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
  • Generate names from molecular structure* and vice versa
  • Calculate molecular properties from chemical structure
  • Create professional reports, presentations, and publication-ready figures

* ChemSketch can generate names for molecules of up to 50 atoms. For larger molecules, Name (Chemist Version) is available to purchase.
