SciNote Integration With ChemAxon’s Chemical Drawing Tool
3 min read
We are happy to announce that this release brings SciNote integration with a premium version of the chemical drawing tool by ChemAxon.
What does the ChemAxon integration offer you?
Simply put, the ChemAxon integration enables you to draw molecules directly from the SciNote interface as you work on your experiments.
But we are not talking only about your regular benzenes, ammonia or kitchen salts. No, you can draw complex antibiotics, peptides, and even chemical reactions.
The tool, Marvin JS (licensed version), also recognizes common names for compounds and draws them for you. It has the ability to modify bonds, visualize different stereoisomers and make personalized shortcuts to optimize workflow and save time.
Drawing molecules has never been easier
You can access the chemical drawing option from any rich text editor field in SciNote, and even within the Results section of your tasks.
See it in action below:
1.) Click Create Chemical Drawing
While writing a protocol an icon named Create Chemical Drawing will be located in the top right corner of your rich text editor, next to the buttons for adding pictures and inserting code samples.
2.) Draw Your Chemical Structure
A new window will appear with all the functionalities this chemical drawing tool has to offer. Here you can draw your chemical structures and chemical reactions. When you are done, simply click Save and Close.
3.) And that’s it! Easy and quick!
The image will be inserted directly into the text field in SciNote. You can then resize, edit or download the image.
No worries – after further editing of the image in SciNote, all changes will be automatically updated.
