CONSTANTINO, Mauricio Gomes; SILVA, Gil Valdo José da and PELISSON, Marcelo Miguel Martins. Molecules in three dimensions: a stereoscope for the personal computer. Quím. Nova [online]. 1998, vol.21, n.3, pp. 337-340. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40421998000300016.
In this paper we describe how to make a very simple stereoscope for observation of molecular models produced by several recent computer programmes. With this instrument, constructed essentially with four mirrors, the chemist can visualize molecular models in three dimensions directly from the personal computer monitor screen.
