Free software transforms the way users see and draw molecules.

torchV10lite, released by Cresset BioMolecular Discovery Ltd, is a free 3D molecular viewer, sketcher and editor.

Not only does it handle 2D and 3D structures, it also shows users the molecular field patterns of their molecules, giving a powerful visual representation of their physicochemical properties.

torchV10lite enables users to compare the Structure Activity Relationship (SAR) of up to 10,000 molecules, giving users a rich, informative view of how their compounds behave in biological systems.

torchV10lite is the update to Cresset’s popular FieldView application. It supports the next-generation XED3 force field for more accurate electrostatics, as well as a host of new features.

Support for downloading and viewing PDB files, viewing protein-ligand interactions and simple cheminformatics tools, including 2D Tanimoto similarity, have all been added while maintaining the simplicity and ease of use that Cresset’s users expect.

Dr Robert Scoffin, CEO of Cresset, says, “torchV10lite brings the next generation of Cresset’s molecular field technology to every chemist’s desktop. If you have any doubt about the power of fields to transform the way you see and understand your molecules, then download it for free today. Our academic customers in particular will find it powerful as a teaching tool.”

Dr Raj Gosain of the University of Southampton, UK, praises the power of Cresset’s molecular field software saying, “Our students who use the Cresset systems in their projects tend to gain an affinity with medicinal chemistry concepts far earlier than those who do strictly organic projects.”

Assistant Professor of Chemistry Daniel Barr at Utica College, NY, USA, describes how Cresset’s fields help his students to “think about how molecules look to each other.”

He says ”I use it in classes to help students visualize molecules and for my own research.”
