Carboxylic acids are cool!
Carboxylic acids are organic compounds that occur naturally in fats and oils. They are used widely industrially in the production of soaps, medicines and textiles.
Carboxylic acids are easy to understand with our unique molecular models that shows how electrons behave during bond formation.
Your students first build their easy to make paper models of atoms and electrons. They use these to form organic molecules by sharing electrons between the atoms. The differently coloured electrons make it easy to see how the bonds are formed.
The models can then be used to show carboxylic acid structure, naming carboxylic acids and their reactions.
