P664: Molecular visualization for the masses: Virtual model kits to virtual playgrounds

Robert M Hanson (St. Olaf College, USA), Hai Nguyen (Carleton College, USA), Erik Wyatt (St. Olaf College, USA)

Over the past few years, the tools we have at our fingertips for molecular visualization have become incredibly powerful. This presentation will highlight new capabilities of Jmol in use for organic chemistry at St. Olaf College, including the virtual model kit, a web-based concept that allows instructors and students to create an unlimited supply of virtual models almost instantly, and the Molecular Playground which uses a Kinect interface to allow participants to actively engage in and explore organic structures, stereochemistry, and mechanisms.
