This stereo image (for crossed eyes) shows RasMol's rendering of double bonds. In reality, the double bonds would be delocalized due to resonance, but RasMol currently has no way to represent this. In order to show double bonds, RasMol requires that CONECT records be included in the PDB file (see details in the FAQ). This image was generated from alprazol.pdb*. The original PDB (without CONECT records) was obtained from Dave Woodcock's Chemistry Site at Okanagan U College, BC CA, where you can find additional information about the antianxiety drug Alprazolam (Xanax, Upjohn) and its pharmacology.

*Note that Chime (ver. 0.9c) does not display double bonds.
