software for chemistry

IsisDraw does much of what the basic package of ChemDraw does (at least in terms of drawing chemical structures).

Although I MUCH prefer ChemDraw, IsisDraw is available free to academics and personal users.

I used to use it and know several academic-types that still do.

NOTE: I think that they require free registration now.

 

And there are some IisisDraw add ons that are supposed to make it do more of what the Pro version of ChemDraw can do.

NOTE: I have not used these, nor can I recommend them, nor do I know if they are also free.

I placed this part here purely for informational purposes.

* ACD/CNMR Predictor or ACD/CNMR DB

Theres this one called crystal maker for making crystal structure/lattices of inorgnaic compounds. Here's the link;

Also for physical chemistry you can always use Microsoft excel for doing your calculation and plotting graphs etc. Originlab is a better software for plotting graphs and things like that.

Personally, I'd rather kill myself than use Excel, but I do agree that it is easy to use. :D

If you have to make more than 1 graph though, I recommend Octave and Matlab... It will take a bit of time to learn... but in the end it is worth it. Octave is the GNU GPL (GNU general public licence) version of Matlab. It is free to download for Windows and Linux (yes, both).

 

Octave and Matlab use the same programming language to make the scripts (.m files). You have to write a script, which you then run, and you get a result after that.

They are, imho, more flexible, and will generate nicer plots as well.

 

And scripts are really very easy:

 

if you want to calculate some simple formula, you just type in your .m file (which you can write using notepad or some text editor)

A = 10

B = 20

C = A*B

 

If you run that, it will give the result of C (and also tell you A and B). It starts this simple, and it can get as complicated as you like.
