Marvin Desktop Suite

The Marvin Desktop Suite consists of the following two applications:

  • MarvinSketch

  • MarvinView

MarvinSketch

MarvinSketch is an advanced chemical editor for drawing chemical structures, queries, and reactions.

It has a rich (and growing) list of editing features, is chemically aware, and can call ChemAxon's structure-based calculation plugins for structures on the canvas.

Rich Editing

  • Easily accessible chemical drawing functions, a lot of shortcuts;

  • Convenient editing in 2D and 3D;

  • 2D and 3D cleaning of the structures;

  • Pre-defined structure templates and user-defined custom templates;

  • Abbreviated groups;

  • Chemical name (IUPAC or traditional), CAS Registry Numbers® or InChi / RInChI can be pasted onto the canvas and get converted into chemical structures directl y;

  • Wide range of file types supported: MRV, CDX, SKC, SDF, RDF (V2000/V3000), RXN, MOL, MOL2, SMILES, SMARTS, InChI/RInChI, CML, FASTA, etc.;

  • Copy and paste between different chemical editors; drag&drop feature;

  • Inserting editable chemical structures (as Marvin OLE objects) into MS Office documents;

  • Advanced query features;

  • Handling polymers and biomolecules;

  • User-definable customizable styles (fonts, colors, structure representations, etc.);

  • Drawing and formatting shapes, arrows and text boxes;

  • Multipage documents and printing support.

Chemically Aware

  • Isotopes, charges, radicals, lone pairs, and aliases;

  • Error checking (valence error and structure checking);

  • Advanced stereochemical functions;

  • Structure-based Calculator Plugins - for calculations of different chemical properties - can be called directly from MarvinSketch;

  • Structure query design (R-logic, SMARTS properties, etc.);

  • Manual and automatic mapping for reaction drawing;

Cross-platform Delivery

  • Marvin can run on all major operating systems;

  • The .NET package makes it available to integrate MarvinSketch into .NET applications.

MarvinView

MarvinView is an advanced chemical viewer for single and multiple chemical structures, queries, and reactions.

It has a rich (and growing) list of visualization features, is chemically aware, and can call ChemAxon’s structure-based calculation plugins for loaded structures.

Rich Viewing

  • Wide range of file types supported: MOL, MOL2, SDF, RXN, RDF (V2000 / V3000), SMILES, SMARTS/SMIRKS (recursive), MRV, InChi, CML, PDB etc.;

  • Copy and paste between different viewers/editors;

  • Table, spreadsheet, and single-molecule views;

  • 2D/3D representation and animation;

  • Export option in graphic formats (JPG, PNG, BMP, POV, SVG, EPS, PDF, EMF);

  • Non-chemical data, such as SDF fields can be displayed;

  • User and developer definable visualization styles (colors, structure representations, etc.)

Chemically Aware

  • Structure-based calculations can be called directly from MarvinView. For a complete listing of functions please see the Calculator Plugins section;

  • Advanced stereochemistry functions (E/Z for double bonds, R/S for chiral atoms, ABS/OR/AND enhanced stereo labels, etc.);

  • 2D cleaning;

  • 3D conformer generation;

  • Isotopes, charges radicals, lone pairs, and aliases are supported;

Cross-platform Delivery

Marvin can run on all major operating systems and is available in the following distributions:

  • Java Applets can easily be implemented into Java-enabled web pages without the need for the user to install software or plugins;

  • Java Beans can be directly installed to give standalone desktop applications and can also be used to integrate Marvin into Java-based applications,

  • Java Web Start enables web delivery of end-user applications;

  • The .NET package makes it possible to integrate Marvin into .NET applications.
