Bits'n'Bobs : Compound Builder

This is a short demo from a CD-ROM we’re building for Newcastle University. The CD-ROM has been commissioned by the University’s Chemistry Department, and is aimed at introducing A-Level students to one of the core elements of degree level chemistry - Structure Determination.

Using data achieved through mass spectrometry, infra-red spectroscopy and NMR spectroscopy, students are encouraged to use tools on the CD-ROM to identify various compounds.

This demo features a custom tool we’ve developed which allows students to build compounds by dragging individual molecules and constructors onto a canvas. The tool then determines if the correct compound has been drawn before the student can proceed to the next question.
