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, predict NMR spectra from ChemDraw structures, obtain structures from chemical names, assign names from structures, create multi-page documents, posters and more!
After drawing your structure, you can also use the convenient SciFinder icon to open a web browser launch a search for your structure/reaction in SciFinder.

Every year in the fall you will need to renew your ChemDraw Subscription.
We have renewed our site licence to ChemDraw so you can now either reactivate version 16 or download version 17! Version 15 still works too but if you are using 14 you need to upgrade. Versions 15 and 16 follow the old procedure for reactivating.
