An application that can help you create chemical structures.

ChemDoodle is a fully functional chemical drawing application that works on every operating system! In addition to being multiplatform, ChemDoodle also natively reads and writes many common file formats including ChemDraw's CDX and CDXML.

You can write ChemDraw files for submitting journal manuscripts or share these files with your rich friends who purchased ChemDraw. No longer do you need to worry if your colleages are using compatible applications or operating systems.

One of the great things about ChemDoodle is that it's not just a program for creating chemical structures or molecule drawings. It is a 2D chemical environment where anything chemistry can be incorporated. ChemDoodle's widgets are a great example of this freedom. These mini-applications perform various unique tasks such as interfacing with databases, generating and interpreting SMILES strings, and simulating multiplets.

The output from these widgets can be easily dragged right onto your document. We are always looking to add more widgets, so you may be pleasantly surprised after updating ChemDoodle, to see a new widget that appears for you to play with!

In addition to ChemDoodle's own format (ICL) and chemical document settings format (CDS), ChemDoodle can flawlessly read and write ChemDraw's CDX and CDXML, MDL MOLFiles and SDFiles, and chemical markup language (CML). If journal's do not accept ChemDoodle's ICL format or any of the vector image formats provided, just save your document as a ChemDraw file and submit that as well.

All mutually inclusive objects, including shapes and images, can be saved with almost all properties preserved. This story at iChemLabs describes the reading and writing of ChemDraw files in more detail. You may also want to use structures created in ChemDoodle with other chemical applications.

ChemDoodle fully supports MDL's formats, which have become the standard chemical file formats, and almost every chemical application will be able to load them. A wide range of native formats allows for ease in using ChemDoodle for any task.

What's New in This Release:

Additions:
- Atom label text formatting. ChemDoodle’s default atom label formatting, based on chemical interpretation, can now be overriden. You now have full control to completely format all aspects of the atom label text, from styling, to color and alignment. While very complex labels can now be drawn, this is mainly to allow access to italics and superscripts so common labels can now be easily drawn, such as "iPr”, "iPr” and "R10” for example.

- Rendered bond merging for aesthetic bond joins. Wedge-Single, Wedge-Wedge, Wedge-Bold, and Bold-Bold bonds now neatly fit together.

New molecular descriptors are calculated:
- Degree of Unsaturation
- Rotatable Bond Count
- Branching Index
- Chi Molecular Connectivity Indices – Up to third order for both simple and valence models.
- Kappa Shape Indices – Up to third order for both simple and alpha models.
- Critical Pressure
- Critical Temperature
- Critical Volume
- Enthalpy of Formation (ideal gas at 298K)
- Enthalpy of Fusion
- Enthalpy of Vaporization (at Tb)
