ChemDraw

ChemDraw lets you locate properties information for structures and create publication-quality structural diagrams/models. 

  • To download ChemDraw, you'll need to create a personal account using the PerkinElmer "User Registration" form. (If that form doesn't work for you, either try in a different browser, or start at the Cambridgesoft Site License page and locate the download links for NYU.)
  • After you've created the account, you'll receive an email letting you verify your NYU email address. Then, you can log in, and you should see a tiny link in the middle of the page that will let you download ChemDraw 19.0. To get the activation code for your software, go to the Order History section of your account (on the left), then click on the first order number in the list.
  • If you do not receive an email after you create the account, log in to the PerkinElmer account that you've just created. You'll see a tiny link in the middle of the page that will let you download the ChemDraw 19.0. To get the activation code for your software, go to the Order History section of your account (on the left), then click on the first order number in the list.
  • Please contact Cambridgesoft/PerkinElmer directly at 1-781-663-5740 with any questions or problems downloading ChemDraw.
