Molecules for Chem 211 - Lab 1

Here are interactive structures for the molecules of Experiment 1. Use the left mouse button to rotate the molecules. Shift-left click (or the mouse wheel) allows you to zoom in or out, and right click (or Ctrl-left click) brings up the JSmol menu with many choices for changing the viewing characteristics, making measurements of distance, angle and torsion angle, and for creating molecular surfaces such as electrostatic potentials and molecular orbitals. You might find it interesting to display these molecules in space-filling mode - go to the JSmol menu and choose Style - Scheme - CPK Spacefill
