		Reaction Driller 1.5
		Educational organic chemistry software

	Innovative Software Solutions is currently selling its new 
Macintosh program for organic chemistry students. Reaction Driller 1.5 is 
a new Macintosh application which tests and reviews over 200 organic 
chemistry reactions typically covered in the first year of a 
college-level organic course. The software was designed with students in 
mind and is graphically driven for easy use, manipulation and learning. 
For each particular reaction there is a detailed drawing of the starting 
compound and the reagents used. At the touch of a button the you can 
display the product of the reaction, or a short, but detailed text 
description. For reactions of mechanistic importance, a color reaction 
mechanism is also available. 
	Reaction Driller allows you to maintain total control over what 
you want to review. You can choose to review reactions from 14 sections, 
and you can easily navigate from section to section by making a menu 
selection. Within any section, you'll be able to search for and find any 
particular reaction. It's great as a course supplement while initially 
learning reactions, a reviewing tool for use right before exams, or as a 
method of revitalizing long forgotten knowledge. This software is easy to 
use and very effective. It has already been introduced into the teaching 
curriculums of several universities, where both students and professors 
found it to be novel, highly effective, and very reasonable in cost. Many 
Ph.D.'s and graduate students have also found this software valuable in 
reviewing organic fundamentals.
The sections in Reaction Driller 1.5 are:
	Alkyl Halides
	Aromatic Compounds
	Alcohols and related compounds
	Ethers and related compounds
	Amines and related compounds
	Aldehydes, Ketones and Nitriles
	Carboxylic Acids and Derivatives
	Condensations and alpha-Substitutions
	Biochemistry I: Carbohydrates
	Biochemistry II: Lipids
	Biochemistry III: Proteins
	Functional Groups Review

Reaction Driller is not yet available in stores (and probably will not be 
for several months), however you can obtain it directly from the 
developer for $30. To order, please send a check or money order to 
Innovative Software Solutions and we will ship you your purchase
