CambridgeSoft‘s ChemOffice Professional is currently the world’s top-class desktop chemical software suite. It integrates 20+ powerful and professional chemistry related applications in one place, and provides you with an excellent, complete chemical assistant system, which enables your research work to reach a new level.

ChemOffice Professional consists of a series of relatively independent tools, primarily including ChemDraw (chemical structure drawing), Chem3D (molecular model and simulation), ChemFinder (chemical information searching & integrating system). With them, we can directly convert the name of some compound into 3D structure chart, so as to save trouble on drawing it out; Conversely, it can give the correct name of some compound with known structure, etc. Moreover, ChemOffice Professional also comes with a full set of ChemInfo database, ChemACX, ChemACX-SC, Merck indexes, ChemMSDX, and so on.

At first, ChemOffice Professional was only designed and developed for scientific researchers’ personal use in the fields of chemical or biological research. But now, it supports sharing of solutions, which can bring many benefits to all scientific and technical workers in many research institutions.

// About ChemDraw Professional //

ChemDraw Professional is currently the best and most popular chemical structure drawing tool in the world. Meanwhile, it is also one of 3 most important members in CambridgeSoft’s ChemOffice series of software, the other two are Chem 3D (molecular structure model) and ChemFinder (chemical information database).

ChemDraw Professional provides a complete and easy-to-use set of solutions for chemical drawings. This includes compound formula, chemical reaction equation, chemical flow chart, plane figure commonly used in chemical fields such as simple experiment device. In short, with ChemDraw Professional, you can easily, quickly draw and edit all figures related to chemistry. And because it came with a lot of international authoritative journals, in recent years, it has become the standard of drawing chemical charts for publications, articles, reports in chemical industry, CAI software and some other related areas.

In brief, ChemDraw Professional is an extremely helpful must-have tool for any chemical industry practitioners, especially for chemical workers who are involved in chemical structures.
