There is a problem with this article. I don't have the wikipedia or chemistry knowhow to fix it, but I'm posting it here in the hopes that somebody does. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:50, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm probably just being dense, but I've tried several different approaches, to no avail. When I visit a page that is about a particular chemical, I see different representations of the chemical (ball-and-stick, for example), but nowhere have I been able to find a Wikipedia page that actually explains the different types of diagram, how they are made, and what they represent. It appears to me that they are useful in different ways, depending on what one is trying to represent, and I'd like to learn more, but I can't figure out where.
Structural formula are 2D graphical representations that describe the atom connectivities in a molecule but Molecular models describe what the molecule looks like in 3D or even what they actually look like. Both representations supplement each other so expect to see one of each on a chemical page. The molecule page should be more helpful on this topic V8rik (talk) 18:54, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

In the section "Reaction":
It results in some energy exchange between the constituents of the reaction as well with the system environment which may be designed vessels which are often laboratory glassware.

but might be better worded as
It results in some energy exchange between the constituents of the reaction as well as with the system environment, which may be designed vessels—often laboratory glassware.
