Is there tool for 3d visualization of molecule orbitals?
« on: September 06, 2010, 10:36:37 AM »
Hello. Before anything, sorry for any english mistakes. I'm new to chemistry and I'm in search of understanding how the atoms and molecules work. I'm searching a tool that allows me to visualize the eletric orbitals overlapped, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMt5Dcex0kg
If possible for molecules, not just atoms.

Better yet, please take a look at this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrGRTtdJgoo&feature=related
At 1:50 it shows how electrons move though the electron cloud. A tool with that function could help me even further than just seeing the clouds, for instance: some of the 3d orbitals have 4 "equiprobabilistic clouds" but each orbital carries only 2 eletrons, so I can't figure out how electrons move around those clouds.

Thanks in advance.

I checked ChemDraw 3D but I could only figure out how to display molecular orbitals

it probably displays regular orbitals too.
