Our Modmol© APP is now available!

We are proud to announce the release of our AR app Modmol©.

Modmol© is an application for mobile devices that allows the visualization and editing of molecules within an environment augmented reality. The app is available in the GooglePlay Store and App Store.

ModMol © generates a molecular representation of the structure in three dimensions for organic, inorganic and biomolecular systems, as well as general information about them (name, formula, properties, etc.). We would constantly update the database, in order to include meaningful examples in each group. In addition, the application is capable of opening any file that contains a Cartesian coordinate structure that has been saved on the mobile device, thus allowing its viewing and manipulation.

ModMol © also allows molecular editing using any element of the periodic table and has a library of standard fragments and functional groups that can be used in such editing.

The tool is designed to be a repository capable of helping Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Biology and Pharmacy students to visualize molecular structures, with special emphasis on aspects such as stereochemistry. Students will be able to observe three-dimensional structures of different molecules and nanostructures while studying their chemical-physical properties and reactivity, thus complementing the teaching material available to them.

On the other hand, researchers who want to visualize a compound on which they are working can do so easily, also having the possibility of modifying, editing and saving it from their own mobile device.

This project has been carried out thanks to the aid received by the “Maria de Maeztu Units of Excellence” 2017 program, funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation and the State Research Agency, and developed by , a company belonging to the Mediapro Group (https://www.mediapro.tv).
