3DMolSym

Bookmark Collection:  3DMolSym

Bookmark Collection Description:

3DMolSym is an educational program designed to visualize the symmetry elements of molecules and to animate the corresponding symmetry operations in an interactive 3D environment.The website is useful because it is an animated way to see molecules. The tecaher and the students can visualize tons of molecules in 3D using the computer. Molecules are often a tough topic in chemistry but this website helps break it down. The molecules can be shown in wireframe, ball and sticks, sticks, or space filling format. The molecules can also be zoomed and viewed from different angles. The molecule can also be tested for symmetry on this program. A teacher could easily use this as a reference after introducing new molecules so that students can see what the molecule will actually look like. They can also use it as a reference for homework if they are confused about the structure and bonds of a molecule.
