Public Property IsMultiCenter() As Boolean

Return Type



This property returns true if the atom is an multicenter attachment point, else returns false. It refers to a pseudo atom that is disregarded during chemical calculations, but still allows you to create diagrams that look meaningful to an experienced chemist. When highlighted, the atom drawing is shown as a star.
