Origamic Chemistry

Origami Molecules: Caffeine, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Diamond

This is a selection of of various molecules that DofT has built.

Modular Molecule Models

This is 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. Currently we have instructions for atoms, one type of bond unit, and assembly instructions showing that give you a water molecule.

So DofT has emerged from the dark place having posted enough information to build molecules with single bonds. He, of course, has other responsibilities to attend to as well, but with a renewed sense of motivation, he's planning on continuing the updates to flesh out this section.

This section of the site has been on the back burner for a while but DofT was contacted this morning (May 24, 2020) by someone looking for a bit more details on how to, y'kno, put it all together, so we're going to try to get some updates done for you. How about that?

DofT says it was nice to bond with someone over the love of origami and chemistry... bond.. After a groan, we've sent DofT into the dark place to churn out some instructions.
