Chemists communicate with one another about molecules by using chemical structures. ChemDraw is a application that allows you to draw these structures on your computer and to copy-and-paste them into other documents. ChemDraw can also analyze your structures and provide you physical data, such a molecular weights and predicted boiling points, melting points and solubilities.
UW-Eau Claire has a site license to ChemDraw Prime, so any student or faculty member may download a free copy of the application and install it on their personal computer (Mac or Windows).
