Chemistry 14CL Worksheet for the Molecular Modeling Workshop (Revised FULL Version 2012 – J.W. Pang) (Modified – A. A. Russell) (Modified – M. Henary 2016) Structure of the Molecular Modeling Assignment The molecular modeling assignment is divided into two sections. The first section is a simple exercise to familiarize you with the Spartan PC software. The second section deals with the dibenzalacetone molecule that you synthesized in the laboratory during the aldol condensation reaction assignment. You will have a chance to examine the three different isomers of dibenzalacetone and investigate their structures and stabilities. Note: You may need to click the “Enable Editing” button before you start typing your responses. Question 1 Write the names of the students in the group. Put an asterisk beside the name of the student who logged on to the computer . Response: **IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS – FILE SAVING** You cannot save any files constructed on PC Spartan or this worksheet directly on a local computer hard drive. You will need to save all the work on the SLC server in the folder belonging to the group member who logged onto the computer. Instructions for saving the WORD file Use the following filename format when saving the file. Save the file as "MMW_2A_jbruin" where "2A" indicates the lab section and "jbruin" indicates the name ( use only first initial & last name ) of the student who logged on to the SLC computer. “MMW” stands for the “Molecular Modeling Workshop”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
