Hi, I didn't find any possibility to display formal charges of a molecule. One of our "problem molecules" is ozone O3. In our lectures we must use two mesomeric resonance formulas such as O(-) - O(+) = O <-> O = O(+) - O(-). How to display the formal charges, how the real symmetry of the molecule ?
To my knowlegde there is only one program (available as applets) which can display such formulas, see attachement.
But I want to use Jmol. We like ist because of the marvelous features.
Is there any possibilty to add the formal charges to an atom in an molecule, such as in the attachement.
Regards, Hans

    I've moved this into the jmol-users list for discussion of the solution(s).
