Reaction Site Tool

Reaction Sites can be specified on bonds. Using the star cursor, point to each bond in turn that you want to assign a reaction site label to and click. The options are:

CC - this bond is completely changed, that is either formed or broken.

PC - this bond is partially changed, that is the bond value changes, for example an exact bond becomes normalized.

XC - the bond may be either completely or partially changed.

NC - the bond is unchanged.

NON - no reaction site specification is declared.

Note: Reaction tools are disabled for normal drawing modes. Select the Rxn Tool from the toolbar or choose Show Reactions from the Display Menu.
