Description

In an attempt to introduce practical chemists, experimental researchers and students to chemical structure and energy calculations, the ability to determine the structure, stability, and other properties of an unknown molecule without synthesizing it opens up new chemical possibilities and turns fantasy molecules into accessible research objects.
