View, Analyse and Truly Understand Molecular Structures and Their Properties with Mercury
See chemistry in 3D and generate high-definition, customized images, animations, and 3D models of molecules. Analyse chemical and physical properties with informatics-based insights drawn from empirical data in the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD).
Explore your structure your way - follow unit contacts, grow the view in any direction, or examine the unit cell. Customize the display and annotations to show what matters to you.
Comprehensive range of visualization options
Communicate your work effectively to others with clear visuals — choose from pre-build styles, or create your own. Generate high-resolution images of molecular structures for publication, or go further with animations and 3D print files.
Customize to display specific features
Show ellipsoids, polyhedra, packing diagrams, Miller planes, voids, BFDH morphologies and more to illustrate the features important to you.
Display hydrogen bond contacts
Customize the contacts and grow your structure in any specific direction, to explore the solid form and understand its physical properties.
Access advanced analysis tools
Perform your analyses in the Mercury interface, with a host of analytical tools from CSD-Discovery and CSD-Materials built in. (See the full range of tools available for academics in our free or paid versions, and for commercial users in different packages)
Explore published or proprietary structures
Apply all these features to published or new structures — Mercury can open common file formats including .cif .mol .mol2 .pdb .aux and more.
