1. Draw your molecule in 2D here:

Either you don't have Java applets enabled in your browser, or the browser is blocking this applet. Pleae check the warning message in your browser, enable permissions for Java applets under the browser's options or preferences, or install the Java Runtime Environment

2. This is optional; either use this or the “add H” button in step 5
Click on until all hydrogen atoms have been added.


3. Give it a name:

4. from 2D to 3D  (Ņnot working? help)

5. (several times may be needed; help)

6. and see the molecule in 3D here:

move the model using the mouse
help sticks ball and stick spheres colour   in new window image save send
advanced options   (help)
Inversion of configuration:
1. activate
2. highlight the central C and
3. highlight the first atom in each of its 2 substituents to be inverted, and
4. invert
Before 3D: stereochemistry  
After 3D: enantiomer diastereomer in a C
move atoms by dragging and optimise geometry automatically

7. If you want to save this structure or send it to your instructor:
