    $\begingroup$ The drawings were made using BKChem under Linux. The program is in the repositories of all major Linux distributions, There also seem to be Windows and OSX ports at BKChem which I haven't tried. The program was initially written by Beda Kosata and is currently maintained by Reinis Danne. Sources are available from her repository on gitorious. $\endgroup$ – Klaus-Dieter Warzecha Apr 4 '15 at 7:42
