The Shockwave animation
illustrates the reaction between ethanoic acid and methanol. The
hydroxyl group (nucleophile) of methanol attacks the electrophilic
carbonyl carbon of ethanoic acid. The structures on the left can
be manipulated by taking advantage of Chime mouse commands. The
Shockwave movie to the right demonstrates the movement of electron
