Day 11 Podia Question

Day 11 Pre-class Podia Problem: Three-dimensional Models and Lewis Structures

Below are 3-D models of three molecules. For each molecule, rotate the model to observe the structure. Then using wedge-and-dash notation, draw three 3-D Lewis structures of each molecule. Each wedge-and-dash structure should be viewed from a different perspective. If there are any lone pairs and/or formal charges, be sure to include them.

Glycine is an amino acid, a component of protein molecules.

Acrolein is used to kill algae and weeds in irrigation ditches and other natural waters.

Methyl formate is used mainly in the manufacture of other chemicals.

Two days before the next whole-class session, this Podia question will become live on Podia, where you can submit your answer.
