Mol Chemistry

Master stereochemistry concepts with the 2019 International Serious Play Higher Education Silver Award winner, now free!


Organic chemistry is tough.

From the sheer volume of content, to problems requiring creative thinking and mental gymnastics to visualize complex 3D molecules, no wonder organic chemistry is universally known as a “weed out” class. Many students who struggle with organic chemistry try to memorize facts, but that doesn’t work. Mol is a modern learning experience that takes a fun, interactive approach to understanding fundamental concepts.

Engaging exercises integrate effective learning strategies into a gamified framework that keeps you progressing toward mastery. Immediate feedback helps you see what you got wrong, and if you get stuck, useful chemistry information is just a click away. Since you can’t improve what you don’t measure, check out your session statistics to see how you’re progressing over time.

Beautiful molecular visualizations are available in both 2D and 3D. Help bridge your understanding of molecule structure by switching between representations on the fly. It’s like having a bulky model kit in your pocket! All molecular data is sourced from the National Institutes of Health’s online PubChem database and vetted by trained chemists so you have an authentic and effective experience.

Mol is currently focused on stereochemistry concepts such as chiral centers, R or S assignment, enantiomers, and diastereomers. Additional exercises and tools are under active development and will be available at no additional cost. If you’d like to see what we’re currently doing or have planned for the future of Mol, check out our roadmap:
