We have endeavored to produce the easiest to use, most powerful program for drawing chemical structures, reactions, schematic diagrams, and designing other chemistry-related reports and presentations. Freeware Version From April 1999 onward, Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc., (ACD/Labs) has been making ACD/ChemSketch available as freeware, through the “Free Stuff” link at our Web site. Important ACD/ChemSketch freeware should be installed in its own separate folder. This folder can contain other ACD/Labs freeware concurrently available but it should not contain any purchased ACD/Labs software. All of the limitations on Freeware and also the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) can be found on our Web site at http://www.acdlabs.com/products/chem_dsn_lab/chemsketch/tech.html. Note Although ACD/ChemSketch freeware does not entitle you to technical support, we encourage you to visit the ChemSketch newsgroup at the address mentioned in the How to Contact Us section where you can post your questions or share tips. About This Tutorial Completion of this tutorial should give you the tools needed to get started with ACD/ChemSketch, it is designed for either online use or to be printed and used as a “hard copy” version. The screen shots shown throughout this tutorial have been taken with a relatively small window size. The colors and other properties of the window elements described throughout this tutorial correspond to the Windows Classic Theme (with dismissed gradients) of the operating system’s Display Properties. This tutorial is provided in electronic form, readable with Adobe software. If you cannot locate an index topic you need please do a text string search for the relevant word or phrase, or related words. ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial v Before You Begin Advanced Understanding This tutorial is intended to be a part of the technical documentation for ACD/Labs software. To study ACD/Labs products gradually, we recommend the following order of working through the technical documentation (the corresponding documents are located in the ACD/Labs documentation folder, \\DOCS): 1. Reference manual (CHEMSK_R.PDF) and tutorial (the current document) for ACD/ChemSketch 2. User’s Guides for ACD/Dictionary (DICT.PDF) and ACD/3D Viewer (3D.PDF) that familiarizes you with features of drawing and looking up structures. In addition, it is advisable to have knowledge of the following ACD/Labs products (the corresponding documents are located in the ACD/Labs documentation folder, \\DOCS): 1. ACD/I-Lab (ILAB.PDF)—the Internet-based service that allows you to get instant access to chemical databases and property predictions programs (can be downloaded from http://www.acdlabs.com for free). 2. ACD/ChemBasic (CHEMBAS.PDF)—the special programming language that enables the user to customize ACD/Labs software (can be downloaded from http://www.acdlabs.com for free). 3. ACD/Name to Structure (NAMESTR.PDF)—generates a molecular structure for almost any chemical name. ACD/Name to Structure processes the majority of the names of general organic compounds and many natural product derivatives according to IUPAC Recommendations on Organic, Biochemical, and Inorganic Nomenclature (should be purchased in addition to ACD/ChemSketch). Mouse Conventions You may perform several actions during your work with this software; the following specific words are used to describe them: • Point to means move the mouse pointer to an item. • Click means point to an item, and press the left mouse button. • Right-click means point to an item, and press the right mouse button. • Double-click means point to an item, and quickly press the left mouse button twice. • Drag means point to an item, and press and hold down the left mouse button while you move the item. • Select means highlight or make an interface element active either by clicking it or dragging over it (other actions are possible if specified in documentation).
