Organic Structure and Bonding

Welcome to the Introductory Page

This section contains interactive 3D models for some of the most important organic structures covered during an undergraduate degree.

Each page contains some information about the structure with interactive buttons and checkboxes to display various features.

By clicking on the appropriate checkboxes and rotating the structures in 3D, you can explore the characteristics of the molecules and discover how and why they react as they do.

Use the acetone example below to familiarise yourself with some of the interactive features available in the electrostatic surfaces section.

Checkboxes to show additional features

Use your scroll wheel to enlarge and shrink the models, right clicking the mouse (Control-click MacOS) over the resizeable Jmol screen will give additional options and features that can be explored for the structures.

To navigate your way to the required page, simply use the side-bar. Select the type of information you are looking for and then choose from the given list.
