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.



Kong's 3D Representations of Atomic Orbitals. Can you see the nodes? Where are the node spheres and where are the node planes?



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.
