Select a pair of molecules by the menu on the left to display two mirror image geometries for a compound. Rotate one or both structures to inspect identity or differences in the two 3D models.
[*] Symmetry and point group information is given based on the actual conformation of the molecules, this is not the apparent symmetry of the chemical formulas.
All still images of molecular structures were created in high-quality rendering mode using the MolArch+ program and the POVRAY "Persistence of Vision" ray-tracer. For many molecules you will find additional informations in the MolArch+ - Graphics and Movies section of this web-site. A full list of molecular structures and chirality-related 3D-models available on these pages can be found here.
