This page contains multimedia files of chemical structures used in Chem 341. These are provided in several formats. In order to download any of the files to your hard drive, right click (Windows) or ctrl-click (Mac) and select to save it on your computer.

PDB (protein data bank) files are 3D renderings of chemical compounds that can be visualized and manipulated in many ways. There are a number of free PDB viewers available for Mac, Windows and Linux. I would recommend Swiss PDB Viewer.

For a large list of other PDB viewers, please visit the RCSB Protein Databank web site.

QUICKTIME MoviesI have put some animations together as quicktime movies. These can be viewed in a browser or on your computer using Apple’s free Quicktime software for Mac and PC’s.
