Transform a simple sheet of paper into the shape of more than 70 different molecules-at a scale of 300-billion-to-one! Based on the Japanese art of paper folding, origami, this book provides easy-to-follow instructions and black-line patterns to make simple shapes such as tetrahedrals and trigonal pyramidals, to more complex trigonal bipyramidals and truncated icosahedrons (i.e., buckminsterfullerene). Each pattern shows the true bond length in angstroms, as well as the angle of the bond so that each model is an exact replica of the molecular shape. Students will clearly see that different molecules have different sizes even though they may have the same shape. The book provides an excellent, hands-on way to teach molecular structure and VESPR theory. 1995, 223 pages, 8 1/2"
