ChemDraw installation and renewal

A how-to guide on installing the latest version of ChemDraw and how to renew each year in November.

ChemDraw Professional

ChemDraw Professional includes the following applications:

  • ChemDraw Professional is used by hundreds of thousands of scientists around the world to quickly and effectively draw molecules, reactions and biological entities and pathways for use in documents and electronic lab notebooks; to search databases, now including SciFinder; and to generate accurate names from structures and to predict properties and spectra.
  • ChemDraw for Excel adds chemical intelligence to Excel spreadsheets so that chemists can use Excel’s analysis, sorting and organization tools to further manipulate and enrich sets of compounds and data and explore structure-activity relationships.
  • ChemFinder Std is a chemically-intelligent personal database system that scientists use to organize their compounds and to search for and correlate structures with properties.
