Using web technology, the development and application of the platform of molecular point group system PGLite have been described in this paper. A friendly interface for directly accessing webpages to manipulate molecular models has been implemented, and a molecular point group display platform for structural chemistry courses has been constructed to help students better understand the molecular symmetry, which effectively improve the teaching effect of molecular point groups section.

Key words: Structural chemistry, Molecular symmetry, Network programming, JSmol, PGLite
