Uses modelling balloons to simulate the ways in which bonds are directed within a molecule and demonstrates structurally favored positions for atoms in the molecule. The difference between left-handed and right-handed glucose is explored experimentally, and its biological significance discussed. Explains the idea of chirality and shows optical rotation with a simple polarimeter. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
