ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
Uses the Easy C Base (TM) interface which
provides a Unified Graphical Interface to
Group Contribution Methods. Methods implemented
in this version are Fedors (calculates Density,
Cohesive Energy, and Solubility Parameter),
and Joback (calculates Critical Properties,
Heat Capacity, Liquid Viscosity, Enthalpy of
Formation, Gibbs Energy of Formation, Enthalpy
of Vaporization, Enthalpy of Fusion, Boiling and
Freezing Points). Name the structures and save
calculation results and text with them. Use the
clipboard to copy text and structures to other
applications. Search the directory containing
the structure files using exact structure,
a substructure, or fragments of a structure. Search
the directory for a string that occurs in the
structure's name or associated text. Combine the
structure search with a string search. Search results
display structure name and file name. Edit structures
and text using the standard Windows Edit menu commands.
The Molecular Formula and Weight are continuously
updated as you draw or edit. Open multiple files.
Requires Windows 3.1. CompuServe SWREG 6294.
