About Molecule of the Week
Molecule of the Week (MOTW) has been a popular feature on this site since 2001. Many molecules are suggested by chemists and chemistry enthusiasts. Every structure is reviewed by a scientist and displayed in 3-D and flat images with a brief description.
Each week’s molecule also links to a sample record from the CAS REGISTRY, which is searched using SciFinder. Each record displays the registry number, index name and synonyms, bibliographic information, and more.
