ChemDraw is a downloadable application for drawing chemical structures for use in database queries, the preparation of graphics for lab reports and journal articles, providing electronic descriptions of molecules and reactions, and features advanced prediction tools. 

Create tables of structures, identify and label stereochemistry, estimate NMR spectra from ChemDraw structures, obtain structures from chemical names, assign names from structures, and create multi-page documents and posters. 

ChemDraw Professional includes 1H and 13C NMR predictions, Name-to-Structure and Structure-to-Name functions, and integrations to Reaxys, and SciFinder-n, for quick and seamless access to important scientific literature databases. Peptide and nucleic acid chemists can also take advantage of the HELM Toolbar to easily represent biomolecules.
