ACD/ChemSketch Freeware is a drawing package that allows you to draw chemical structures 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. The freeware version of ChemSketch does not include all of the functionality of the commercial version—see a brief overview of the differences. Visit ACD/ChemSketch to learn more about the commercial version.
