'Bonus Content' explaining how it's used in real life, so you can see exactly why you're learning this chemistry.

Level 1 and Level 2 is designed for High School education, whilst Level 3 is a combination of High School and Tertiary Education. For first year Tertiary Education courses, all 3 Levels will teach you the majority of the required knowledge and give you a significant advantage!

Every single molecule was hand picked to have the most applicational use in the real world, whilst still being very simple. As it turns out, the simple molecules have the most applicational use the majority of the time. Every single molecule is linked to a wikipedia page to further enrich your learning.

As you complete each section, you get rewarded with green ticks, motivating you to complete everything. There's also the "Great Set", which is all 144 questions in one big go, if you're up for the challenge!

This app has future updates planned, such as full reaction mechanisms being added in.

I hope all the users of this app are satisfied and have fun whilst learning. This is only a Lite version, buy the full version to get the full use of it. This is called "Clear Organic Chemistry", which can be accessed at

Name Reaction Master

Name Reaction Master

Qingquan Zhao

The Name Reaction Master app is a tool to help you learn name reactions in organic chemistry.

It provides:
(1) a list of 230+ name reactions.
(2) a summary of reaction type categories.
(3) a test in which a reaction scheme will be randomly displayed, and the reaction name needs to be chosen from 4 options.

Specific features:
In this app, a large numbers of reactions have been categorized into reaction types such as oxidation or cross coupling, so it will be really easy to check one specific type of reactions as well as simply compare reactions within that type. In addition, we believe that one difficult part in memorizing name reactions is the connection between a reaction and its name. The test section of this app not only offers a training of this connection, but also allows you to apply repetition in memorization in a quick and simple way.

We hope you enjoy it!
