What’s New in ChemDraw®18

Here’s what’s new in ChemDraw 18

  • ChemDraw/Reaxys Integration: PerkinElmer and Elsevier® established a partnership to provide you with new and unique ways to improve your Research productivity. It is now possible to draw a molecule or a reaction in ChemDraw,and initiate a structure search into Reaxys. But that’s not all! As part of this partnership, you can also choose to use ChemDraw JS as a drawing editor when you use the online Reaxys website. *requires a Reaxys license* (ChemDraw Professional and above)
  • ChemACX Explorer: Thanks to the new add-in architecture in ChemDraw, you can now explore chemical properties or supplier information for a given molecule by looking up and retrieving information directly from ChemACX.com, PerkinElmer’s database of over 10M commercially available compounds, and quickly paste structures back into the canvas. This feature is also available through Signals Notebook Individual Edition. (ChemDraw Professional and above)
  • Shared libraries of monomers: If you are into HELM notation (for peptides, nucleic acids, ADCs etc.) now you can connect to different libraries of monomers, and manage and curate the content of those libraries. One of the default libraries available (“PerkinElmer”) is the public library from monomer.org. (ChemOffice Professional)
  • A unique installer: we have been taking active steps to simplify the activation process of ChemDraw and ChemOffice. One of them is to simplify the number of installers available, therefore no matter which level of ChemDraw you are using, you will download only one installer for ChemDraw Prime, ChemDraw Professional, and ChemOffice Professional. Your license key will determine which applications get installed
Features to try from Release 17.1:
  • Smart Copy/Pasting: You can now paste text-based chemical structure formats like SMILES, Mol, InChI, and HELM as a structure directly using the Edit>Paste (Ctrl/Cmd+V) command, with plain text in the clipboard (Activate the text tool if you need to paste it as text) (ChemDraw Prime and above)
  • IUPAC name-based Atom numbering: Calling the Name-to-Structure or Structure-to-Name function now displays the atom number as they are labeled in the IUPAC name. This feature can be turned on or off in the Preferences. (ChemDraw Professional and above)
  • ChemACX Structure from CAS Registry Number: A new function has been added to look up a CAS RN through ChemACX.com, PerkinElmer’s database of commercially available compounds (over 10M substances and 800k CAS RNs provided by vendors) and return the corresponding chemical structure. (ChemDraw Professional and above)
