The integration will allow users of ChemDraw and ISIS Draw to access, through a familiar structure drawing interface, the full range of online and intranet services, including systematic naming generation, and ACD/Labs' latest version 8.0 NMR and physicochemical property prediction algorithms and databases.
In version 8.0, both the 1H and 13C databases were expanded to include an additional 10,000 entries, resulting in over 165,000 organic structures with reference information and assigned chemical shifts for each of the HNMR and CNMR Predictors. Considerable additions were also made to the 15N, 19F, and 31P NMR databases, as well as the pKa, LogP, and Solubility PhysChem databases.
The ACD/Labs Intranet and Internet platforms accessed through ChemDraw and ISIS will facilitate access to the chemical databases and property prediction services via the internet using ACD/Labs Online, or from behind a firewall on a corporate server using ACD/Labs Predictors for Intranets. ACD/Labs Online provides access to services on a pay-per-transaction or subscription basis.
ACD/Labs Predictors for Intranets will provide users of ChemDraw and ISIS with the additional capability of training their predictions with user training databases created in-house.
Ph.D., V.P. Scientific Development and Marketing at ACD/Labs, comments, "ACD/Labs'
predictors and databases are now the industry standard technologies for NMR
and PhysChem prediction, as well as systematic naming. While ACD/ChemSketch
has close to half of a million users, we understand that many organizations
use ChemDraw and ISIS Draw. Integrating ACD/Labs Online and Predictors for Intranets
to these drawing packages enables users to experience ACD/Labs capabilities
through their favorite drawing package."
ACD/Labs Online is publicly available at http://www.acdlabs.com/ilab. Both ACD/Labs Online and ACD/Labs Predictors for Intranets are also accessible via ACD/Labs' own renowned chemical drawing and graphics package, ACD/ChemSketch, or via the ACD/Structure Drawing Applet.
