ACD/ChemSketch

A Complete Software Package for Drawing Chemical Structures

ACD/ChemSketch is a chemically intelligent drawing interface that allows you to draw chemical and simple biological structures including organics, organometallics, polymers, polysaccharides, nucleotides, and Markush structures. Produce professional figures and diagrams for reports and publications.

  • Draw structures, reactions, and schema (e.g., biotransformation maps)
  • Generate IUPAC systematic names for molecules of up to 50 atoms and 3 ring structures
  • Predict molecular properties for individual structures (molecular weight, formula weight, density, logP, etc.)
  • Import and export structure files in a variety of standard file formats
  • Create professional reports, working with structures, text, and graphics

All prices in USD.
Windows version only (see Requirements tab below).
