Learn how to spend less time on drawing molecules and have more time for making them.

Location: HCI J7
Speaker: Dr. Pierre Morieux
, Chemistry Application Specialist at PerkinElmer
After gaining a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2010, Pierre went on to a 2-year postdoc at the ISIS, Université de Strasbourg, France. Pierre then published a ChemDraw Tips & Tricks video on YouTube, the success of which led to him being hired by PerkinElmer as an application specialist for chemistry.

Join us for a free ChemBioDraw workshop and learn how ChemBioDraw software can help you draw and analyze chemical and biological structures, reactions and pathways.

ChemBioDraw is the drawing tool of choice for chemists and biologists to create accurate drawings of chemical and biological structures, reactions and pathways for use in publications and for querying databases such as SciFinder. It offers a large variety of chemical and biological templates which can be easily modified without worry of copyright violation. ChemBioDraw analysis tools include physical property prediction algorithms, IUPAC nomenclature tools, 13C and 1H NMR prediction algorithms, stoichiometric analysis tools, and much more.

ChemBioDraw is available at ETH Zurich via IDES.

Workshop Program:

ChemBioDraw for Basic Users (1:00 pm – 1:45 pm)
The first part of the workshop will provide an overview of the ChemBioDraw software package including basic drawing tools, document settings, clean-up functions, shortcuts around molecules and reactions, hotkeys and templates. This will be an introductory session assuming no prior knowledge.

ChemBioDraw for Advanced Users (2:00 pm – 2:45 pm)
The second part of the workshop will focus on the advanced features of ChemBioDraw including drawing of biopolymers, name-to- structure/structure-to-name conversion, NMR spectra prediction, physical property prediction, reaction interpreter and stoichiometry grid.

ChemDraw for Excel (3:00 pm – 3:45 pm)
Excel spreadsheets are a powerful tool in the day-to-day work of scientists. This session will showcase various features of ChemDraw/Excel software, which allow the user to create chemically knowledgeable spreadsheets within the Microsoft Excel environment. Examples on how to build and manipulate chemical structures within Excel, calculate physicochemical properties and perform structure, similarity and substructure searches in a spreadsheet will be presented.

Networking Apero & Problem Solving (4:00 pm – 5:00 pm)
Note: If you have a specific problem, which you would like to be covered, please send an e-mail to

Guests are welcome. No registration required.
