Bond Angle

    • Checker searches for bonds NOT matching the following rules:

      * Triple bond angle 180° (± 0.5 rad): images/download/attachments/20419267/check_angle1.png check_angle1
      * Double bond angle 120° or 180° (± 0.5 rad): images/download/attachments/20419267/check_angle2.png check_angle2
      * sp2 atom's bond angles 120°: images/download/attachments/20419267/check_angle3.png check_angle3
      * sp3 atom's bond angles 90° or 3 bond angles 120°, 4th bond of an angle of n times 15°; or a bond angle of 120° and two adjacent angles equal: images/download/attachments/20419267/check_angle4.png check_angle4
    • Fixers:

      offers cleaning the structure by:

      • 2D clean or (clean);

      • partial clean (partialclean)

    {primary} The current version of bond angle checker examines chain bonds of 2D molecules. Envelope-shaped cyclic compounds are considered as error and partial clean is not available.
