Organic Chemistry: Modeling Functional Groups

kit #132

How is a family of compounds created by a common functional group? With this Lab-Aid, students draw “structural formulas” for such “functional groups” as alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, and tersters. They construct the corresponding models and see how a two-dimensional diagram materializes into a 3-dimensional molecule. Students learn the relationship between the diagrams and models as well as how a “family” of compounds is created by a common “functional group.” Twelve complete sets of molecular model components are provided, one per each group of two students. An additional set of molecular model components are available as ADD A GROUP item # 132EL.
