compounds. It is in the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the cosmetics you
use and the gasoline that fuels your car. Carbon is the sixth most common element
in the universe. In addition, carbon is a very special element because it plays
a dominant role in the chemistry of life.
about the element carbon, its physical properties and electronic structure. View

about the 3 types of carbon: diamonds, graphite and fullerenes. Learn why carbon
is is the building block to molecules of life. Introduction to simple carbon compounds|
ON THE FULLERENE
This is the carbon molecule that has been making
headlines in Nanotechnology and now the drug industry also has interests in it.
What does it look like? How big is it? In this interactive activity you will measure
the diameter of a fullerene molecule using JAVA MAGE , a molecular modeling java
Same module as 'carbon molecule', but images are generated using
the molecular modeling plug-in chime. This allows molecules to be rotated and
viewed in 3-D |
is an introductory tutorial to Chime that also contains hydrocarbon structures.
