Bist stands for bidimensional structures (in italian it sounds like "beast" in english ) and is a chemical drawing tool. It is focused on organic chemistry but it may be useful also for chemists or teacher as well.

Bist support many of the formalism used to describe molecoles structures like single bond, double bond, stereospecific bond, charges, resonance arrows, lone pairs etc...

It can export both postscript and png formats.

Currently portability is not my goal so only GNU/Linux platform is supported. However any effort in this direction is appreciated so feel free to ask me about any porting question. Please remember that bist is actually in a beta stage of development so i strongly suggest you to not using it except for testing or hacking purpose. Bist is free software released under GNU GPL version 3

License GNU General Public License V3 or later
Development Status
: 4 - Beta

Details (job description, contact ...):

As bist is now able to make a reasonably good substructure search will be possible to generate simple table-based prediction IR spectrum .

I think would be great if someone could help me sending some characteristic group with is associated IR peak(s). All you should do is draw the fragment with bist, add to the image the frequency of the peak or peaks and their amplitude (strong,medium,weak).

When finished just mail me the file ( cage at katamail dot com ).

You can find the up to date directory with fragments on the GNA! SVN repository (

Thanks in advance for your help!
