How to Use Molecular Models

Building molecular models is one of the most important skills you will master in your organic chemistry classes – it will help you to visualize two-dimensional drawings and teach you how to think about molecules as they actually exist in 3-dimensional space. Here we show you how to use the two main types of molecular model kits: ball-and-stick and wire-frame models. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type, and they have evolved from some pretty interesting origins (also discussed – OF COURSE!) We hope you find this helpful – if you do, please click LIKE, SHARE and SUBSCRIBE!
