A Bucket Full of Particles


We probably all remember the molecular structural models from our chemistry lessons in school.
Black, white and red wooden balls connected with wooden sticks.

Unfortunately, I can't remember all the codes and combinations any more.
What I always loved abouth them was their aesthetics.

On a sunny afternoon I met with a chemist and in her presence I constructed purely aesthetic molecules without having a clue what they could be or mean. She than checked the code of my constructions and told me what they are.

A) 1-Methoxy-3-methylen-cyclopentan (C7H1O)

B) 2-Propenal (C3H4O)

C) Oxo-Butandial (C4H403)
