VisChem topic 14: structure and properties of carbon compounds

This web page contains QTVR objects showing aspects of the structure of selected organic molecules. The QTVR objects can be manipulated by the user so that, as well as being rotated, different ways of modelling the molecules can be seen.

VisChem topic 6: molecular structure, shape and polarity

This web page contains ten animations of molecules and compound ions as well as nine QTVR objects showing organic molecules. The animations rotate the molecules to show their structure fully. The QTVR objects can be manipulated by the user so that, as well as being rotated, different ways of modelling the molecules can be seen.

Building models of organic molecules

Have you seen the model of long-chain carbon molecules first developed by Friedrich August Kekulé? This model enabled chemists to make a great leap forward in their understanding of the structure of organic molecules. See how to represent the structure of methane, ethane, propane, butane and octane. Find out how to rearrange ...

What makes salt and sugar so different?

Have you ever accidentally sprinkled sugar on your dinner or spooned salt into your coffee? Those white crystals might look the same but they taste very different because they are made of different kinds of atoms bonded in different ways. Discover how chemists identify what kinds of atoms a compound is made of, then find ...
