About This Simulation

Join Dr.One in our chemistry lab to learn how to recognize aromaticity, master IUPAC and non-systematic nomenclature, and classify compounds as aromatic or non-aromatic. Do you have what it takes to become champion of the chemistry Olympics?

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize and differentiate aromatic compounds from non-aromatic compounds
  • Provide the correct nomenclature, both nonsystematic (common) and systematic (IUPAC), for derivatives of benzene
  • Classify compounds as aromatic or non-aromatic by applying Huckel’s rule

Learn More About This Simulation

Are you ready to dive into the nomenclature of aromatic compounds? In this simulation, you will learn how to relate the concept of aromaticity to the rules of nomenclature while testing your understanding with a series of puzzle-like games. 

Recognizing aromaticity

Your first task will be to recognize whether a compound is aromatic or not. To overcome this challenge, you’ll have to start from observing benzene all the way to understanding the Huckel’s rule. Don’t worry, you’ll be carefully guided through the whole process!

Name the benzene’s derivatives

Next you’ll learn how to give the correct name to the different derivatives of benzene. Nomenclature can be complicated, so you’ll start with monosubstituted derivatives and complete a puzzle-like game to deepen your understanding. Gradually, the difficulty of the puzzle will increase, covering di and trisubstituted compounds, up to the point of building your own molecule with a 3D model. Through visual aids and engaging minigames, you’ll become a master of nomenclature!

Participate in the Chem-lympics

To conclude the experience, you’ll participate in a scored competition against a mysterious chemist. You’ll have to answer questions that cover all the different aspects of aromatic compounds’ nomenclature, but don’t worry, you’ll be able to repeat the experience if needed.Will you be able to gain the title of champion of the chem-lympics?

“They did the simulation at home, then completed the in-person lab within 30 minutes, no questions asked, and passed the quiz with flying colors.”

"I saw some of the students who clearly didn’t necessarily like sitting there reading a book discover they could turn on Labster and keep up with the rest of the class because it spoke to them.

Melody McGill
Curriculum Coordinator
Modesto City Schools

"Having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."

"The question always is, ‘Can we demonstrate that the students are meeting course outcomes?’ Check! We can do that.”

Dr. Melody Esfandiari
Chemistry Lecturer
San José State University

"We surveyed over 400 students. More than 90% thought Labster was easy to navigate, and that it was fun, but more importantly, most of them felt confident that they could execute the labs in person. And that confidence is a big deal."

“The Labster simulations get students to do things, and they're not just sitting there consuming a webinar where their mind can drift. They become an active participant in that learning experience.”
