Organic Compounds Database

Logo for Organic Compounds Database
This is a pretty unique site in that you can put as much information as have about an unknown organic compound, and the database will give you a list of possible compounds from the database of nearly 2500 different organic compounds.

This is so neat! Students can use this Colby College resource to identify unknown organic compounds by imputting physical data like melting points, UV absorption wavelengths, mass spec peaks or any knowledge they have about functional groups or molecular formulas. It's a rather reliable system as it has built in error bars for the measurments. This would make identifying organics a far simpler process. This could potentially be used in an undergraduate organic chemistry lab in which students must identify an unknown.
