The examples of molecular structures shown here may only be viewed when Chime is installed as a plug-in for Netscape (4.x) or another suitable browser. Since 2021 I try to transcribe the scripts to Jsmol - you will no longer need to istall the obsolete Chime plugin (be patient - my years are counted but I hope for the best).

I appreciate receiving suggestions and hints !

In the last years before my retirement there was no time to update these pages, so I apologize for broken links and other inconveiences.
