I need to order a new model kit for general chem and my (much smaller) inorganic chemistry course. Every spring when both courses roll around to optical and geometric isomers of inorganic coordination compounds, I am frustrated and flummoxed about how to best demonstrate them. Particularly difficult are the chelating ligands.
We have the Giant Molecular Model Set, a simple ball-and-stick approach. I've done some internet browsing to find attachments, add-ons, but without a lot of success. I'd love to hear what others use. (I've already tried using bicycling arm warmers as chelating ligands. I'm getting desperate.)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
