IAE on Atomic Orbitals



Take a look at the Grand Table of atomic orbitals. This site shows pictures of AOs up to high n- and l-values.



This MIT site on Atomic and Molecular Orbitals allows for the display of AOs and you can change perspective.



I also found a site where you can download a Mathematica program that allows you to draw three-dimensional representations of atomic orbitals. If you are a Mathematica enthusiast, you might try that out. Otherwise skip it.



Wong's 3D Models of Atomic Orbitals. This site requires a VRML plug-in and a lot of memory. Since these virtual reality presentations, you can rotate and translate the MOs at will. Quite good!



Let me know if you can find other sites on the web that help learning about atomic orbitals, molecular orbitals, hybridization and bonding. If you bring a site and it get's posted, I will acknowledge you by name.
