ChemOffice and ChemDraw version 17.0 released

September 15, 2017

PerkinElmer Informatics is pleased to announce the release of the new enhanced ChemDraw/ChemOffice 17 product offering, providing chemists and biologists with a unique and powerful collection of scientifically intelligent personal productivity tools. ChemDraw/ChemOffice 17 contains all the same rich and chemically aware features and functionality that ChemDraw is known for as well as the following new capabilities:

  • · Enhanced Hotkeys: The existing Hotkeys in ChemDraw have been extended and made more accessible. Now chemists can quickly type complex molecules and reactions with minimal keys strokes and without using a mouse. A visual indicator helps guide the user to the active part of the molecule.
  • · HELM and extended biopolymers: ChemDraw now supports HELM for importing and exporting complex biopolymers. Users can paste in HELM strings, edit or create new biopolymers using the HELM monomer toolbar, create custom monomers using the HELM editor and copy their biopolymers as HELM to share with other applications.
  • · High Definition Monitor support.
  • · Document tagging
  • · MNova ChemDraw Edition is included with ChemOffice Professional to load and process 1D NMR and LC/GC/MS data directly on your desktop
  • · Many bug fixes
  • · New Platform Support
