CPK (Corey,Pauling,Koltun) is a popular color convention for distinguishing atoms of different chemical elements in molecular models.
The CIP (Cahn-Ingold-Prelog) system is rule-based method used in organic chemistry to name the stereoisomers of a molecule. The CIP system assigns an R or S descriptor to each stereocenter and an E or Z descriptor to each double bond so that the configuration of the entire molecule can be specified uniquely.
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a family of specifications of an XML-based file format for describing two-dimensional vector graphics.
- raster image¶
Raster graphics represents of images as an array of pixel or points of color.
- vector image¶
Vector graphics represent images using geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical equations.
