AOCR offers and continuously improves
a program that computes organic chemical reactions
in a correct, complete, fast and chemically intuitive
The program is able to find all the synthesis of the target product
from the starting compounds given the reaction step rules.
It also lists all the reaction products of the starting compounds.
The chemist can limit his or her effort to the evaluation of the
solution proposed by the program. If the solution is not acceptable,
the program is able to proceed and look for other solutions.
The software is distributed for the following platforms:
- Microsoft Windows
- Sun Solaris Sparc
An online web version of the software is available from this
site, if you would like to try the program. The web version offers
examples of organic synyhesis to help you become familiar
with the use of the program.
The version for download has a few more features than the
version for the web and no disadvantages arising
from working on a remote system.

A useful tool is the converter from pdb.
- chemists involved or interested in
the synthesis and discovery of organic compounds,
- students and teachers who would like to theoretically
experiment with the organic reaction mechanisms they are learning
- chemical companies that maintain some basic research
in synthetic organic chemistry.
