Organic Chemistry

Odyssey is an essential resource for Organic chemistry. In addition to the molecular modelling kit there are many interactive tutorials that will take the pain out of organic chemistry:

Functional Groups experiment

                                    

Alkanes

Interactive experiment constructing several alkane models, examining the structure of the molecules and establish a correlation with experimentally measured boiling points.

Isomers of the Alkanes

Study isomers of alkanes and examine properties.

Cycloalkanes

Examines the structure of cycloalkanes and predicts the reactivity of the molecules on the basis of the observed structure.

Alkenes

Examines the structure of Alkenes

Alkynes

Construct molecular models of a number of alkynes and compare the electronic distribution of ethyne with that of ethene.

Benzene

Examines benzene's electron distribution.

Functional Groups

Shows how the presence of functional groups in organic compounds can affect their physical and chemical properties.

Alcohols

Study of alcohols via construction of models. Investigate the hydrogen-bonding capability of some simple alcohols.

Carboxylic Acids

In this experiment, students will examine the acid strength of a number of carboxylic acids, analyze the strength of acids via calculated charge maps, determine the acid ionization constant of trichloroethanoic acid from a simulation model.

Esters

Examines the structure of esters.
