Using ACD/ChemSketch as a teaching tool, specifically for the topic of hydrocarbons in chemistry courses, was shown to increase student motivation to learn in this article.

The purpose of this research was to analyze student motivation in the learning process by using ACD/ChemSketch. Research was conducted in SMAN 2 Merauke in Papua, with 28 students in Grade X IPA 2. The data in this research was collected using a checklist questionnaire given to the students after they completed learning the hyrdocarbon subject area with the use of ChemSketch. Based on data analysis, the results were 11 students (39.28%) categorized the learning process as having "very high motivation"; 16 students (57.14%) having "high motivation"; and 1 student (3.5%) having "medium motivation". From the results, we concluded that the use of ChemSketch is able to motivate students to learn chemistry, especially the hydrocarbon topic, and that teachers can use this software as an alternative media for teaching.
