ACD/Labs Releases a New Version of ACD/ChemSketch Freeware

With more than a million users worldwide, ACD/Labs is releasing a new version of ChemSketch freeware. The software provides chemical drawing, naming, and physicochemical property prediction software for academic and personal use at no fee.


Toronto, Canada (November 8, 2013)—Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc., (ACD/Labs) announces the release of the latest version of our comprehensive freeware chemical drawing software — ACD/ChemSketch Freeware. With over 1.3 million downloads worldwide since its initial offering in 1998, ChemSketch Freeware remains one of the most popular chemical drawing packages available.

The latest version lets users quickly and easily draw all kinds of chemical structures including polymers, organometallics, and Markush structures, optimize spatial configuration, and view structures in 2D or 3D. Generate IUPAC and CAS Index nomenclature for molecules with fewer than 50 atoms and 3 ring structures, and get predictions of the octanol-water partition coefficient, logP, along with other molecular descriptors. Access to ACD/I-Lab, our pay-per-use online engine for the prediction of physicochemical, ADME, and toxicity properties, NMR spectra and chemical shifts, and chemical names, is also provided.

The commercial version of ACD/ChemSketch offers the additional benefits of a structure dictionary of over 170,000 trivial and trade names and structures, expanded nomenclature capabilities, and structure-based search functionality for Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF reports, and other structure file formats. As the structure drawing component in all products on the ACD/Spectrus Platform, ChemSketch helps to capture the knowledge and intelligence generated in the included software modules. It can also be used to exchange data with web-based databases such as PubChem, eMolecules, and ChemSpider.

ACD/ChemSketch Freeware is available for home and educational use, and academic institutions can take advantage of our Academic Site Licensing program to deploy the software across their campus. To learn more about ACD/ChemSketch or to download the latest freeware, visit
