Viewing Tips
The images displayed on this page and the links from it require the Chemscape Chime plug-in. All of the Macs and PCs in the CMU computer clusters have this plug-in installed. To see whether it is installed on your Mac, select "About Plugins..." under the menu.
In addition to simply displaying the molecular structures on a WWW page, the Chime plug-in allows the viewer to manipulate the image with pull-down menu choices, mouse and keyboard actions, and button-clicks. A demonstration of these additional features can be found at the Chime Features page. The Chime Viewer's Guide provides an outline summary of these mouse and keyboard controls.
CAUTION: The plug-in support and JavaScript that provides control functions for the above pages have not (yet) been implemented in Microsoft's Internet Explorer (v4.x). Netscape Navigator (v3.01 or v4.05) on either a Mac or PC is required for the time being.

The small molecules on these pages are shown with CPK atom coloring:
Carbon: gray
Oxygen: red
Hydrogen: white
Nitrogen: light blue
Sulfur: yellow
Phosphorus: orange

Use the Netscape Go menu to return to this page.
