3D Rendering of a Self-Assembled Dendrimer

A molecular mechanics modeled structure of a hexamer formed by hydrogen-bond mediated assembly of complimentary acceptor-acceptor-donor-donor ditopic units carrying dendrons. The structure was modeled in Cerius2, the data converted using mol2mel, and the models were rendered in Maya.
