ChemDraw® for iPad®

Honorable Mention: The Scientist Top Ten Innovations 2013

ChemDraw® for iPad® provides all the tools scientists need to capture and share chemical inspiration and innovation whenever they want and wherever they are. A new scaffold, a new synthetic pathway, an interesting tweak to a promising lead compound – researchers can quickly sketch them with ChemDraw® for iPad® as ideas take shape and share them with colleagues and save them for later elaboration and processing. Educators and students can also use ChemDraw® for iPad® to quickly pose and answer chemical questions and assignments.

With simple touch gestures scientists can use ChemDraw® for iPad® to quickly create, edit and share publication-quality chemical structures and reactions, while leveraging 25 years of proven chemical intelligence and attention to detail in ChemDraw desktop software

ChemDraw® for iPad® Features revolutionary Flick-to-Share™ technology so that researchers, students and teachers can immediately "flick" chemical drawings to other app users within their network and receive modified structures back; no multi-step emailing or cloud storage services required.
