ICEDIT is the user-friendly chemical structure and reaction editor from InfoChem. Frequent discussions with customers during the development phase helped to optimize the graphical user interface and the functionality.
Get ICEDIT to draw chemical structures and reactions in a very intuitive way, using the symbols familiar from chemical sketches on paper.

Features such as:

make ICEDIT the ideal tool to manage and search structure and reaction databases.

In order to meet various customer demands ICEDIT is available in several editions.

Desktop Application

Using the ICEDIT drawing application for Windows you can store and import MOL and RXN files (MDL®), as well as ISIS/Sketches, ChemDraw cdx files and SMILES. In addition an extensive collection of templates together with a comprehensive list of superatoms and abbreviations help the user to draw complex structures and reactions quickly and without effort.
The layout functionalities supported by ICEDIT enable users to easily create structures and reactions in publication-quality and to integrate them seamlessly via OLE objects in Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel) and presentations (PowerPoint).

Optional add-ins to support the InfoChem components ICMap (automated reaction mapping) and ICCheck (structure standardization) are available on demand.

The new version 3.0 of ICEDIT released in spring 2014 offers scaling and improved display and layout options. Click here for the detailed version history.

Web Versions

InfoChem has developed two web-compatible ICEDIT versions: a JavaScript (HTML5 based) version and a Java applet. Our goal is to guarantee seamless integration and easy usage of the editing tool on any platform.

Due to the discontinued support of Java applets in general in the newest generation of most common browsers, InfoChem has recently developed also an HTML5 based, JavaScript version of the editor. Of course, this JavaScript version of ICEDIT 3.0 provides all features and advantages of the Java applet.
Both ICEDIT web-versions are available on the fly, therefore no installation on the user's computer is required.

The layout and the functionality of the web-versions can be individually customized. For the implementation of the alias support a web service is required.

Test here how easy it is to draw chemical structures with the JavaScript editor:

Your web browser must have JavaScript enabled in order for this application to display correctly.
