Structures now catalogued with Chemfinder
Note: the database files for the following two search engines will be the only files which will be modified from now (Jan 97) on. The files accessed in the index (below) will no longer be modified when new models are placed on the server.

  1. JavaScript search engine
    This will be a comprehensive user-based search. It requires that you have at least Netscape 3 or equivalent.
  2. Server-based search for keyword and formula searching.
    This will not be as comprehensive but should be usable with all browsers.

    The following models are intended for use where exact interatomic distances and conformations (as might be determined by X-ray analysis for example) are not required. I am using them with beginning students in organic chemistry as educational aids and in 'hyperactive' tutorials on this site.

    I use a commercial programme to obtain x,y,z coordinates and use these in a format usable by RasMol.

    The following molecular files are available as indicated:

    (Suggestions for molecules accepted at the e-mail address at bottom of page.)
    These models are being used in 'Hyperactive Tutorials': organic nomenclature
