Release Announcement - ChemOffice and ChemDraw version 19.0

October 28, 2019

PerkinElmer Informatics is pleased to announce the release of ChemDraw and ChemOffice version 19.0 giving more and more precious time back to chemists, and providing them with new ways to make their research stand out in a globally competitive environment as well as novel features to help chemists conduct research more safely.

New coloring options – ChemDraw now offers the unique possibility to add color inside any carbon cycle, thus enabling clearer communication of ideas and concepts by directing the focus of a reader or an audience to a given part of a chemical structure.

New hotkeys – Commonly used protecting or functional groups in Chemistry such as “Fmoc”, “Boc”, “Cbz”, “MgBr”, “N3” or “COOH” and “NO2” are now conveniently available in one single keystroke.

Enumeration to SD File – When enumerating generic structures to create chemical libraries, the previously existing upper limit of 500 structures has been removed through the possibility to enumerate a generic structure directly to an SD File without an upper limit for the number of structures generated.

PubChem Safety GHS Add-in: ChemOffice users can now select a chemical structure or a chemical name in ChemDraw and retrieve GHS information (pictograms, H and P phrases) coming from the PubChem Laboratory Chemical Safety Sheet (LCSS). H and P phrases from multiple regulatory agency sources can be conveniently copied to the clipboard.

New polymer brackets: It is now possible to define an Average Molecular Weight values for a chemical structure between brackets for easier stoichiometry calculations.

ChemDraw Add-ins now support integrations with applications and services that require token-based authentication.
