Nello reply:

1865 Kekule's modhel was first reasonable for benzene structure, it put on
of equilibrium between two different structures (double conjugated tie) but
today it
is largely overcome by resonance theory that explain how molecular structure of
hybrid of resonance with delocalizated electrons and every ties C-C equal
with same energy, middle between a single and a double tie, is more steady
than two different
Kekule's structures and better approchs experimental behaviour of benzene .
You can read about debate on Kekule's dream on "Chemical and Engineering
news " nov. 4
1985, pp. 22-23.
I thing but I am not the only one, unlead gasoline is a scientific and
industrial scandal to send smoke devices and less octane gasoline
counterfeiting it like ecological solution. I try to teach chemistry like a
dialectic process to approch the
veritable structure and behaviour of matter; I start by historical study of
scientifical research to explain how every mathematic modhel can be overcome
by other
using better analysis investigation methods and that every laws aren't the
truth but a good way to understand.
Could you me address some intertesting mailing-list of chemistry teachers or
scientific subject ?
