This molecule, of fungal origin, shows the different numbers of bonds used by different atoms:
|Colour on model
|Number of bonds
Note that some of the carbon and oxygen atoms in this molecule show double bonds.
If you rotate the molecule (by holding down the left mouse button and moving the mouse), you can see that many of the bonds between atoms lie in the same plane, but the single carbon bonds and phosphorus bonds project outwards into different planes.
This molecule is in fact
