Organic Compounds of Interest Project

Create a wiki entry for an organic molecule of your choice. Use a variety of hard copy and multimedia resources to research your molecule.

Use MLA style citations with working links for web resources.

Please note: You will need to install a copy of the MDL Chime plug-in to view the 3D structures.
Chime does not work with OSX, sorry Mac users. You will need to download and install iMol.
