CG Teaching Material for the Electronic Laboratory Textbook - Esterification of Acetic Acid and Ethanol

Akira Ikuo, Yusuke Yoshinaga, Haruo Ogawa

Abstract

CG animation of the esterification of acetic acid and ethyl alcohol was made based on quantum chemical calculations by use of MOPAC with PM5 Hamiltonian. The CG animation could simultaneously display realistic shapes and electrostatic potentials of the intermediates of the reactants on the way of the reaction profile besides the ball-and-stick model of the intermediates. A survey of five chemistry textbooks used in Japanese high school revealed that molecular models in chemistry were illustrated by popular molecular models such as ball-and-stick, space filling, and free-hand. There were only a few examples illustrated by the models with characteristics of molecules for chemical reaction mechanism. The CG animation could demonstrate these images of dynamical reaction mechanism for the esterification and can be loaded with tablet PC and smart phone. We are trying to produce an electronic laboratory textbook of the esterification in which the CG teaching material is combined with chemical experiments of student’s laboratory.
