The Marvin Desktop Suite consists of the following two applications:
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.
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;
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;
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. );
Marvin can run on all major operating systems;
The .NET package makes it available to integrate MarvinSketch into .NET applications.
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.
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. )
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. );
3D conformer generation;
Isotopes, charges radicals, lone pairs, and aliases are supported;
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.
