  • 8. Distributions / Marvin Beans • Marvin Beans • Recommended for developers – Desktop applications – Quick GUI building (deployment with Installer, – Easy customization Java Web Start) – Full API (with JavaBean – Direct manipulation of support) for developers to use molecules Marvin components in applications • Free for open access, non – Documentation and examples commercial websites • Recommended for end-users • Free for academic research – Easy installation and teaching – Support Java 1.4 capable • Free for Evaluation platforms (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux/Unix) – Command line molecule converter – Applications are free for end- users
  • 9. Distributions / Marvin Applets • Marvin Applets • For web developers – Browser-independent – Simple web base solution for Marvin deployment integration into web pages – Modular architecture – Wide range of layout ensures short download customization time – API to control the applets – Minimum requirement from JavaScript (Java 1.4 capable – Documentation and browsers) examples • Free for open access, non commercial websites • Free for academic research and teaching • Free for Evaluation
  • 10. Web Browser Compatibility •Internet Explorer •Firefox •Mozilla •Netscape •Safari •Opera
  • 11. Applet Specific Features • Using Swing GUI components, the appropriate version for the browser / JRE is automatically selected • Signed (trusted) applets enable access to local files, system clipboard and allow printing. • Applet API accessible from JavaScript to – fetch the current structure from the applet and send it to the server for further processing. – change the structure or display options of the applet without reloading the page.
  • 12. Custom Marvin Applets Layout
  • 13. Developing with Marvin Beans • Use Marvin Beans to add MarvinSketch or MarvinView as a graphical component to your standalone application Additional API is accessible for - Import / Export - Performing calculations with plugins - 2D and 3D cleaning of structures - All operations accessible in the GUIs are also available in the API.
  • 14. Molecule Sketching Features • Drawing molecules, • Link nodes reactions, residues • Attached data • Isotopes, charges, • Graphic objects (lines, radicals arrows, boxes, text) • Stereo features: • Curved electron arrows – tetrahedral (R/S) • Multi-page layout – double bond (E/Z) – diastereomer • Rich compound format: (Abs/And/Not) – Fonts • Reaction (Inv/Ret) – Colors – Bond thickness • Templates, aliases, – Journal drawing styles to pseudo atoms load/save • Abbreviated groups, • 3D sketching Multiple groups
  • 15. Isotopes, Charges, Radicals
  • 16. Stereo Features, Lone Pairs
  • 17. Reactions

  • 23. Formatting, customizing
  • 24. Customizing drawings • Add graphic objects (lines, arrows, boxes, text boxes) • Possible to change font, color, wire thickness • Save/load different publication styles • Multi-paged documents
  • 25. MarvinSpace Integration • Properties calculated by plugins can be visualized using MarvinSpace
  • 26. Query and General Chemistry Features • Query design features • Basic chemistry functions: – Generic atoms, generic bonds – Aromatization/dearomatization – Atom lists/not lists – Automatic stereo configuration – Query properties: hydrogen (R/S, E/Z) count, connection count, – Automatic reaction component number of explicit connections, identification ring count, smallest ring size, – Automatic reaction mapping ring bond count, substitution – Cleaning 2D layout count, unsaturation, aromatic/aliphatic atom – 3D geometry optimization – Topology (ring/chain) – Reacting center – R-group queries – Occurence – RestH – If-Then conditions – Recursive SMARTS
  • 27. R-group Queries
  • 28. Structure Cleaning • Cleaning Options • 2D CC(C)NCC(O)COC1=C2C=C(C)NC2=CC=C1 – optional optimization – wedge bonds cleaning topology • 3D – fast clean – find low energy conformer – optional hydrogenization – optional optimization – generate conformers 2D 3D
  • 29. Display Conformers • Using the conformers plugin one can generate the most likely 3D structures and select a suitable one • The corresponding energies are also calculated for a given conformation

Advanced (plugin based) Functions • Elemental Analysis • IUPAC Name • Protonation (pKa, Major Microspecies, Isoelectric Point) • Partitioning (logP, logD) • Charge (Charge, Polarizability, Orbital Electronegativity) • Isomers (Tautomers, Resonance, Stereoisomers) • Conformation (Conformers, Molecular Dynamics) • Geometry (Topology analysis, Geometry, Polar surface area (2D), Molecular Surface Area (3D)) • Markush Enumeration • Other (H-bond donor/acceptor, Huckel Analysis, Refractivity)
  • 31. Calculator Plugins • ChemAxon’s plugin loading mechanism enables Marvin to provide access to a wide range of dynamically loaded calculation tools • A set of plugins already provided by ChemAxon for a separate license key (single trial is included in every distributions for plugins) • Users can easily add their own calculator plugins to this framework
  • 32. 2D & 3D Structure Visualization • Accurate representation • Rich visualization options • Various display modes (wireframe, ball&stick, spacefill, etc.) - Enable/disable hydrogen visibility (explicit / implicit, on hetero and/or terminal) - Optional display of stereo information - Various rotation modes - Optional valence and reaction error highlighting in sketcher
