powerpoint presentation discusses naming alkanes and isomers.
Cycloalkanes and Aromatic Compounds
Powerpoint presentation that shows structures and naming
cycloalkanes and aromatic compounds.
Creative Chemistry Molecular Models: students
can see models of graphite, diamond and buckminsterfullerene.
They can manipulate the models to see the structure in 3-D.
Carbon Allotropes: The Same and Not the Same
The concepts of chemical bonding and elements of the periodic
table are essential for any introductory chemistry course. Also,
the notion of structure versus function is a fundamental concept
in many different subject areas. This module extends the normal
classroom discussion of ionic and covalent bonding into the
realm of hybridization, organic chemistry and nanotechnology.
(Some parts may be to extension for first level chemistry
students, but there is a lot of useful information.)
World of Molecules: A
database of different types of organic molecules.
How Do Functional Groups Work?: After
this tutorial, students will be able to describe: • The
structure of each functional group • Molecules belonging to each
class of compounds characterized by group • The characteristic
chemical behavior imposed by each functional group
Carbon and the Molecular Diversity of Life: This
presentation discusses isomers, shapes, and functional groups.
It uses a biology approach, but could be used in chemistry.
BioMolecular Explorer 3D: Explore the Molecules: Software
for interactive molecular exploration in High School Biology
courses. It offers 3-D models for the basic organic compounds,
as well as lesson plans for secondary teachers to use.
Interactive Organic Chemistry Tutorials: This
tutorial is an interactive tutorial covering the most common
functional groups found in organic chemistry. It is not meant to
be a comprehensive coverage of organic nomenclature.
Isomer Construction Set Allows
students to build models of isomers.
