Organic Chemistry Exercises
(with Reaction-Map of Organic Chemistry - See Exercise 15 and  Appendix C)
This site contains a set of exercises designed for use with a college organic chemistry course.  These exercises were originally developed as supplementary material for an organic laboratory course and are still available with the lab experiments at:   This site has been posted for students who want just the exercises.  Solutions to some of the exercises are available at: along with the keys for the Reaction-Map of Organic Chemistry.  The Reaction-Map of Organic Chemistry is also available at:  To make suggestions or comments, please e-mail .
