This on-line reaction index allows searching for reactants, products, conditions, and comments. Book references are given for Organic Chemistry, Third Edition by Paula Jurkanis Bruice and for Organic Chemistry, Fourth Edition by L. G. Wade, Jr. (work in progress) It can produce more than a mole of quizzes.
This on-line reaction quiz accompanies the Reaction Finder, but presents the quiz questions in a slightly different form.
This absolutely beautiful introduction to organic chemistry by Bill Reusch at Michigan State University is a MUST SEE, MUST DO. It includes very well organized discussions, quizzes, and visualizations of all of the important topics in introductory organic chemistry. WOW!
Perhaps hard to believe, but draw an organic structure, and this server will calculate an IUPAC systematic name for it. I kid you not!!
Hypertext linked rules for naming organic compounds. Includes several examples for each rule.
