Chemistry: Organic Chemistry Tutorial With Dr María Paz Muñoz, Daniel Elford & Professor Simon Lancaster From University of East Anglia
15th December 2020 @ 16:30 - 17:15
Following up on her lecture on organic molecules in our everyday life on 9th December, Dr M. Paz Muñoz, joined by Mr Daniel Elford and Prof Simon Lancaster from the School of Chemistry at UEA, will deliver an interactive tutorial in which they will show different methods to represent molecules in 3D to help students with the interpretation of 2D representation of chemical structures.
They will start using the classical molecular modelling kits and they will introduce a new UEA developed augmented reality smartphone app “Chemford” (free to download from Google play and apple store) to show the 3D structure of organic and inorganic molecules. They will talk about how the 3D structure influences some properties and how it can be used to understand and predict reactivity.
The session aims to give students the experience of taking part in a university tutorial whilst developing some key concepts previously discussed on 9th December.
Suitable for: Year 12/13 students studying Chemistry, interested in real world applications of Organic Chemistry, and interested in experiencing a university tutorial.
Preparation or Pre-Reading: It would be beneficial to have taken part on 9th December but it is not essential and you will be very welcome if you weren’t able to make it on 9th. If you have access to a physical molecular modelling kit, please do have that with you. If you don’t, the “Chemford” smartphone app (free to download from Google play and apple store) will be useful to download.
The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
