Update to MayaChemTools


MayaChemTools is an ever increasing collection of python and perl scripts that support cheminformatics and computational chemistry.

The latest addition are based on PSI4 an open-source quantum chemistry package.

PSI4 provides a wide variety of quantum chemical methods using state-of-the-art numerical methods and algorithms. Several parts of the code feature shared-memory parallelization to run efficiently on multi-core machines. An advanced parser written in Python allows the user input to have a very simple style for routine computations, but it can also automate very complex tasks with ease.

The command line Python scripts based on Psi4 provide functionality for the following tasks:

  • Calculation of single point energies
  • Calculation of molecular properties and partial charges
  • Performing structure minimization
  • Generating molecular conformations
  • Visualizing frontier molecular orbitals and dual descriptors
  • Visualizing electrostatic potential on densities and molecular surfaces
