CCL: Looking for a structure to name conversion software

I am presently involved in writing a book chapter regarding Name to Structure conversion. Dennis, would you please contact me offline to discuss the objective criteria you used to compare the three products. Thanks

The options for converting names to structures are three companies/products:


  1. ACD has a batch program.
  2. Cambridgesoft has a batch program.
  3. OpenEyes has a product LexiChem. 


I evaluated all three in 2006 and preferred Lexichem. 


I am unaware of any free software.

ChemOffice may do that better, but it is commerical software.
