ACD/Name

Use Chemical Name to Generate Structures, and InChI and SMILES Strings

  • When compared with other naming software…the quality of names generated from ACD/Name is second-to-none. G. Eller, Molecules, 11:915–928, 2006
  • I find the ACD/ChemSketch software to be very intuitive. Furthermore, it appears to seamlessly integrate with other Microsoft Office programs, such as Word. Thomas J. Siepmann, Attorney; Birch, Stewart, Kolasch, & Birch, LLP
  • We use ChemSketch to draw structures to add detail to our publications and grant applications. ...the ability to illustrate [fine structural] differences really adds to them. Professor Jane Grande-Allen, Assistant Professor of Bioengineering, Rice University
  • We are satisfied with ACD/ChemSketch as it perfectly fits our enterprise environment, it is manageable, and provides an excellent chemical drawing suite for our users. Mr. Vince Szucs, IT Director, Gedeon Richter

ACD/Name generates chemical names according to IUPAC and CAS Index rules, converts names back to structures, and can easily handle challenging areas of nomenclature, such as biological molecules, organometallics, and polymers. Derivative rule reports and links back to the relevant nomenclature recommendations permit a greater insight and understanding of the nomenclature process and the name generated.
