TORRES QUEZADA, Celia; VARELA GANGAS, Patricia; FRIAS, María Verónica  and  FLORES-MORALES, Patricio. Using Avogadro as molecular editor for Odontology first year students in a course of General and Organic Chemistry. Educ. quím [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.1, pp.22-29. ISSN 0187-893X.

Today, molecular viewers are an undeniable reality in the classroom. This type of softwares allow students the 3 dimensional development. In this study, free access molecular viewer Avogadro was used. The using of the program was successful not only in the 3 dimensional training, but in the pointing out of carbons’ quilarity of optical isomers. In fact, the velocity was reduced to a half part in comparison to bidimensional molecules. On the other hand, students were prone to the usage of Avogadro in basic and advanced chemical courses.
