This paper, taking "Schrödinger equation of single electron atom" as an example, introduces an open-source web platform called Jupyter for teaching structural chemistry, which integrates knowledge presentation, scientific calculation, and data visualization. Assisted by various Python libraries, students can interactively learn theoretical concepts, deduce mathematical formulae, and understand the nature of wave functions, which can enhance the participation and interactivity of structural chemistry teaching and cultivate students' programming ability to solve scientific problems.

Key words: Structural chemistry, Python, Jupyter, Schroödinger equation, Teaching reform
