Custom Chemical Graphics

I now have a Custom Chemical Graphics service for all your molecular imagery needs! :)

tRNA image


I have written a program called vrml2pov that converts VRML files into POV-format.



I have written a program I call PovChem that makes very high-quality pictures of molecular models. In here are some examples of what this program can do.

DNA Graphics

DNA Graphics!

Okay, graphics-seekers, here are some pictures of DNA that I've created with PovChem, in a gallery format.

Guanine Host I wrote and used PovChem as part of my Ph.D. research, which included hydrogen bonding host-guest chemistry, and triple helical DNA. (I also wrote the group's Web homepage.)

3D Attractor My friend John Holder and I have been playing with 3D attractors, and their visual representation. Here is a gallery of some results so far.

Personal Pictures This is just a collection of various pictures I've taken over the years, fancying myself a photographer.
