Checking it will prevent an overlapping of labels at energy axis.

[January 2011]

Resolved problem with contactform

[April 2010] Chemissian 1.771 released

  • Fixed a bug occurring when reading g-functions from Gaussian: basis set was not correctly read, therefore density maps could be slightly inaccurate.
  • UPDATED Improved "MO Composition" window:

Updated molecular orbital composition window

  • UPDATED Now it is easier to associate text with selected MO level in the MO diagram editor: just press '.' on the keyboard and "Set MO Text" window will be shown and activated for text entering. Typed text will be automatically saved (there is now need now to press "Set" button).



[22 February 2010] Chemissian 1.77 released - what's new?

  • UPDATED "AO Contribution in each MO Tool" --> "Analyze MO Compositions Tool":
    • Now it is possible to consider contributions to the molecular orbitals by atomic orbitals, by atomic shells, by angular momentum ("spherical harmonics"), by atoms and by molecular fragments (e.g. groups of atoms).
  • UPDATED "AO Coefficients window" -->"MO Composition window":
    • This window displays composition of the current MO in molecular orbitals energy level diagram editor. And now by clicking on the "option" button it is possible to configure how the contributions to the MO will be calculated (by AOs, atoms, fragments, etc. or just LCAO-MO coefficient (default)).
  • UPDATED "Analyze populations and valences tool" -
    • Now it is possible to group populations and valences by angular momentum.

[12 February 2010] Chemissian 1.751 released

Some problems when working in Windows Vista/Seven were solved.

[9 February 2010] Chemissian 1.75 released - what's new?

  • "Analyze populations tool" --> "Analyze populations and valences tool":
    NEWCalculate valence indexes for atoms, atomic orbitals, shells and molecular fragments.
    For more details see Valences and Population analysis (and online help).
  • UPDATED "Analyze electronic density tool" improvements (in 2D mode):
    • Bonds between atoms are now shown.
    • All atoms have individual sizes and colors.
    • You can specify atoms which are to be shown: use trackbar interface element near the "Show structure" checkbox to set the "cut" distance and it will be shown only those atoms whose distance to the plane less than this "cut" distance. This option is usefull when there are many atoms in molecule and they hide the density map plane.
    • Use mouse wheel to Zoom In / Zoom Out the contour density map plot and left mouse button to "drag" the plane.
  • For more details see online help
  • Other small improvements
