Chemistry Drills

These Chemistry Drill pages are designed for AP, IB, A-Level & 1st year university students trying to get to grips with the subject. Drill (quiz) topics currently include: Recognition of atoms, ions, salts, simple organic functional groups, molecular shapes, organic nomenclature, balancing chemical reaction equations, elucidation of organic molecular structures using spectroscopy and stereochemistry.
