BIOVIA Draw enables scientists to draw and edit complex molecules, chemical reactions and biological sequences with ease, facilitating the collaborative searching, viewing, communicating, and archiving of scientific information.
JChem for Office integrates structure handling and visualizing capabilities within a Microsoft Office environment. The bundle includes JChem for Excel which is our long-standing Excel integration. With JChem for Office, chemistry is made live in your Office application and structures are fully supported within spreadsheets, documents, slides and e-mails. Implementation is robust with fast loading/scrolling of many thousands of structure rows and copy-paste throughout the Microsoft Office suite. More advanced functionality includes: structure based calculations, R-group decomposition and library enumeration.
ChemDraw is the industry standard software used by scientists worldwide to draw accurate, chemically-aware structures for use in database queries, preparation of publication-quality graphics, and entry for modeling and other programs that require an electronic description of molecules and reactions. ChemDraw is the fastest, most accurate way to prepare chemical structures, with the highest-quality structure display both on-screen and for publication, and the most advanced and chemically intelligent drawing conventions. ChemDraw is the gold standard for chemical drawing, publication, and query preparation.
The following are some of the features that complement the drawing capabilities:
ChemDraw ActiveX/Plugin Viewer allows you to query online databases and view & publish online structures. This installer will automatically install the necessary Plugin or ActiveX controls based on your web browser(s).
ChemDraw for iPad has all the rigorous chemical intelligence you’ve come to expect from the desktop version, plus all the convenience of a mobile app.
ACD/ChemSketch is a chemically intelligent drawing interface that allows you to draw almost any chemical structure including organics, organometallics, polymers, and Markush structures. It also includes features such as calculation of molecular properties (e.g., molecular weight, density, molar refractivity etc.), 2D and 3D structure cleaning and viewing, functionality for naming structures (fewer than 50 atoms and 3 rings), and prediction of logP.Use it to produce professional looking structures and diagrams for reports and publications.
PLT is a program for producing chemical drawings and outputting them in a variety of formats. It will run on all versions of Windows (95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, Win 7). PLT provides routines for producing all rings and line types used in chemical structures, formatted text material in any TrueType font installed on your system (including greek characters and special chemical characters like radical anion, radical cation, double dagger) and supports the use of color.
Chemitorium is Open-Source Molecule Editor and Viewer. Edit, compute, analyze and visualize chemical formulas. Formula Editor, 3D Rendering, Exporter, Video Module, Shaders, Antialiasing, Analysis Tools.
MCDL (Modular Chemical Descriptor Language) is a small Java molecular viewer/editor for chemical structures, stored in Modular Chemical Descriptor Language linear notation. The editor supports the MCDL format, in which structures are presented in compact canonical form and is capable of restoring bond orders as well as of managing atom and bond drawing overlap. A small database of cage and large cyclic fragment is used for optimal representation of difficult-to-draw molecules. The improved algorithm of the structure diagram generation can be used for other chemical notations that lack atomic coordinates (SMILES, InChI).

JMolDraw is a small Java-Applet for drawing organic structures on your computer. The applet also supports Im/Export of MDL-Molfiles, drawing of Query-Atoms for database search, templates and much more.
