3D Printers Can Provide an Added Dimension for Teaching Structure-Energy Relationships
Blauch, David N.; Carroll, Felix A.
Journal of Chemical Education, v91 n8 p1254-1256 Aug 2014
A 3D printer is used to prepare a variety of models representing potential energy as a function of two geometric coordinates. These models facilitate the teaching of structure-energy relationships in molecular conformations and in chemical reactions.
