ChemDoodle Chemical Drawing Software is designed to help you draw simple molecules, as well as create complex chemistry documents that can be used in either projects or publications.
Whether you’re a chemistry teacher, full-time chemist or just into chemistry, at one point you’ve certainly looked for a way of putting your thoughts and ideas on a digital piece of paper.
From the first time, you run ChemDoodle and you get the feeling that this is a piece of software to which a great deal of attention has been given in terms of intuitive use, practicality, efficient workflow and an abundance of tools.
ChemDoodle Chemical Drawing Software displays a user-friendly interface that can be freely manipulated. All its toolbars and widgets can be reorganized and manipulated any way you see fit so you can create the perfect working space. Besides the doodle board on which you do all the drawing, the application offers you a series of tools for files and formatting, strokes, labels, rings, bonds arrows, orbitals and shapes along with anything else that is required to create exactly what you need.
