Note: In the Figures below, the left figure is a two-dimensional (ChemDraw) sketch of the monomer and the right figure is a three-dimensional stick representation of the same monomer. In the 3-D stick representation, the carbon are green, the chlorine is yellow, and the hydrogens are white. To view the molecules interactively, please use RASMOL. To download the pdb files for viewing and rotating the monomers, please click on the appropriate compound name below,on the 2D representation, or on the stick representation of the monomer.

If you want to view multiple compounds simultaneously, please download each pdb file and save on your computer. Then open RASMOL outside of Netscape.
