CHEM 30B  Dr. R. Rinehart            Amines and Amides Workshop 

1)  Using Netscape*, go to http://c4.cabrillo.edu/chem30b/exercises/Chpt_16_022600/index.html
[
or to http://c4.cabrillo.edu/chem30b/exercises/exerhome.html  and select  Chapter 16.].
There are seven exercises listed. Do all 7 of them except #5 and answer the questions asked on the worksheets attached [if you’re doing this outside class, the link to print your own worksheet is not working]. * I also was able to get this to work with the MS IE version of Chime.
These pages have been revised to use JMol rather than Chime

HINT: Use the right-click pop-up menu to change the display as needed. In most cases, The “Sticks” display is most useful, and unchecking the “Display Hydrogens” option is a big help in drawing line structures.
You MUST indicate heteroatoms [and attached H -- restore the "
Display Hydrogens”] using their symbols.

 

2)  Visit Dave Woodcock’s sites  http://www.molecularmodels.ca/molecule/Amines.htm  and  http://www.molecularmodels.ca/molecule/Amides.htm    [use Netscape].

Scroll down the lists of compounds, pick a few from each class for viewing, and record your observations on the worksheet: 
You might also want to look at http://www.molecularmodels.ca/molecule/Drugs.htm   and
http://www.molecularmodels.ca/molecule/Natural_Products.htm  and
http://www.molecularmodels.ca/molecule/Poisons.htm  .
