Using OpenMOPAC and WebMO throughout the Chemistry Curriculum

Will Polik


OpenMOPAC is a fast and accurate semi-empirical computational chemistry program. WebMO is an intuitive and accessible web-based interface to computational chemistry programs. Together they provide powerful, low-cost access to computational chemistry for education and research. Usage examples abound that enhance student learning in general, analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. Various OpenMOPAC-WebMO implementations and applications will be presented.
