Interconversion of Fischer and zig-zag projections learning stereochemistry with the help of hands
Visualization of molecules in three dimensions is an important aspect of organic chemistry. The use of hands has been shown to be effective in the three-dimensional visualization of molecules . A method of looking at one’s own hands as a model that allows students to see the interconversion of Fischer and zig-zag projections is described in this article.
