Make a chemical structure model of Theobromine using Authentic Molymod Atoms & Bonds by Indigo Instruments
Theobromine is often recognized as the prominent molecule present in chocolate. Structurally it is very similar to that of caffeine as it differs only by replacing a hydrogen with a methyl group. It is classified as a methylxanthine. Theobromine is the primary alkaloid found in cocoa.
Its name comes from the Greek word 'theo' meaning 'god', and 'Broma', meaning food, making Theobromine the 'food of the Gods'.
