Jmol is a
moleculeviewer for use in chemistryand biochemistry. It is free and open source. It can be used as a teaching tool or in research. It is Java based and runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linuxand Unixsystems. There is a standalone application and a development tool kit that can be integrated into other Java applications. The most notable feature is an applet that can be integrated into web pages to display molecules in a variety of ways. For example, molecules can be displayed as "ball and stick" models, "space filling models", etc. Jmol supports a wide range of molecular file formats, including Protein Data Bank (pdb), Crystallographic Information File(cif), MDL Molfile(mol), and Chemical Markup Language(CML).
The Jmol applet, among other capabilities, offers an alternative to the Chime plugin, which is no longer under active development. While Jmol has many features that are not available in Chime, it does not claim to reproduce all Chime functionality (most notably, Chime's Sculpt mode). Chime requires plug-in installation and
Internet Explorer6.0 or Mozilla Firefox2 on Microsoft Windows, or OS 9/ Netscape Communicator4.8 on the Macintosh. Jmol requires Java installation and operates on a wide variety of platforms. Jmol is fully functional in Mozilla Firefoxon Microsoft Windowsand Linux, and in Safari on Mac OS X.
Version 11.4 of Jmol was released in January 2008.__notoc__
