Bonding & Structure
Odysseys Atomic Molecular Modelling Kit is an intuitive 3D molecular modelling package. Students can learn atomic structure through building molecules in guided interactive tutorials.
Odyssey includes a series of 9 experiments on bonding and structure:
Covalent Bonding experiment
The Energetics of Ionic Bond Formation
Investigates the energy involved in ionic bond formation between, typically, metals and non metals.
Illustrates how ionic crystals can be formed from their contributing elements in their standard states.
Covalent bonding - analysing the relation between separation and bond strength
Shows the electronegativity differences on the type of bonding present in molecules.
Examines resonance in Lewis structures.
Illustrates lone pairs as electron pairs that do not participate in bonding.
Describes VSEPR Theory paying attention to the electron pair repulsion theory in the prediction of molecular theory.
The molecular shape of molecules showing how bonding and free electrons can affect it.
Illustrates dipole moments as the distribution of charge in a molecule.
