Organic Chemistry Reaction Mechanism Library

Welcome to the Organic Chemistry Reaction Mechanism Library. Below you will find an ever growing list of reaction mechanisms, SIMPLIFIED, so that you can quickly learn concepts and apply them to your homework questions and upcoming quiz or exam

Every linked mechanism includes an overview for quick study, followed by a detailed description focusing on the ‘how and why’ to ensure that you really ‘get it’. I urge you to UNDERSTAND the logic behind every reaction mechanism rather than simply memorizing. When you memorize you forget. When you understand you have the power to deduce and apply, regardless of the complexity of the question presented
