ChemDraw Banner

The complete entry-level structure drawing program, with all the tools you need to quickly create chemically intelligent, publication-ready chemical structures and reactions, laboratory notes and experiment write-ups. Beyond a full set of chemical structure essentials (e.g. rings, bonds, chains, atoms and functional groups), ChemDraw Prime includes new hotkeys for drawing even faster than ever before, property calculators, chemical and lab equipment templates and handy TLC Plate drawing tools.

What’s New

Enhanced Hotkeys: Building off of the powerful hotkeys already enabled within the application, we have enhanced this capability so now you can truly create molecules and reactions as fast as you can type. Facilitated Chemical Structure Pasting: ChemDraw now supports a simpler pasting of CDXML and other text formats like SMILES, Mol, InChi, and HELM as a structure using the Edit>Paste (Ctrl+V) menu option, with plain text in the clipboard. You can also copy/paste to and from ChemDraw JS, ChemDraw and MS Office embedded ChemDraw documents without loss of chemical information (requires browser-specific clipboard extension, Windows only).
