New Atom Hotkeys and new Molecule Hotkey

A new Molecule hotkey "Enter" is available to switch from a selected molecule to hotspot molecule editing. "k" now creates a sulfone group, "Shift+k" on primary carbon gives a tert-butyl group with 90° angles and on secondary carbons a wedged/hashed-wedged gem-dimethyl group. "Shift+o" creates a "OMe" group, and "Shift+e" a "CO2Me". Upon 1st launch of ChemDraw 20.0, a comprehensive hotkey cheat sheet will be presented to the user.

ChemDraw/® Reaxys® Integration

PerkinElmer and Elsevier have established a partnership to provide you with new and unique ways to improve your Research productivity. It is now possible to draw a molecule or a reaction in ChemDraw, and initiate a structure search into Reaxys. You can also choose to use ChemDraw JS as a drawing editor when you use the online Reaxys website. The access to Reaxys must be acquired additionally.

ChemACX Explorer 

Thanks to the new add-in architecture in ChemDraw, you can now explore chemical properties or supplier information for a given molecule by looking up and retrieving information directly from, PerkinElmer's database of over 10M commercially available compounds, and quickly paste structures back into the canvas. This feature is also available through Signals Notebook Individual Edition.

Shared libraries of monomers

If you are into HELM notation (for peptides, nucleic acids, ADCs etc.) you now have the possibility to connect to different libraries of monomers and manage and curate the content of those libraries. One of the default libraries available ("PerkinElmer") is the public library from

New in ChemOffice Professional 17

Hotkeys Enhancements

The hotkeys and reaction shortcut enhancements will improve your user experience with ChemDraw 17 by cutting down drastically the amount of time needed to draw complex molecules and reactions to a sequence of key strokes. It is also now possible to switch between the different tools without relying on timeconsuming back and forth movements with the mouse. With the new hotkey enhancements you will spend far less time on drawing your reactions and much more time focusing on your research!

  • Dramatically reduce the time needed to draw your molecules with smartly designed hotkeys.
  • Draw your molecules and reactions without having to rely on back and forth gestures with the mouse.
  • The new hotspot visualization system allows you to see the active atom or bond, which can be moved with keyboard arrows.
  • Switch between tools by simply pressing on designated keyboard keys.
  • New reaction shortcut allows you to draw a sequence of reactions in no time, extending automatically the length and width of the page as you draw.

Support for Hierarchical Editing Language for Macromolecules (HELM)

Today's chemists are eager to turn customized biopolymeric sequences into novel compounds – and ChemDraw 17 gives you the tools and the language to do it. ChemDraw now features support HELM notation, the Pistoia Alliance's emerging global standard for representing and sharing complex molecular types ranging from natural or unnatural peptide or nucleic acid sequences.

  • Import, draw, edit and export complex biomolecular structures, containing natural or custom and unnatural monomers by selecting from a comprehensive list of peptides, nucleic acids or chemical protecting groups or via HELM strings.
  • Paste a HELM text string into a fully chemically-interpreted HELM sequence that can be expanded and contracted as per your display needs.
  • Easily search for specific monomers using the HELM toolbar filtering capabilities, through type-ahead filtering and, of course, structure search.
  • Define and store your own custom monomers to be used into your HELM sequences.
