Organic chemistry is tough. It's traditionally been labeled a "weed out" class because of the obstacles it presents. Many students have trouble because they try to memorize facts instead of learning fundamental concepts. Usually the solution is to repeatedly work problems until some level of understanding is reached. Unfortunately, there's little feedback in this approach - you check your answer and it's either right or wrong.
Mol Stereochemistry is a new kind of organic chemistry learning tool that gives immediate response. It's built with solid interaction design and gamification principles in mind making it perfect to practice and master difficult problems in chemistry on-the-go. Mol includes stereochemical properties like chiral centers that are not highlighted in expensive and bulky physical model kits. All of the molecular content is sourced from the National Institutes of Health PubChem online database. Mol is vetted by chemistry professionals to ensure you have an authentic and effective learning experience.
