Jmol + JSmol Documentation

Default colors used by Jmol

Several users have asked about a guide to colors used by Jmol by default.

This documentation is now available on Jmol website here. Suggestions are welcome for future improvements, via jmol-users mailing list.

The plan is:

  • colors for atoms (by element) --done
  • colors for chains --done
  • colors for groups / residues --done
  • alternative color patterns: Jmol, Rasmol, DRuMS --partly done
  • anything else?

Support for isotopes

Common isotopes are recognized by Jmol and colored slightly lighter or darker than the element color:

.........(color code)......(script syntax)
2H => [xFFFFC0] => _2H, D, deuterium
3H => [xFFFFA0] => _3H, T, tritium
11C => [xD8D8D8] => _11C (added on 29 Nov. 2007)
13C => [x505050] => _13C
14C => [x404040] => _14C
15N => [x105050] => _15N
