email Virtual Model Kit: Control Panel VMK Notebook

Close Introduction Screen

Welcome to the CheMagic O=CHem virtual molecular model kit. The VMK has all of the model building power of a student model kit. It's a desktop, laptop, and tablet (iPad & Android) friendly molecular editor.

The VMK is also a window to the world of chemical information. VMK models are quickly linked to online data. Models can also be loaded into the VMK via direct connection to several popular data sources.

The VMK Control Panel is set to display help comments with each button click. The comments appear at the bottom of the page. Uncheck this box to turn this feature off.

The VMK is powered by JSmol, the NCI/CADD Chemical Identifier Resolver, the JSME Molecular Editor, the NMR Predictor, the PubChem Database, the Protein Data Bank, the Crystallographic Open Database, the CCDC CSD Teaching Database, and the ChemSpider Database. The VMK is written in HTML5. It works best with Safari, Firefox, or Chrome browsers.
