ChemSketch has two modes, each with different toolbar functions: You will start in individual features, please consult the software manual or Help menu. ACD/ChemSketch is a powerful structure drawing and naming software program. This Technical Note After all radicals have been created, choose the manual. Introduction to ChemSketch. ChemSketch is a free download for educational use. It can be used to produce structures of organic molecules, names of organic.

The hcemsketch can be read by both humans and computers — computers cannot typically read the two- and three-dimensional structures generated by chemists. Then select the correct number of atoms in the molecule length – 2; bond angle – 3; torsion angle – 4.

Clicking this button opens 3D Viewer, and copies the current structure to that module.

Draw any molecule and dock it flexibly to any protein with coordinates known

For these File menu commands, the file type choices are available in the usual dialog box that comes up for choosing file name and type. The C will change to an O, and the number of hydrogens will adjust appropriately. For the most part, the basics — and the features discussed on this page — have remained about the same during my experience with ChemSketch.

Name the new compound; it is now, properly, named as Z. So, the mere fact that you are in the 3D module does not mean that you have a proper 3D structure.


The free program IrfanView contains a good screen capture feature. To add a second benzene ring to your structure, position the pointer over any specific atom of the first ring, and single click. To fuse two rings, position the pointer over a bond in one ring, and single click.

Note that this step is the same whichever method you use for getting a 3D view. To rotate the molecule, hold down the left mouse button and drag the molecule around the x, y, and z axes.

That is, the functions of Export are now duplicated in Save As. In earlier versions of ChemSketch, the Open command was for the ChemSketch file format, and Import was used for other file formats. Now, put the pointer on one of the C-C bonds in the propane structure.

Open whatever you want whenever you want. ChemSketch is not only a molecular drawing program, it is also a molecular visualization program. If you do not see the buttons described here, see the paragraphs immediately above. A good procedure for visualizing a molecule in 3D while preserving your drawing in the sketch pad is to first draw the molecule in Structure mode, then press the [ Copy cbemsketch 3D ] button.

You will know when the pointer is properly positioned because a faint box will appear around the C atom along with its hydrogens. A new box opens, called Edit Label. This feature will result in less jagged lines on the screen output.


There are two ways to do this; these are described in the following two sections. Fig 9, below, shows an example.

You will now be returned to the main screen. That is ok; just go open it now.


Give the file a name of your choice, and click Ok to save it. The two most commonly used tabs are “Common” and “Atom”. In the Section 3D structures, for RasMol we made use mmanual the ability of ChemSketch to save export a file in another file format.

The symbols D and T, for the hydrogen isotopes, are available from the regular periodic table near its lower right. Replacing an H with a Cl switches the ranking at this position relative to the methyl group.

Can you Link the ChemSketch object? Be sure you have done the 3D optimization before copying to 3D. You can view and manipulate the 3-dimensional structure, chemsketcb the 3D module.

Use the “atom chemical properties” button. Click on the atom you want to change or anywhere on the drawing screen. Click on it, and then click on the O of interest.
