MedeA® Polymer Builder

The MedeA PolymerBuilder creates polymer models from specified repeat units and polymerization information. You can create homopolymers with two clicks from a library of more than 120 repeat units; and complex copolymers with additional rules and appropriate sequence definitions. If you need to define terminations or backbone angle you can tune the standard defaults.

The MedeA PolymerBuilder is simple for basic construction yet sophisticated for even the most demanding builds. The result is quality polymer models based on more than 20 years of experience in computational polymer science.
