About this app

ModelAR by Alchemie is a powerful 3D modeling tool for students looking to practice organic chemistry. You can explore chemical structures by creating a molecule on the workspace and quickly toggle to pop into AR. This Augmented Reality feature allows you to interact with virtual molecules in real space. ModelAR brings chemistry to life.

Gestures are simple and intuitive! Simply drag an atom from the side bar onto the main workspace to start building. Drag between atoms to create new chemical bonds. Swipe to rotate molecule and spin bonds quickly. Explore perspectives with our focus tool. Once you’re done, reset your screen in a spectacular explosion!

ModelAR is a great way to supplement your organic chemistry learning materials. No other study tool or app provides a truly immersive, 3D method to build and manipulate molecules & chemical structures.

• Create & explore organic molecules in real space
• Transform tough organic chemistry concepts like stereochemistry into play
• A truly interactive way to improve your understanding of chemical structures
• Experiment with a wide variety of molecules
• Easy toggle into AR from workspace
• Simple & clean design
• Intuitive controls & gestures
• Playful rhythms & sounds

Download ModelAR today & make organic chemistry a fun experience!

The only downside of this app is that it allows rotation of double and triple bonds. But the developer is fixing this on the next update. Hopefully they also include an Undo feature for when you've added one too many atoms 😀

App states, "unable to make rings in this version". Rings are an essential part of conformational analysis in organic chemistry. This app will need much more development and added functionality before it can replace physical model kits.

Great app. Awesome that it's continued to be free without any ads. The attention to detail is awesome(EG you can't rotate double bonds). One slightly weird thing is I can create a chain of 21 nitrogen atoms without any consequences. It would be really neat if you find out a way to show resonance in benzene(as benzene is really important and frequently used molecule). Other than that, development could be done to change the bond of NO2 to a coordinate bond(NO2H is really.. out of this world)
