ACD/ChemSketch is a powerful application that intends to help you draw chemical structures and diagrams with minimum effort. It can be used by teachers, students or by professionals that need to use chemical schematics for reports and presentations.
Use library items or create complex chemical structures
The program allows you to create complex schematics from a blank page or to use the template library to add new items. It includes a large number of chemical compounds such as alkaloids or carbohydrates and allows you to add new substances.
View schematics in 2D or 3D
The chemical diagrams can be rendered in 3D in order to examine them from different angles. Both 2D and 3D schematics can be saved as image files in order to use them in other documents such as presentations.
Powerful calculator for accurate results
It includes an advanced calculator that can quickly provide you with the molecular formula or the composition for the current chemical structure. The professionals can use it to instantly calculate the molar volume or the monoisotopic mass for a certain substance.
Large database of documentation material
If you need more information about a certain chemical element, the program includes a detailed periodic table. Besides the information about the atomic radius and the melting point, it also displays general data about the name's origin and the discoverer.
Suitable for chemistry enthusiasts
The program's interface is easy to use but it requires some chemistry knowledge in order to understand some of the symbols. You can use the extended help file in order to fully understand the more advanced operations.
Extended content with add-ons
The advanced users can appreciate the online ILab support that is built in the program's interface and the add-on support that allows them to add new functions. The program also includes an RSS reader that displays the most recent titles as a ticker on the bottom of the main window.
Overall, ACD/ChemSketch is a reliable application that can help you create chemical diagrams complete with description and data tables for any report or presentation. It lets anyone easily accommodate even though it's especially helpful for those who find chemistry a pleasant topic.
