    there is still room for improvement for graphical data

    The overall simulations of MolCToy are good except for the graphical data. Different colors should be used to identify the different parameters being plotted.

    This tool gives you a better understanding of how molecular conduction works and the graphs help you visualize how changes in different variables effect the I/V characteristics.

    Very user friendly, worth a try.

    suggestions 1. make each plot of a simulation a different color.

    2. More explanation of what the graphs mean.
