Solid-G is a PC program that allows facile computation of ligand solid angles in organometallic compounds. The solid angles are converted to percentages (G-values) that illustrate the extent to which each ligand shields the central metal. Three figures on the right illustrate the program’s capability. The top figure is a scheme of a five-coordinate complex methanol(phthalocyaninato)magnesium(II) and the animated GIF below represents the steric behavior of the two ligands (monodentate methanol and tetradentate phthalocyaninato) – each ligand and its shadow are assigned a color. The bottom figure demonstrates that Solid-G can handle quite complex compounds with many ligands and measure steric interaction between the ligands.

The program is free to use (at your own risk), but the paper by I.A.Guzei, M. Wendt.  Dalton Trans., 2006, 3991–3999 must be referenced.

The principles implemented in the program are described in I.A.Guzei, M. Wendt.  Dalton Trans., 2006, 3991–3999.

Program Solid-G has been referenced in at least 115 papers as of August 5, 2019. These references are listed at the bottom of this page.

Program download and installation instructions

The zip file contains all the files you need.

Create a
directory and extract all the files into it.  Then run Solid-G.exe.  The instructions on how to use the program (quite simple really) are displayed via the “Manual” button.

The file with extension .xyz is an example input file.

You can open the xyz file and then go from one activated button to the next.  The blue progress bar can sometimes get stuck but the calculations will continue regardless.  In my experience the program has never hung during normal operation.  The input coordinates should be Cartesian rather than fractional.

If you want a smooth picture in the visualizer (Start Viewer button) use
view->define bound sphere->granularity
and set it to a multiple of 180.  900 works well. Then you can copy and paste pictures into other programs.

Should you have questions don’t hesitate to e-mail Dr. Ilia Guzei.
