You can download the executable file for the Windows version of Mopac 6 or MOPAC 7 (from www.webmo.net) or MOPAC 7 (from CCL)
Here is an application to help you write the input file for MOPAC calculations. You can run it from our web site or please feel free to copy the source to your own computer. If you copy the application to your own system, you can run it by opening the "zmatrix.html" file from the browser menu.
Mass Spectrometry: The
Fragment Finder
finds the possible formulas that match a given molar mass.
Then the M+1 and M+2 ratios and the exact masses of each of the possible
fragments is calculated.
Formula Finder
finds the possible formulas that match a given molar mass and several
fragments.
Then the M+1 and M+2 ratios and the exact masses of each of the possible
fragments is calculated.
Isotope Cluster
calculates the isotope pattern for a given molecular formula. It includes
3rd and 4th period representative and transition metal elements.
Dynamic NMR: Exchange: Chemical Exchange Lineshape Simulation for 2 site exchange (uses Java for plotting). If you don't want to use the Java dependent version use Exchange(Netscape) or Exchange(IE) for Internet Explorer.
Group Theory: ABC is an applet that calculates the point group for a molecule.
Equilibrium Constants from Molecular Structure is an applet that uses statistical mechanics to calculate the equilibrium constant for a simple bimolecular chemical reaction involving diatomic molecules and atoms. Equilibrium Constants for Polyatomics is for reactions involving polyatomic molecules.
The Classical Trajectory Reaction Dynamics applets calculate trajectories for the endothermic-late barrier H + HF and the exothermic-early barrier H + HBr reactions.
Nonlinear Least Squares Curve Fitting does curve fits for a variety of useful equations and gives the uncertainty in the fit parameters. A 4-parameter version is also available.
Matrix Diagonalization The eigen JavaScript application diagonalizes real, symmetric matrices. This application is useful for Huckel molecular orbital calculations. Huckel Molecular Orbital Instructions are available.
HTML Editor is a JavaScript based HTML editor that you can use to design your own web pages.
LetrSet is a JavaScript based HTML type setter that you can use to add
fa^{n}cy
headings to your own web pages. A page of examples is available in the
LetrSet Gallery.
