Web-Based Interactive Animation of Organic Reactions

This WWW-based service for the automated animation of organic reactions we believe to be a versatile tool for teaching and learning organic chemistry. It allows the investigation of the influence of substituents of starting materials on the reaction coordinate and the energy of the depicted reaction. Starting from a list of precalculated organic reactions hydrogen atoms can be substituted by a variety of organic substituents and functional groups using the molecule editor. The new set of starting material is submitted to the calculation of intrinsic reaction coordinates that yields automatically an animation of the reaction that can be viewed with the Chime plugin.
