New Feature for Abbreviations


The List of Abbreviations page has been improved to include structural previews by hovering over the abbreviations. This allows for quick visualization of the terms.

Reagents such as DEAD, DMSO, LDA, etc., now display the molecular structures along with a name reaction where they are used. For example, hovering over DEAD / diethyl azodicarboxylate, displays its structure and indicates that it is used in the Mitsunobu reaction.

More general terms such as hv, cat., (g)↑, etc. show a specific example from one of the name reactions. The following example shows the formation of carbon dioxide gas / (g)↑ as one of the steps of the Hofmann rearrangement.
