A software for the study of the chemical structure and properties of biologically active molecules was developed. The software refers to 95 compounds belonging to the following families : eicosanoids (prostaglandins, prostacyclins and thromboxanes), steroids (hormones and vitamins), antibiotics, opioids and vitamins. Molecular graphics of ball-stick and space-filling models are shown on a display, together with some physical, chemical and biological properties of the compounds.

Key words: Biologically active substance, Molecular structure, Molecular graphics, Chemical education, CAI, Data base
