Introduction of BKChem-workspace
Deleting and correcting
Alkanes, basic modifications
- Drawing the simpliest structures and modifying them is the right thing to do at first to get know a chemical editor
Alkenes, alkynes, types of formulas and size of a structure
- There are lots of types of formulas and each of them should be used in different situations.This is shown on alkenes and alkynes.There
is also a way how to resize a molecule shown.
- Image tutorial also available: How to draw a bond, submenu
Joining more aromatic structures together
- This example is about how to make naphtalene or phenyl-benzene the most easiest way
Adding different groups to hydrocarbons
- An example how to add a substituent of any type to a molecule
Drawing inorganic reactions
- BKChem is not only applicable in organic chemistry, lots of inorganic reactions could be drawn
Easy way to write atom symbols, using 'SHIFT'
- The easiest way how to write atom symbols is really simple, but sometimes a bit complicated mainly when drawing complicated
SHIFT button has a good usage in multiple editing
- Image tutorial also available: Important bond appearence
Atom mode, meanings of buttons and converting structures
- There is a big difference between buttons behind a text line in atom mode, when a molecule is interpreted correctly, it's
easy to work with it then
Converting molecules to linear structures
- Sometimes is very useful, when the main carbon chain or a whole molecule is linear. Side chains could be modified as well.
Scaling and chemistry check
- Simple way how to make molecule bigger or smaler with several other options and introduction of chemistry checker
- Image tutorial also available: Changing size of an object
Drawing a complicated molecule
- It is sometimes hard to decide, where to begin or how to connect two things in a big structure. This example explains everything
on LSD molecule. !!!NOTE: (NH) group is missing at left example:)
Drawing an organic reaction
- These types of reactions usually have a lot of steps, and products of these are complicated structures, which differ one from
another just in small details. Therefore using copying (CTRL-C) and pasting (CTRL-V) is shown.
