structures. Starting from the first version in 1979 the software has been
continously improved and updated. It provides:
Various strategies for step-wise building up crystal structure models
Facility to work with two crystal structures at the same time
Tools for the comparison of two crystal structures
Plotting of ball-and-stick models, thermal ellipsoids and coordination
Symmetry analysis and transformation, space group determination
Calculation of interatomic distances, angles and torsion angles
Interfaces to SHELX, ORTEP, SCHAKAL, MISSYM, LAZY PULVERIX
KPLOT is available free-of-charge and can be downloaded from
one of the links at the bottom of this page. For further information
