Working with chemical structures on the computer can be a real challenge, especially if you want to draw their structure and not just display the numerical formula. Having to do it by hand using an image editor requires patience and can take too much time to be feasible for large scale projects.
FX ChemStruct lends a helping hand to teachers, students and actual chemists who need to graphically represent chemical structures fast and easy, directly into the word processor of their choosing.
Choose between different types of formatting
The resulting structures can be represented in a variety of ways and customized to include lines for the atomic bonds and even the electron placement around the atoms. This allows you to view how the elements are combined and how they share electrons between them, especially useful for teaching purposes.
FX ChemStruct also enables you to display the charge of the ions in the structures and differentiate between the positive and negative ones.
Tweak the structure and equation options
You can adjust the size and line thickness used to represent structures to better fit your needs. Special compounds like Benzene can be displayed using circles or simple lines, depending on your personal preference.
The formatting used to display equations can be modified as well. You can change the style and position of the equilibrium arrows, as well as the height of the subscript and superscript.
FX ChemStruct is a useful utility that can save you a lot of time if you work with chemical structures. The fact that it automatically detects and draws atomic bonds gives you more flexibility and the possibility to do more with less effort involved.
The user interface is intuitive and easy-to-use, while the Microsoft Word integration makes it even more accessible to anyone, from experienced chemists to aspiring students.
