Just a reminder that UC San Diego faculty, staff and students have access to ChemBioDraw (aka ChemDraw). This is a campus-wide license, funded by a joint contribution from ACMS and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
The Windows version includes ChemBioDraw as part of the larger ChemBioOffice Ultra suite (complete list of programs here). ChemBioDraw is available for Mac users. PerkinElmer offers a rich collection of training webinars, shorter video clips, and support resources.
To get ChemBioOffice/ChemBioDraw:
- Register with PerkinElmer (formerly CambridgeSoft), using your ucsd.edu email address.
- Once ACMS confirms your status, they will email you the instructions to download and activate the software. Please contact ACMS (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions. Note: the Library does not manage the registrations or downloads.
Additional software and apps:
- MestReNova LITE is included in the ChemBioOffice package. However, it requires its own license activation (form and instructions). Once MNova verifies your license details (about 3 working days), they will email you the necessary license file.
- In 2013 PerkinElmer introduced iPad apps for ChemDraw ($10) and Chem3D (free).
