ChemSketch integrates Chmoogle

ACD (Advanced Chemistry Development) just announced the integration of Chmoogle and PubChem into the free and commercial versions of ChemSketch.

That means that from the molecule editing page in ChemSketch you are just a few clicks away from commercial sources, toxicology data, lists of similar molecules, etc.

This will do for chemistry what calculators did for math. It is the combination of several integrated and invisible technologies that allow for the leveraging of minimal chemical knowledge. You still have to know what you are doing but this dramatically reduces the amount of detail needed to be mastered.

This will change how I teach organic chemistry.


  • Very nice find JC. I'm going to talk about this in my next lecture for Chem Info Retrieval- I agree, this will change how chemistry is done.
