PLATON is a versatile crystallographic tool implementing a large variety of standard geometrical calculations (ie., bonds, angles, torsions, planes, inter-molecular contacts (H-Bond analysis), Coordination etc), tests (i.e. MISSYM, VOIDS etc.), utilities (cell transformation, SHELXL input etc.), graphics (e.g automatic labelled 'ORTEP-type plots), and several filters i.e. the DIFABS technique for empirical absorption correction (Walker & Stuart) and SQUEEZE for handling disordered solvents)..

Platon now also includes Pluton.
