Junk Food Molecules
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration allows you to explore the diagrams of some of the most common molecules in so-called "junk" food: cholesterol, sucrose (sugar), caffeine, and phenylalanine (a sweetener). The two different views show you the colored structure diagram of the molecule and the 3D plot of the molecule and its connections. Drag to rotate the 3D plots.
