Alkenes are important organic molecules as the starting point for making other molecules such as plastics. Alkenes are easy to understand with our unique molecular models that shows how electrons behave during bond formation.
Download and print as many times as you want - forever at no extra cost!
Your students first build their easy to make paper models of atoms and electrons. They use these to form organic molecules by sharing electrons between the atoms. The differently coloured electrons make it easy to see how the bonds are formed.
The models can then be used to show alkene structure, isomers, hydrogenation, reaction with water, reaction with hydrogen halides, reactions of asymmetrical alkenes, formation of carbocations, reactions with halogens, reaction with sulphuric acid and polymers. Clear instructions are provided in the powerpoint presentation.
Includes full colour Powerpoint class presentation!
Takes about 45 minutes! Model atom diameter 10cm/4in
Download includes: instructions, model templates, and Powerpoint presentation.
All you need: paper, scissors and tape
