WWU Virtual Molecular Model Kit
This page was created for our organic chemistry students (Chemistry 351) who might prefer using the computer to a physical model set. However, we hope others will also enjoy using it.
Below are a variety of instructional molecules that can be viewed if you have installed either RasMol or Chemscape Chime as a plug-in viewer in your web browser. At the bottom of the page are links to some other RasMol and Chime sites.
These molecules can be Interactively sized and rotated.- Left mouse button = rotate.
Most of these molecules can be viewed best by using the "Sticks" option
under the Display menu.
Have Fun !!!
