ChemDraw at SCS

ChemDraw is a chemical structure drawing software package designed to help both the beginning chemistry student and the expert researcher. The SCS Computer Center provides a graduate school license for ChemDraw. Our license allows us to distribute the software to graduate students, faculty, and staff of the School of Chemical Sciences of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Graduate students and staff who wish to install the software package on a personal computer will download it by following the instructions below.

  1. Go to the UI WebStore
  2. If you are faculty or staff, log in to "Shop Unit Purchases", if you are an undergrad, log in to "Personal Purchases".
  3. Search for "ChemDraw"
  4. Follow the directions from the WebStore.
  5. You can install copies of the software on your own computers using the same serial number. However, CambridgeSoft sets an initial limit on the number of activations to three. If you need to install more than three copies of the software on various machines, please send an email to informatics [dot] customer_service [at] perkinelmer [dot] com to request additional activations. The software is network aware; two copies installed with the same serial number will not work at the same time if the computers are connected to a network.
