I would like to render chemical formulas, not the summary formulas, but the actual drawings of formulas, such as benzene rings, stereospecific formulas of natural substances...

Does anybody have experience with a good and cheap application to create those images?

Your help is very much appreciated!

Thank You, Juan! Mar 20, 2002

Hello Juan,

Your recommendation is very helpful.

The other (less pricey) solution would be ChemSketch ($99 vs. 1300). There is a Freeware version for everybody who just wants to do a few formulas. The freeware version won\'t provide 3D-images. Unfortunately, I have no experience with those cheap versions.

Thanks again for your quick response,
