“Reagents”: A Pocket Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Chemistry

Reagents is a new app for iPhone and iPad that gives you all the key information about the most commonly encountered reagents in undergraduate organic chemistry courses.

Here’s the key features of Reagents:

And for a limited time it’s also free.

What does this mean for you?


My students describe having this problem a lot:

They’re working away on their homework and suddenly need to remind themselves of what a certain reagent (let’s say NaBH4) does. So they have to pull out their 1000 page textbook to look it up. Except… the textbook points them to multiple pages, some of which are relevant, some not. After a minute or two, they get the information they need. Until… five minutes later, when they need to do this again, and again. Hunting through a huge textbook for tiny pieces of information can be a pain. 

What students kept telling me is that they wanted an “abridged textbook” that covered all the reagents in organic chemistry.
To help solve this problem, I developed the Reagent Guide, which puts all the reagents of organic chemistry on your desktop.

Now, in collaboration with Metamolecular, the Reagent Guide has been adapted for the iPhone and iPad.

The result is Reagents –  a pocket encyclopedia of all the most common reagents in organic chemistry. It gives you the comprehensiveness of a textbook, but with all the convenience of a mobile app. 

Now you can answer the question, “What does that reagent do again?” in a few seconds. And then go back to your work.  

In other words, you can spend less time searching for information and more time actually studying. 

Hey, did you see that Reagents is free?
(But act now, because it  won’t be free forever.  This is a limited time offer.) 
UPDATE : Reagents is now available from the App Store for $4.99
