For courses in Organic Chemistry Laboratory.
The only simulation of its kind on the market, Virtual ChemLab for Organic Chemistry provides a 3D environment on the computer where students feel as though they are in the experiment. The simulations are designed to teach the cognitive processes behind organic chemistry laboratories with a focus on the decisions a student should make, not how a student should perform an experiment. Perfect for pre-lab or post-lab assignments. Available in CD or network versions.

Virtual ChemLab: Organic Chemistry Laboratories is a collection of realistic simulations of organic synthesis and organic qualitative analysis. In these laboratories, students are put into a virtual environment where they are free to make the choices and decisions that they would confront in an actual instructional laboratory setting and, in turn, experience the resulting consequences.
The general features of the organic simulation include the ability to synthesize products; workup reaction mixtures and perform extractions; use nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infrared spectroscopy (IRS, and thin-layer chromatography (TLC) as analytical tools; purify products by distillation or recrystallization; and perform qualitative analysis experiments on unknowns using functional group tests with actual video depicting the results of the tests. The simulation allows for over 1,000,000 outcomes for synthesis experiments and can assign over 300 different qualitative analysis unknowns.
