An XYZ file is a simple and widely-used plain text file format for representing three-dimensional molecular structures. It typically contains atomic coordinates of individual atoms in space, specifying their positions in the X, Y, and Z Cartesian coordinates. Each line in the XYZ file represents an atom and contains its atomic symbol, followed by its X, Y, and Z coordinates, separated by spaces or tabs. This format is particularly popular in chemistry and materials science as it allows for easy exchange of molecular data between different software tools and platforms.

The XYZ file format is straightforward, making it easy to read and write by both humans and computers. Since it doesn't require complex formatting or proprietary specifications, it has become a standard representation for molecular structures in various computational chemistry programs and visualization tools. Additionally, XYZ files can store additional information, such as atomic charges or connectivity, in optional comment lines. These comment lines, denoted by a leading hash (#), provide flexibility in including extra details about the molecular system being represented.

With its simplicity and versatility, the XYZ file format is an essential resource in various fields, including molecular modeling, drug discovery, and materials research. Researchers can utilize it to describe and exchange structural data, simulate molecular behavior, and visualize complex systems. Due to its wide adoption and compatibility, the XYZ file format continues to be a fundamental tool in the analysis and communication of three-dimensional molecular structures.
