	%X Spatial understanding and the understanding of
dynamic change in the spatial structure of molecules during a
reaction is essential for designing new molecules. Knowing the
physical processes in the reactions helps to speed up the designing
process. To support the designer with the correct representation of
the designed molecule as well as showing the dynamic behavior of
the whole reacting system is the goal of our application. Our system
shows the spatial deformation of the molecules at every time interval
by minimizing the energy level of the molecules. The position and
orientation of the molecules can be intuitively controlled by
manipulating objects of the real world using Augmented Reality
techniques. Our approach has the potential to speed up the design of
new molecules and help students to understand the chemical
processes better.
