Dear members of the ACS community,
As a sequel of the previous document "Some Simulation Software" I would like to share a potpourri of some of the interesting visualization software I have encountered and worked with.
As always, I hope that theoretical chemists could share their experiences with some of them and feel free to expand this short list.
Following is a summary, that will be completed and improved at a later date (it surely contain some mistakes and should be considered as nothing more than a draft for now).
1 Molecular Mechanics / Force Field: Allows to quickly optimize a "hand drawn" molecule into a reasonable structure.
2 Some trial software program (for 14 days) exists.
3 As a disclaimer, I am currently collaborating on the elaboration of GDIS.
4 Free for non-profit organizations and academic users.
5 Free for academic use.
6 While the software dates from 2000s it is still widespread and cited in 2018, (also a good educational material).
7 Free for academic, scientific, educational, and non-commercial users.
8 CVS access on request only.
COM - commercial
SITE - on-site license
GPL - general public license
LGPL - lesser GPL
BSD - Berkley software distribution
F - FORTRAN language (usually a mix with 77 and 90 version)
C - C language
C++ - C++ language
Py - Python language
Pasc. - Pascal language
CUDA - NVIDIA GPGPU language
I really hope that, similarly to the previous document, you will find this content to be of interest among ACS community.
