Calculator Plugins


Calculator Plugins are modules of ChemAxon's Marvin and JChem cheminformatics platforms which calculate physico-chemical properties from chemical structures. Calculator Plugins currently cover a wide range of life-science-related properties.

Short usage guide

They are available directly from Marvin, Instant JChem and Reactor applications, and also from command line, API, or via ChemAxon's Chemical Terms language. The calculations can be performed in single or batch mode.

  • The available calculator plugins are located in the Calculations menu in the graphical user interface of MarvinSketch, and in the Tools menu in MarvinView.

  • cxcalc is the command line tool of the Calculator Plugin. Batch processing is available using cxcalc (see the list of calculations accessible from cxcalc).

  • Calculators are used in the Chemical Terms language to calculate combinations of properties (like Lipinski's rule of 5) in an easy way. Learn more about it in the Chemical Terms section.

  • Plugin calculations can be used for filtering results of database searches in JChem Base, Instant JChem and JChem Cartridge.

  • Define smart reaction rules using plugin calculations in Reactor (ChemAxon's virtual reaction processing tool).

  • Plugin calculations can be integrated easily into any Java application. For more information on using calculator plugin Java API, please see our chemaxon.marvin.calculation package.

  • Some of the calculators (such as logP, pKa and Predictor ) can be trained with the user's data via cxtrain.

  • Third-party calculations can be integrated easily into MarvinSketch via the Services module of the graphical user interface. For more information on integrating third-party calculations, see our Setting Services page.
