Molecular Models of Polymers Used in Sports Equipment  William F. Coleman
The Featured Molecules this month are a number of monomers and their associated polymers used in making equipment for a variety of high-impact sports. The molecules provide students with an introduction to an important area of applied chemistry and also enable them to examine complex structures using the models they have seen applied to small molecules.

The Electrochemical Synthesis of Transition-Metal Acetylacetonates  S. R. Long, S. R. Browning, and J. J. Lagowski
The electrochemical synthesis of transition-metal acetylacetonates can assist in the transformation of an entry-level laboratory course into a research-like environment where all members of a class are working on the same problem, but each student has a personal responsibility for the synthesis and characterization of a specific compound.

Optimizing the Use of Personal Response Devices (Clickers) in Large-Enrollment Introductory Courses  Klaus Woelk
This taxonomy of clickerselectronic devices with which students can remotely submit responses to questions posed by a teacherclassifies their use into two general categories. The first involves probing class attendance, preparedness, and subject matter interest, while the second pertains to the enhancement of conceptual understanding and content mastery.

An Animated Interactive Overview of Molecular Symmetry  Marion E. Cass, Henry S. Rzepa, David R. Rzepa, Charlotte K. Williams
An Animated Interactive Overview of Molecular Symmetry is a series of Web pages designed to help instructors teach molecular symmetry. These pages combine interactive Jmol images and instructional text that allow students to examine and explore the operations and elements that give rise to molecular symmetry.

Interactive Molecular Orbitals  William F. Coleman
The majority of Introductory Chemistry texts provide students with an adequate introduction to the visual aspects of the molecular orbital model for homonuclear diatomic molecules. The treatment of heteronuclear diatomic and polyatomic molecules is less uniform. Heteronuclear diatomics, when mentioned, are invariably treated as being derived from homonuclear diatomics. While the atomic orbital energy level differences in heteronuclear diatomics is sometimes pictured, the consequences of those differences for the resultant molecular orbitals are rarely discussed. The discussion of polyatomic molecular orbitals in these texts is limited to showing that parallel p-orbitals produce delocalized pi molecular orbitals. The molecules typically mentioned in this context are benzene, nitrate ion and carbonate ion. However, It is rarely pointed out that the six p-orbitals in benzene would form 6 pi molecular orbitals, and that only one of these orbitals would look like the picture in the text.These interactive modules are designed to clarify this subject.

Luminescent Molecular Thermometers  William F. Coleman
The Featured Molecules this month come from the paper "Luminescent Molecular Thermometers" by Uchiyama, Prasanna de Silva, and Iwai exploring the many ways that photophysical properties can be used as temperature probes. They introduce a variety of molecule types, many of them now in our molecule collection. Excited states play a central role in this paper and it provides an opportunity to introduce students to some excited state properties.
