Wavefunction Releases 2 New Macintosh OS X Versions!

November 15, 2002 Wavefunction, Inc. announces the release of Spartan'02 for Macintosh. This program is part of the new line of Spartan software, combining an entirely new set of powerful computational engines with increased speed and the renowned user-friendly interface. This Macintosh version is the first to run exclusively under OS X, taking advantage of fully preemptive multi-tasking, hardware accelerated open GL graphics, and a multi-button mouse.

Spartan'02 for Macintosh allows chemists to:
Build, display, manipulate and align organic, inorganic and organometallic molecules, and polypeptides. A polynucleotides builder, automatic tautomer detector, ribbon style displays for biopolymers, and linear regression analysis will be included in a free maintenance release to all Spartan'02 for Macintosh customers.

Computational methods include:
SVWN, BP, BLYP and B3LYP density functional for ground and excited states
MP2 and LMP2
CIS and CIS(D) for excited states
SYBYL and MMFF molecular mechanics
AM1, PM3 including parameters for transition metals, MNDO, MNDO/d
Solvation — AM1-SM5.4 semi-empirical
Hartree-Fock, molecular orbital
STO-3G, 3-21G, 6-31G*, 6-311G*
EDF1 density functional for ground and excited states
MP3 and MP4
OD, and OD(T)
cc-pVDZ, cc-pVTZ, and cc-pVQZ basis sets
Pseudopotential basis sets for calculations on molecules with heavy elements
