eMolecules Applescript

I suspect that everyone has their own preferred online chemical supplier, I use eMolecules much of the time. However I'd prefer not to have to learn a new chemical drawing package for every online database. Fortunately most of the sites will accept a SMILES string as the query and most of the desktop drawing packages can generate a SMILES string.
This Applescript uses ChemBioDraw (aka ChemDraw) to generate the SMILES string of the selected structure,and then encodes and constructs the URL to run a search of eMolecules.
