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.
