The Groups Chapter is found in knowledge base documents. The chapter manages group structures used by Cranium and Synapse.
The chapter's datapane is divided into three sections:
|Group Structure Section
|contains one large field for entering the group's structure.
|General Notes Section
|used to store any general notes about the current group. Often a brief summary of the group's structural characteristics and intended use is entered in this field.
|Associated Documents Section
|used to store links to any documents associated with the current group.
The Groups chapter has commands for reporting group properties, identifying groups in molecular structures and finding groups used in physical property estimation technique. These commands are available from the chapter's Commands menu.
The menubar provides numerous other commands for navigation, bookmarking, file operations, units conversion, etc. See the documentation on Common Commands for details.
|Getting Started using Synapse
|provides a quick tour of Synapse's capabilities including examples of chemical product design.
|Getting Started using Cranium
|provides a quick tour of Cranium's capabilities including a discussion of structure editing.
|Estimating Chemical Properties
|a short video demonstrating how to estimate the physical properties of chemicals using either Synapse or Cranium.
|Estimating Mixture Properties
|a short video demonstrating how to estimate the physical properties of mixtures using either Synapse or Cranium.
