Welcome to the MOLDRAW home page!


MOLDRAW 32-bits version is the evolution of the former 16-bits version which was developed together with Prof. Davide Viterbo (now at the Dipartimento di Scienze e Tecnologie Avanzate of the University of Piemonte Orientale) and Prof. Giacomo Chiari (now chief scientist at the Getty Conservation Institute) during the last 20 years (P. Ugliengo, D. Viterbo and G. Borzani J. Appl. Cryst. 21, 75 (1988) "MOLDRAW:  Program for the Graphical Manipulation of Molecules on Personal Computers"). MOLDRAW is a freeware program which can be downloaded by students of any degree and researchers of universities and research centers funded by public money.

It is not free for private companies of any kind and its usage is forbidden for projects linked to any extent to military activities. For more details please read the license agreement.
