CCL: MM/MD program for Windows PC

Thank you very much, Brian!

Next-Generation Molecular Workbench is really useful instrument for simple illustration of physics, chemistry and biology and I added in a collection of the lessons on my youtube channel:

I also installed LAMMPS executables on my Windows PC but may take some times for me to learn it myself and to generate a (relatively) simple algorithm of generating some lessons which high school students or at least teachers can use. If someone who reads this message is LAMMPS experts and is willing to help, it would be great!

I did a quick Google search for "interactive molecular model of condensation", and discovered this:" target="_blank">

I have no experience with them at all, and cannot make any particular recommendation. The demonstration on the landing page seems exactly like what you describe, though. I'm not sure how you would go about making use of their might involve becoming one of their "partners"?

Good luck,

I need something which students and teachers with no professional chemistry background could use as demo lessons of "virtual chemistry". Like a virtual lab. The best analogy is chemistry demonstration in the class by mixing some liquids with a visual result: color change, gas or sediment, etc. In this case the visual effects would be conformation changes or formation of a molecular cluster (temperature down) or cluster evaporation (temperature up). There are plenty movies on youtube of any level of complexity but they would not provide a hands-on experience and ability to change some parameters to get feeling of doing a "chemistry experiment".

If this is for noncommercial use, you could take a look at the Sophia plugin to UCSF Chimera; both are free downloads for noncommercial purposes:

However, Sophia may be intended more to teach principles of MD using simple systems, than to teach chemistry per se.  Also developed mainly for Mac although documentation says most features also work on Windows, and while it may be easy for you to install, not necessarily so for students.
