Structure World was originally designed to accompany a senior to graduate level special topics course in Solid State Chemistry, but is also useful in other introductory inorganic courses. It should therefore be of interest to inorganic chemists everywhere.
To make the best use of these pages, you will want to install a current copy of MDL's Chime Plug-In in your broswer [Note: MDL has never released a version for Mac OS X - be sure to contact them and complain]. Once you've done this you can view a variety of three dimensional inorganic crystal structures and manipulate them in real time!
So far we have only a limited number of structures on display, but more will be added as time and demand permits. While we use a lot of graphics on these pages, we have minimized the use of multiple colors etc. to ensure that most of the views are no more than 10K each.
