Organic chemistry is an important course for chemistry related disciplines but it is difficult to study. With the diverse reaction conditions and types, pithy formulas were suggested to help memorization. During the programming of the pithy formulas, the various meanings of Chinese characters and the association ability of human brain were fully considered, making the pithy formulas simple and easy to read. The scattered information was organized, making the abstract reactions readily remembered. The pithy formulas can not only get beginners familiar with organic chemistry, but also be useful for knowledge system constructing, helping knowledge comprehension and application lifelong.

Key words: Pithy formula, Organic chemistry, Learning, Homophonic
