Open Babel

Open Babel

Open Babel is software to convert and manipulate chemical data files. It is an open, collaborative project allowing anyone to search, convert, analyze, or store data from molecular modeling, chemistry, biochemistry, or related areas.

Open Babel is a free, open-source version of the Babel chemistry file translation program. Open Babel is a project designed to pick up where Babel left off, as a cross-platform program and library designed to interconvert between many file formats used in molecular modeling, computational chemistry, and many related areas.

The command-line interface is mostly identical to the old 'babel' executable and recognizes these file formats among many others: Alchemy, ChemDraw, CML, GAMESS, Gaussian, HyperChem, MDL Isis and Molfile, MOPAC, MPQC, PDB, SMILES and XYZ.
