New ChemNavTools Features
ChemNavTools provides researchers with a suite of software applications for Virtual Screening, Batch Searching, Chemical Data Management and Compound Acquisition. The tools included in the package are designed to interact with the iResearch Library (over 83 million chemical samples) directly from your desktop.

We appreciate user input, and have released 2 new ChemNavTools features, based on our users requests.

CncConnect: Keyword Searching
The CncConnect batch searching technology has expanded beyond simple ID searching and now covers keyword (text) searching. You may now search for samples by entering/pasting/uploading a list of keywords such as chemical names (e.g. "Tylenol"), industry standard identifiers, activity keywords (e.g. "kinase inhibitor"), and many more.

CncTranslate: Complete coverage of complex SD files
With just a right click of your mouse, CncTranslate can convert files between SD files, SMILES, Excel, SLN, SLN3D, MOL2, PNG and PDB formats. Users have presented SDF files that contain extended lists and 3D models embedded within the attributes of the data field. Now CncTranslate has the ability to parse these attribute fields and process the data as required.

This new feature allows users to upload complex SD files generated from other systems, directly into CncConnect to find and select supplier sources.
