SynArchive : A total synthesis database

SynArchive is a free web based application that allows you to browse a growing database of organic syntheses. Unlike most chemical synthesis shown on the web, the sequence of reactions is clear, precise and unambiguous.

Search for a synthesis

You can search for molecule's name and author's name. (i.e. "Taxol" or "Woodward")

Synarchive helps chemistry students and chemists all over the world. If you enjoy our website and find it useful, please support us by making a donation.
