Installing ChemDraw

“ChemBioDraw is the drawing tool of choice for chemists and biologists to create publication-ready, scientifically intelligent drawings for use in ELNs, databases and publications and for querying chemical databases, now including SciFinder.” –cambridgesoft.com

The chemistry department licenses ChemDraw for the all faculty, staff, and students at Washington State University. This is an annual license. Each fall, you must install a new serial number. If you are faculty, staff, or a graduate student in the chemistry department, Fulmer IT will provide a serial number. If you are a full-time employee or a student at the University but not in the chemistry department, you must get your annual serial number directly from CambridgeSoft.
