PerkinElmer Informatics has announced version 21 of its ChemDraw software, which provides researchers with the ability to import, animate and share 3D chemical structures natively in the Microsoft PowerPoint application.
The key enhancement helps chemists create more intelligent research reports quickly and easily, improving information sharing and collaboration and supporting real-time decision making.
Using the new software, chemists paste a live 3D rendering of their molecule, with its atom and bond colour highlights fully retained, natively into the Microsoft PowerPoint application where they can view, rotate and share the image. Researchers can also save molecules as 3D printable objects. According to PerkinElmer, no other chemical drawing application in the industry provides these capabilities which eliminate the need to use specialised software with steep learning curves.
“ChemDraw software and the ChemOffice+ Cloud platform are all about simplifying, facilitating, and accelerating chemistry communication to transform drawings into shareable knowledge,” said Kevin Willoe, VP and GM of PerkinElmer Informatics. “With this latest ChemDraw software release, chemists working on new drugs or materials can go from a 2D to 3D world more efficiently and help drive fluid collaboration and data-rich, timely decision making.”
