Me parece un material pertinente para ser utilizado en el aula. Creo que proporciona un buen apoyo didactico para la clase, desde un punto de vista visual, es fácil de utilizar. Sin embargo creo que podría ser mejorado incorporando un texto expicativo para cada tipo de reacción

The website provides mechanisms for some basic transformations in organic chemistry.
The website doesn't seem to do a good job at differentiating between mechanistic steps and transition states. Bonds are shown moving with double headed arrows, and then, a transition state of bonds breaking and bonds being made is shown. This provides for repetative steps and also leads me to believe students may get confused as to what truly constitutes as a mechanistic step. Some type of differentiation would be appreciated. Also, this is quite a short list of reactions. A more thorough database of reaction mechanisms would be a large improvement.
