The Cyclaplex™ program was developed to simulate combinatorial processes that give rise to linear and cyclic oligomers. The program is a generalization of PorphyrinViLiGe™ and is applicable to diverse macrocycles derived from modular constituents. The program was conceived, developed and tested by Drs. Masahiko Taniguchi, Hai Du, and Jonathan S. Lindsey from summer 2012 – spring 2013. The program and results are described in the following article:
"Enumeration of Virtual Libraries of Combinatorial Modular Macrocyclic (Bracelet, Necklace) Architectures and their Linear Counterparts," Taniguchi, M.; Du, H.; Lindsey, J. S. J. Chem. Info. Model. 2013, 53, 220-2216.
An illustration of the use of Cyclaplex™ is provided in the following paper:
"Statistical Considerations on the Formation of Circular Photosynthetic Light-Harvesting Complexes from Rhodopseudomonas palustris," Taniguchi, M.; Henry, S.; Cogdell, R. J.; Lindsey, J. S. Photosyn. Res. 2014, 121, 49–60.
Operating system requirements
- Cyclaplex™ runs under Windows.
- There is no Macintosh version of Cyclaplex™.
