Molecules for Synthesis of Nylon 6.6 Polymer

Here are interactive structures for the two molecules used to synthesize the Nylon 6.6 Polymer. 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 including electrostatic potentials and molecular orbitals. As an example you might find it interesting to display these molecules in space-filling mode - go to the JSmol menu and choose Style - Scheme - CPK Spacefill.
