by WebElements: the periodic table on the web

There are many chemical web pages that display chemical structures within the web page itself. You, the viewer can then rotate the molecule on screen, read off bond lengths and angles, and do other useful things. To do this, a free piece of software known as a plug-in is required. There are at least two plugins available for you to use.

WebElements now has the capability for authors on the site to embed easily interactive spectra using the JSpecView applet via bbcode using jspecview tags. This is achieved by writing:[jspecview=600,400]pclanilIR.jdx[/jspecview].

The =600,400 bit gives the desired spectrum size while the file name to be displayed is included between the tags. The file is uploaded by authors who are assigned rights to upload attachments.

This site now has the ability to display molecules interactively via the Jmol Java applet. This should mean that some stories or articles may come to mean a little more. As an example:[jmol=300]H3N-BF3.mol[/jmol]The motivation for this came from CHMEMCONF Spring 2006 and in particular Bob Hanson’s paper. With Bob’s encouragment, what I’ve done here is made a small extension to the software I’m using here (Drupal so that molecules can be embedded simply with a bbcode type string, in this case: [jmol=300]H3N-BF3.mol[/jmol]I’ll issue a note with more details on how to do this after further work.Can’t see anything above?

This is for web authors.

Have a look at JSmol where you can find information about the JSMol molecule viewer. With this you can publish chemical structures in your web pages and it usually works just fine provided your viewers have fast access to the internet. For an example of JSmol in action try this VSEPR tutorial.

Quote: “JSmol is a JavaScript framework that allows web developers to create pages that utilize either Java or HTML5 (no Java), at will.
