Published on

This is a co-presentation by Jean-Claude Bradley and Andrew Lang on August 18, 2008 at the ACS conference in Philadelphia. The focus is on many of the tools available to easily demonstrate chemistry concepts in Second Life such as 3D molecules, reaction mechanisms, docking, organic chemistry quizzes, 5D graphs, the ACS museum featuring an HIV exhibit, the red tide phenomenon and many others. Most of the content on display rests on ACS island, Drexel Island and Nature's Second Nature island in Second Life.
