Hypercube Announces Upcoming Release of HyperChem Professional Release 7
October 15, 2001
Gainesville, Florida - Hypercube, Inc., developers of the popular PC based chemical molecular modeling package, HyperChemâ, today announced its newest version of HyperChem Professional for Windows 98, NT, ME, 2000 and XP. This new Release 7 of HyperChem, which introduces major enhancements in functionality, is expected to ship in the first quarter of 2002. Additionally, Hypercube announces that all purchases of upgrades to or new copies of the current HyperChem Pro Release 6 made between October 15, 2001 and the new version release are eligible for free upgrades to Release 7.
An important new capability in HyperChem Pro Release 7 is HyperDFT, a Density Functional Theory (DFT) package. DFT is a relatively new mathematical method for the quantum mechanical computation of the ground state properties of molecules and solids. The 1998 Nobel Prize was awarded for fundamental work on Density Functional Theory. HyperChem Pro Release 7 contains an extremely rich selection of density functionals and an easy to use interface that allows its users to perform accurate, state-of-the-art, molecular computations. HyperDFT provides reliable answers for molecular systems that are difficult to address using conventional ab initio methods.
Also incorporated into Release 7 is HyperNMR, a package that performs a priori quantum mechanical simulation of NMR spectra, and HyperChem Data, a molecular database product, each previously sold separately as modules. In addition to other improvements, Release 7 includes a new very fast semi-empirical method, Typed Neglect of Differential Overlap (TNDO), parameterized for accurate general purpose computations.
Pricing (in $US) for HyperChem Professional Release 7 remains $995 (Academic) and $1495 (Commercial). Discounted pricing is available for upgrades from previous versions. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, visit our website www.hyper.com, or call 1-800-960-1871 for more information.
HyperChem is an exceptionally powerful and easy to use desktop molecular modeling program. It is a popular and well-known molecular modeling solution for researchers, educators, and students alike. It is prized for the ready access it provides to a wide range of computation and visualization methods.
