The Chemical Structure section is one of the most important sections in the Chemicals Chapter. With knowledge of only a chemical's molecular structure, Cranium and Synapse can estimate many physical properties.
The section contains a single large field:
The Chemical Structure Section displays the molecular structure of both known molecules and newly design candidate chemicals.
Clicking the right mouse button in the structure field's edit control displays the commands menu.
In addition to commands for copying and pasting molecular structure, the field's command menu contains several commands for generating chemical formulae, mol files and smiles strings.
Clicking the left mouse button in the large edit control activates the Structure Editing dialog.
The Structure Editing dialog enables you to quickly and easily draw, insert or import molecular structures. Use of the dialog is detailed in the Structure Dialog documentation.
|Chemical Structure Dialog
|enables you to create and edit the molecular structure of chemicals and groups.
|Estimating Chemical Properties
|a short video demonstrating how to estimate the physical properties of chemicals using either Synapse or Cranium.
|Getting Started using Cranium
|provides a quick tour of Cranium's capabilities including a discussion of structure editing.
|Getting Started using Synapse
|provides a quick tour of Synapse's capabilities including examples of chemical product design.
|the chemicals chapter contains numerous sections for entering and displaying data and estimates including the chemical structure section.
