3D Molecular Structures
Within the Advanced Search page the "Substance Profiles" tab opens a Speed Typing dialogue to select substances by their names, molecular formulas or CAS registry numbers. After the selection of some substance by mouse-click, Jmol, an open-source Java viewer for chemical structures in 3D, opens and presents an interactive 3D model of that molecule.
Jmol allows for a wide variety of viewer configurations and options, which are accessible via the context menu (right-hand mouse-button). Our screenshot below shows the measurement of bond lengths as an example.
Please refer to the Jmol home page, jmol.sourceforge.net, for detailed descriptions of the Jmol project, manuals and tutorials, examples, etc.
