Molecular Modeling Software

Buijs Advice & Consultancy is the Dutch Sales Partner For Wavefunction (www.wavefun.com).

Software Products for Industry and Academia

Spartan’16 offers a full range of Molecular Mechanics and Quantum Chemical methods including extensive modern Density Functional, Moller Plesset, Advanced Correlated approaches and Thermochemistry recipes.
Spartan’16 Parallel Suite provides all the features of Spartan’16, but adds: multi-core parallel processing for ab-initio, density functional, RI-MPT, and T1 calculations, the full SMD and SSPD data collections, and the ability to act as a compute server for other Spartan’16 licenses or the iSpartan molecular modeling app. The Spartan’16 Parallel Suite is the dominant version used in academic, government, and commercial research

Software Products for Education

Apart from molecular modelling software for academic and industrial research applications, Wavefunction offers also a range of educational software.
Spartan Student Edition is a serious molecular modeling package which can be used from high school to bachelor phase in academic education in Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering
ODYSSEY® is a unique teaching program for introductory and general chemistry classes in middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities. Utilizing scientifically-based molecular dynamics simulations, ODYSSEY provides an interactive environment for learning and exploration.
