In this toolbar you can select from a number of elements, you can also pick an element from the periodic table using the last button. You can use the element to create new atoms or modify existing atoms.
You can load molecules, just type what you are looking for and a list of available molecules will appear.
These functions allow you to perform some advanced searches through the database using the structural formula from the sketcher.
The Tools menu contains several utility functions which are listed below.
This collects and displays information about the structural formula.
The Model menu contains some general functions for the 3D model.
This function sets the model position, zoom and rotation back to default.
You can choose from a list of different molecule representations including; ball and stick, stick, van der Waals spheres, wireframe and lines. Macromolecules are automatically drawn using ribbons.
You can switch between a black, gray or white background. The default background is black (exported images from GLmol or ChemDoodle have a transparent background)
You can choose from three different render engines: GLmol, Jmol and ChemDoodle. GLmol is used as default render engine. GLmol and ChemDoodle are based on WebGL, a browser technology to support 3D graphics. If WebGL is not available in your browser, Jmol will be used for all rendering.
MolSearch automatically switches to:
The Jmol menu offers some awesome Jmol-only functions and calculations.
Clears all executed calculations and measurements.
Enables High Quality rendering in Jmol (enabled by default on fast devices) When turned off, anti-aliasing is disabled and the model is drawn using lines while transforming it.
You can perform the following Jmol calculations in Jmol:
You can measure distance, angle and torsion using Jmol. You can activate and deactivate one of these measurement types via the Jmol menu.
Note that in some cases, the resolved 3D model is only an approach of the real molecule, this means you have to execute an Energy minimization in order to do reliable measurements.
