Conversions

ConvertFromInChiToStructureAction

Converts IUPAC InChi strings to structures.

ConvertFromIUPACNameToStructureAction

Converts IUPAC names or CAS Registry Numbers® to structures.
Requires the Name to Structure license.

ConvertFromMOLToStructureAction

Converts MOL strings to structures.
The ConvertFromMOLToStructureAction is not available in the JChem for Excel ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar by default but it is possible to make it available by customizing the ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar.

ConvertFromShapeAction

Converts simple Excel images and Marvin OLE shapes converted by the Convert to Image Shape and Convert to Marvin OLE Shape back to structures.
Excel images inserted to the worksheet by other means cannot be converted to structures. This functionality is simply the reverse of Convert to Image Shapes and Convert to Marvin OLE Shape.
For more information, see Convert Images to Structures.

ConvertFromSMILESToStructureAction

Converts SMILES strings to structures. The following SMILES string formats are recognized:

  • SMILES

  • SMARTS

  • ChemAxon Extended SMILES

  • ChemAxon Extended SMARTS

Tag Parameters:

The parameters specified in the tag override the parameters specified in Options. Tag parameters have to be specified in the following format:

Single parameter:
<parameter name1>:<parameter value1>

Multiple parameters:
<parameter name1>:<parameter value1>;<parameter name2>:<parameter value2>

Parameter: ResizeToDefault

Values:

  • True: Resizes the cell to the default size specified in Options.
    tag="ResizeToDefault:True"

  • False: Keeps the cell size.
    tag="ResizeToDefault:False"

Parameter: Placement

Values:

  • Replace: Replaces the SMILES string with the structure in the cell.
    tag="Placement:Replace"

  • InsertRight: Inserts a new column to the right, and places the structures there, while keeping the original SMILES.
    tag="Placement:InsertRight"

ConvertFromTextToStructureAction

Converts text type formats (SMILES, InChi, Name, CAS Registry Number®) to structure.
By applying this action, the conversion might be slower than by applying the specific conversion actions, for example, ConvertFromSMILESToStructureAction.
This action is available on the ribbon by default.

ConvertToChemDrawOLEAction

Converts JChem for Excel specific structures to ChemDraw OLE objects.
The ConvertToChemDrawOLEAction is not available in the JChem for Excel ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar by default but it is possible to make it available by customizing the ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar.

ConvertToCXSMARTSAction

Converts structures to ChemAxon extended SMARTS strings.

ConvertToCXSMILESAction

Converts structures to ChemAxon extended SMILES strings.

ConvertToInChiAction

Converts structures to IUPAC InChi strings.

ConvertToIUPACNameAction

Converts structures to IUPAC names.

ConvertToOLEAction

Converts JChem for Excel specific structures to Marvin OLE shapes.

ConvertToSMARTSAction

Converts structures to SMARTS strings.

ConvertToSMILESAction

Converts structures to SMILES strings.

ConvertToStructureCommentAction

Converts JChem for Excel specific structures to Structure Comment shapes.
The ConvertToStructureCommentAction is not available in the JChem for Excel ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar by default but it is possible to make it available by customizing the ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar.

ConvertToStructureImageAction

Converts JChem for Excel specific structures to simple Excel images. For more information, see Convert Structures to Images.

ConvertToJCSYSStructureAction

Converts structure-related functions to JCSYSStructure function. For example, JC2DCleanStructure, JC3DCleanStructure, JCBemisMurckoStructure, JCStandardizeStructure and related functions, JCRGroupDecompositionQueryStructure and related functions, reactions related functions.
This way the results of these functions become editable with appropriate editors.

The ConvertToJCSYSStructureAction is not available in the JChem for Excel ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar by default but it is possible to make it available by customizing the ribbon/context menu/menu/toolbar.

ConvertHelmToStructureAction

Converts Hierarchical Editing Language for Macromolecules-based (HELM) representations to structures. This action requires access to the Biomolecule Toolkit.
