DofTNet Origami

Origamic Chemistry


This is the original origami caffeine molecule that DofT built sometime around the early 2000s - he can't quite remember exactly when, but a rather grainy webcam photo of this shows up in's wayback machine as early as June 2001. The bonds are a pale blue and the hydrogens are yellow becase that just happened to be what he had on hand and didn't think to cut up regular printer paper at the time.

Modular Molecule Models

This will be the home for the instructions on how to construct origami molecules. Instructions will include making atoms out of a variation of sonobe units, and the different bond units that are used to link the atoms together in interesting combinations as well as example molecules including water, carbon dioxide, diatomic nitrogen, and perhaps a few others.
