Neutron said:Thank you Resistense. Do you suspect your noted differences might be why the crop circle was done : too possibly let us know how to properly synthesize melatonin ?
I don't know about this though. What Resistense pointed out is that indeed, the nitrogen atoms seem to have been properly identified/differentiated by "flipping colors". So the differences he noted are normal given the different elements that composes this molecule. On a 3D model for an example, you'd usually use different colors/sizes to differentiate the atoms.
But that still leaves the carbon just to the right of the amide group not respecting the octet rule by only having 2 carbon-carbon bonds and only one carbon-oxygen bond (normally there are 2 as well).
But I'm not a chemist so I don't really know what else to say.
