Chem2O6 Organic Reaction Mechanisms

The animations accessible below were created by Professor Brent Iverson of the University of Texas at Austin. They require a mov viewer such as Apple Quicktime; this will be available on the machines in the BSB cluster sometime in October. Until then, students are restricted to viewing them at home or in WJL's office.
