Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

ChemDoodle 8 released


The increasingly popular chemical drawing package ChemDoodle has been updated, this is a major update to an already excellent application. There also looks to be offers at the moment so this is a great time to purchase.

What is new in ChemDoodle 8

  • The graphics system has been improved even beyond current industry standards for graphics. Every bond merge and pixel was scrutinized. Chemical structures have never looked better. ChemDoodle provides the best graphics in chemistry, everything else is a waste of money.
  • Major IUPAC naming improvements, including very advanced ring systems.
  • Full support for Retina display Macs and support for high-DPI Windows hardware.
  • A new query structure system for defining sets of molecules and for searching partner services.
  • New powerful tools for drawing arbitrary rings and crown ethers to atoms and bonds.
  • Superscript and subscript merging to easily create atomic notations and other chemical text.
  • More specific cleaning tool for adjusting only a selection of a structure.
  • Text output options and improvements for EPS and SVG files in addition to PDF.
  • A dramatically improved Templates widget with new and more aesthetic templates.
  • Read in NTUPLES (multiple spectra) from JCAMP files.
  • Added support for both the SketchEl (el) and Crystallographic Information Format (cif) filetypes.
  • More support for working with the ChemDoodle Web Components.
  • Dozens of new BioArt graphics.
  • Performance improvements for faster work.
  • Dozens more new features: two new bond types, implicit hydrogen control, automatic IUPAC locant labelling, vastly improved condensed labels, search files based on query structures, recursive SMARTS, metric support for document aids and rulers, a new precise form for scaling a specific bond, many interface improvements and so much more.
