What’s New

ChemDraw version 19.1 gives precious time back to researchers, providing them with new ways to make their research stand out in a globally competitive environment.

New hotkeys and shortcuts! The user-favored features just keep on getting better: Cyclopropyl and cyclobutyl groups are available as atom hotkeys, and a new rotation shortcut is available to quickly adjust molecules. Recent hotkey additions include “Fmoc”, “Boc”, “Cbz”, “MgBr”, “N3” or “COOH” and “NO2” which are now conveniently available in one single key press.

Multiple improvements have been brought to the application, related to overall performance and display of toolbars and menus on very high-resolution monitors.

New coloring options! As the market-leading tool for the communication of Chemistry, ChemDraw now offers the unique possibility to add color inside any carbon cycle, thus enabling clearer communication of ideas and concepts by directing the focus of a reader or an audience to a given part of a chemical structure.

Large chemical library enumeration: ChemDraw 19.1 removes the previously existing upper limit to the number of structures generated from a generic structure enumeration. It is now possible to enumerate directly to an SD File, without a limit to the number of molecules contained therein.

SciFindern users are now able to initiate a search in the latest version of SciFindern directly from the canvas in ChemDraw. A proxy option is available for organizations that have their own instance of SciFindern.

New brackets are now available to better serve polymer chemists, allowing them to define Average Molecular Weight values for a chemical structure between brackets for easier stoichiometry calculations.

White Paper

Digital Transformation Journeys for Materials Science

Recent times have demonstrated the need for digital transformation, often in harsh terms, including a loss of R&D productivity. As a result, R&D organizations in advanced chemical manufacturing must find ways to improve efficiency in an increasingly challenging environment. This white paper provides guidance on which technologies yield improved turnaround times, smarter questions, and faster answers.

Shared Principles Among Materials Scientists and Medicinal Chemists

At first glance, it would seem that the work that goes on at R&D labs in applied materials companies has little commonality with the processes used in the pharmaceutical industry to discover new therapeutic drugs. On closer examination, the principles are very similar. Examine the similarities to understand methods for improving your workflow.
