Category GEOM_BOND

Name:
'_geom_bond_[]'

Definition:

   Data items in the GEOM_BOND category record details about
   bonds as calculated from the ATOM, CELL
   and SYMMETRY data.

Examples:

Example 1 - based on data set TOZ of Willis, Beckwith & Tozer [Acta Cryst. (1991), C47, 2276-2277].

Example 2 - An example showing a listing of only symmetry-unique bonds. In high-symmetry structures when many bonds are related by symmetry, it may not be necessary or desirable to list all the bonds in the environment of the first named atom. Some users may wish to give only the symmetry-independent distances and supply a multiplicity to indicate how many such bonds are found in the atomic environment.

Example 3 - The same structure as in Example 2, but where the multiplicity is given with a full bond list. Note the use of a value of 0 for _geom_bond_multiplicity in such a case.
