  • Fixed crash in MINIMIZE command when nonexistent intensity curve(s) defined.

  • Fixed command PRINT=ALLGEOM, which printed same c-values when called multiple times.

  • Improved stability of refining models with multiple molecules and variation of more then one concentration parameter.

  • More advanced usage of initial t-prefactor of the GED intensity curves has been implemented in the procedure for construction of additive backgrounds.

  • The flexibility of spline background in STANDARD procedure can be defined explicitly.

  • In the procedure of reading the cartesian coordinates (MOLXYZ) an automatic atom renumeration is now possible with the RENUM command, implemeted in exactly the same way as for the reading of amplitudes.

  • A new key PrintEsdFactor has been introduced, which controls the value of factor for multiplying printed out standard deviations of bonds, angles and torsions.

A new update of the stable version of UNEX. Small improvements were mainly introduced:

  • Wider range of validity for the values of readed sM(s) curves has been made.

  • Small changes in printing format for commands PRINT=BOND, =ANGLE and =TORSION.

  • Improvements introduced to SBGL command.

23 March 2010: UNEX 1.5.3

The stable version of UNEX has been updated. Fixed different behaviour of minimization process depending on the order of conformers introducing in complicated models. Results obtained by the previous versions can be somewhat non-optimal with respect to final structural R-factors. This could happen for inadequate and numerically unstable models, which are not used in normal practice. Nevertheless, R-factors strictly correspond to the obtained parameters.

3 March 2010: UNEX 1.5.2

The work on the UNEX 2.0 is in progress. UNEX 1.5.2 has been released. The list of changes:

The PMViewMol3D program has been updated to version 0.2.3.

24 June 2009: UNEX 1.5.1 has been released

We are intensively working on the new version of the UNEX program. Meanwhile, the updated UNEX 1.5.1 has been released with little changes:

  • A new type of potential function has been added. Splines can be used for arbitrary potential functions.

  • Cartesian coordinates can be introduced in arbitrary order if numbers of atoms are defined explicitly. This is useful in case of importing coordinates from another calculations with different atom numbering schemes.

  • A potential bug with calculation of Cartesian coordinates from z-matrix has been fixed.

  • The command PRINT=ALLGEOM,mol_name is now able to generate more internal coordinates for distorted molecules.

4 May 2009

Results of our recent GED study of N-Chlorosuccinimide molecule have been published in the Structural Chemistry. Also in this work we have studied vibrational spectra and have given a new assignment of some lines. Interestingly, the scaling of harmonic and cubic force fields does not improve agreement of experimental data with model in the GED inverse problem.

24 February 2009

A new article has been published in the Russ. J. Phys. Chem. A to describe results of our gas electron diffraction study of N-Methylsuccinimide molecule. In this work an inverse problem was solved with help of robust (insensitive to errors in experimental data) LSQ method.
