Here’s a list of 5 organic chemistry apps for Android which you can use to learn about organic chemistry using your Android powered tablets or smartphones. Apps that I tested might not have as much info as text books have, but they will help you out if you want to freshen up your knowledge when waiting for the class to start or driving in the bus, but you don’t want to haul books with you. For some who haven’t started studying, these apps will be a great place where to start their organic chem adventures.
Let’s see these apps below.
Organic Reactions is an organic chemistry app, or should I say organic chemistry reminder, which has info on components of reactions in the main functional group of compounds and it also tells you want the end products of their reactions are.
Most of the info in the app is available for free, glossary of terms, info on alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aromatic compounds, haloalkanes, thiols and amines. However, to get access to all the info you will need to purchase the full app.
Get Organic Reactions.
Organic Chemistry Nomenclature
Organic Chemistry Nomenclature is an organic chemistry quiz app which focuses on figuring out and matching chemical groups to their respective structures.
All the important chemical groups are covered, hydrocarbons, halogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus/boron and heterocycles. After you run the app, you’ll be asked to select which groups out of the 7 that I mentioned you want the quiz to contain and when you click on the “begin quiz” button, the quiz will start, see image above.

Learn Organic Chemistry
Learn Organic Chemistry is a great app for newcomers to organic chemistry, students but also anyone else who would like to get familiar with organic chemistry.
Registration is required to go past lecture 1. App keeps track of your progress using percentage points (bottom left corner of the screen). Each lecture has three segments, tutorial (can be seen on the image above), flash cards and a quiz. Tutorial has info pertaining to the selected lecture and the quizzes/flash cards are there to help you further solidify your knowledge.
Organic Chemistry Named Reactions
Organic Chemistry Named Reactions offers info on numerous chemical compounds and reactions, too many for me to list them all here. Over 200 reactions and their detailed info is included in the app.
Each one of the reactions will have a short description, and a chemical structure showed. Search tool is available to help you find info on a particular chemical reaction more easily.

Organic Chemistry Database
Organic Chemistry Database is an information packed app similar to Organic Chemistry Named Reactions.
Here you’ll find info on organic chemistry related elements, reactions and mechanisms. Switch between these three categories using the tabs at the top, and use the Menu button all the way in the top right corner of the screen to further switch between the items of a particular category.
I suggest that you start with Learn Organic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Database to learn about organic chemistry and then use Organic Chemistry Nomeculture to quiz yourself. In the end, all 5 of the organic chemistry apps from the list above have useful features, info to be more precise, so make sure to give them all a spin and let me know what you think in the comment section down below.
