Helpful Chemistry Site of the Week.

Today’s site of the week is  I have been a part of this site for a while, and have been pretty impressed with it so far.  Once you register, you can post chemistry questions for the experts to answer.  The experts are extremely knowledgable, and you get a bunch of responses in a very short time.  Great resource for the undergrad who wants a quick answer to a topic that has eluded them to this point.  An even better resource for the grad student who wants to run a research idea by a 10,000 lb brainiac.

This site gets 4.5 beakers out of 5.

Dr. Michael Pa got a bachelors degree in chemistry from Binghamton University, a masters degree in organic chemistry from the University of Arizona and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Arizona. His research focus was on novel pain killers which were more potent than morphine but designed to have fewer side effects. There may even be a patent or two that came out of it. Prior to all of this, he was a chemist at Procter and Gamble. After all of that, he (briefly) worked as a post-doctoral assistant at Syracuse University, working on novel organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). In between, he did NOT compete at the 1996 Olympics, make the Atlanta Braves opening day roster, or become the head coach of the Indiana Pacers, as he had intended. #fail During this entire time, he always loved helping students, especially if they were struggling with organic chemistry. In 2006, Dr. Pa founded in order to make learning organic chemistry fast and easy. 14 years and about 60,000 students later we are still helping students to learn organic chemistry one reaction at a time at
