An Introduction to Molecular Orbital Theory

An Introduction to Molecular Orbital Theory

This web site explains molecular orbital theory very thoroughly. It uses 3-D pictorial presentations of molecular orbitals to elucidate organic reaction mechanisms - such as those found in pericyclic chemistry. The pictorial content uses both Chimed and VRML enhanced images, and demonstrates that these forms can be used in the place of traditional "curly arrows" and "resonance hybrids", as they can provide a deeped and more subtle insight into the mechanism of a reaction.
