All of the files on this molecular models page contain chemical structure files in PDB (Protein Data Bank) format. They may be displayed in 3D by a plug-in developed by MDL Information Systems Inc. called Chemscape Chime. Compatible browsers and plug-in installation may be found at this link . These files may be saved locally and displayed outside of a browser with a program called RasMol or another for Mac users called iMol . In addition, the cross-platform Java Viewer, Jmol , may be used to display the files locally or in web pages. Click on the highlighted text in this paragraph for more information about these applications.




Many of the structure files appearing in this collection were obtained from other structures collections. Please visit these sites for additional structures.



Directions for Manipulating the Display

Click on the name of the molecule to see the Chemscape Chime model of that molecule.

If you are using a Macintosh, put the pointer on the graphic and hold down the mouse button to obtain a menu of options that control the molecule display. If you are using a PC, put the pointer on the graphic and hold down the right mouse button to obtain the menu.

You can manually rotate the molecule on its x or y axis by dragging on the graphic.

If you are using a Macintosh, hold down the Shift key while dragging the mouse to resize the structure. Hold down the Option key and move the mouse to translate the structure to another position on the screen. Hold down Shift and Command keys and drag the mouse for z-axis rotation.

If you are using a PC, hold down the Shift key while dragging the mouse to resize the structure. Hold down the right mouse button and drag to translate the structure to another position on the screen. Hold down Shift key and right mouse buttton and drag the mouse for z-axis rotation.
