Building certain polymers


I am using Polymer Builder for the first time. I am trying to build teo polymers. One of them is called PE-OC6ImCl (made up of O, Cl anions, N and the aromatic benzene like hexagons) and the other is TBT-OC6ImCl (made up of N,S, O and Cl together with the aromatic benzene like hexagons). (1) Are these implemented in polymer Builder? If not, is there a way that Polymer builder outputs the coordinates of the positions of the atoms?

(2) The structures I have are oligomers. Can I specifiy how many monomers there will be, or repeated structures.

Thanks for your help

    Hi, Thanks for using PolymerModeler. The polymers you listed are not implemented in the tool, but you can upload arbitrary monomers in z-matrix format. You can use tools like Babel to create the z-matrix files, then upload the monomers and specify

    how those monomers are used to build chains (e.g. repeated in a pattern).
