Teaching Chemistry with Electron Density Models.
Shusterman, Gwendolyn P.; Shusterman, Alan J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v74 n7 p771-76 Jul 1997
Describes a method for teaching electronic structure and its relevance to chemical phenomena that relies on computer-generated three-dimensional models of electron density distributions. Discusses the quantum mechanical background needed and presents ways of using models of electronic ground states to teach electronic structure, bonding concepts, and molecular properties. Also describes the computational methods used to generate the models. (JRH)
