Drawing Chemical Structures
Lecture no. 3 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Investigate some of the key methods scientists employ to communicate the right structural information about molecular compounds, including their identity, the ratio of elements that comprise them, and their connectivity. Methods you’ll explore include Fischer projections, Newman projections, and stereoimages—all of which help us overcome the challenges of conveying the three-dimensional positions of atoms.
