“Julie Newdoll’s Electronimoes is an easily learned, colorful game. The bonding combinations that one comes up with in the course of game make sense. They teach beautifully . . .”

Ultimate Electronimoes

Challenging molecule making extension deck to Orbital Electronimoes

Single, double, triple bonds and ionic attractions are not the whole bonding story. Some of the most difficult molecules for new chemists are turned into fun puzzles in this deck. Sulfuric acid, nitrate, nitrobenzene, and many others presented as a puzzle to solve, with just the molecular formula on one side of the square molecule card. Games can be played where players pick a molecule card and try to come up with the right atom cards to make it work. Turn the card over for the answer!

This deck includes: dative covalent bonds, also called co-ordinate bonds; polar single, double and triple bonds, hydrogen bonds, and a questionable representation of sulfur ready to make six bonds. Although most think this molecule does not need d orbitals, some do. It was so beautiful, it was included in the deck, but can be removed if this is not in line with your opinion on the subject.

With this extension deck, you can walk through acid-base reactions with your students, or on your own. The electrons are color-coded so you can follow them and see why an atom might be charged, for example.

These cards represent years of research and collaboration with accomplished chemists from places like SUNY Potsdam, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the National Academy of Science.
