Molecular architecture ; Signals from within( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 9 teaches how the shape and physical properties of a molecule is determined by the electronic structure of its elements and their bonds. Reveals how living organisms distinguish between similar molecules (isomers). Program 10 examines how chemists use the interaction of energy with matter to determine the nature and behavior of chemical substances. The host visits three laboratories in which special techniques are used to test and develop new chemical properties
