This utility is a molecular viewer and addresses all people involved in the study or research of chemistry or materials related sciences. It is an open source project and has appeared on the market due to the high demand for a molecular viewing application. The project improved over time by launching new versions that included new features, some added to the suggestion of users. Also, it has increased its speed, integrated a chemical development kit, increased performance to work with large macromolecules.
The program has three components: an applet that can be integrated into web pages, a stand-alone Java application, and a Viewer.
Since it is a Java-based application, you need to have a Java environment installed on your computer. Many things can be done with this application: High-performance 3D rendering, structures, animations, distances and angles measurements, investigations, orbitals and so on and at the end, the results can be exported in several image formats.
There is a large community created around this project, and those who want to contribute to its development can enroll in the various created groups.
Jmol is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in science category and is available to all software users as a free download.
