In this interactive activity adapted from NOVA, explore the prevalence of ringed-carbon structures in the natural world, as well as the structural variations that give rise to their unique chemical properties. The natural world is composed of a nearly endless variety of organic compounds. At the foundation of many of these compounds is the carbon ring, the structural component for two of nature's most important families of compounds.
