ChemDraw is a molecule editor first developed in 1985 by David A. Evans and Stewart Rubenstein[1] (later by thecheminformatics company CambridgeSoft). The company was sold to PerkinElmer in the year 2011.[2] ChemDraw, along with Chem3D and ChemFinder, is part of the ChemOffice suite of programs and is available for Macintosh andMicrosoft Windows. A simplified, touch optimized version for the iPad was released in late 2013.
