Interacting with 3D-Molecules

Molecules Around Us

Chemistry of Life

Showing the world what the molecules around us look like

This section is devoted to many organic molecules with biological relevance. You can find historical details and beautiful 3D structures to enhance your fascination for the world of molecules

Single molecules can be made up of thousands and thousands of atoms. And some molecules present fun but recognisable shapes and their structure are similar to shapes of real-world animals or objects

Usually chemists follow strict rules in naming compounds, but believe it or not sometimes it's easier to call a molecule by the shape it takes. Here some real molecules that have unusual, funny or even silly names
