Bond Tools

The default bond tool is the single bond. The other types of bonds can be selected from a sub-menu, after clicking on the black triangle in the lower-right corner of the button.

You can also use keyboard shortcuts to choose a bond type to connect two atoms or alter an already existing bond. See the complete list of chemical bonds available in Marvin JS and their respective keyboard shortcuts in the table below.
