The following models are intended for use where exact interatomic distances and conformations
(as might be determined by X-ray analysis for example) are not required. I am using them with
beginning students in organic chemistry as educational aids and in
'hyperactive' tutorials on
I use a commercial programme to obtain x,y,z coordinates and use these in a format usable
The following molecular files are available as indicated:

- pdb indicates a .pdb data file which can be used with moleculer viewers
such as Rasmol
(also available from the University of Leeds on

- gif indicates a .gif graphics file.
- jpg indicates a .jpg graphics file.
- bmp indicates a .bmp graphics file which can be viewed on microsoft
windows and could be used as the desktop background!
These models are being used in 'Hyperactive Tutorials':
