Atoms in Space: Isomers, Coordination Compounds and Other Structures

Pp. 183-185 (3)

Abstract

In this exercise students will use the molecular modelling software to build and study different types of isomers. Students will use the molecular modelling software to build and study different coordination compounds. Working with dynamic structures in 3D allows students to visualize and understand geometric factors that are difficult to comprehend with a flat (2D) image.

Keywords:

Isomers, coordination compounds, molecular modelling, semiempirical calculations.
