Hi Tom,

There are several programs for Molecular Modelling on PC. I don,t know if all 
three allow energy minimisation.

1) Desktop Molecular Modeller (DTMM) for Windows from Oxford University Press 
- Electronic Publishing. This is obviously a Commercial Package which does do 
Energy Minimisation.

2) Nemesis for Windows  from Oxford Molecular. This is a commercial Package. I 
don't know if this progran does energy minimisation.

3) Rasmol (RasWin). This is freeware. Available from I don't 
think this program does energy minimisation. Be careful to download the 
windows version.

There are education prices, if not CHEST deals, for both DTMM and Nemesis.

All the best
