Structure in JChem for Excel

The basic function for displaying molecules in JChem for Excel is JCSYSStructure. This function is responsible for rendering the molecule based on a link (hash) which points to a special sheet containing the full length of the molecule.

Structure functions display an image of the resulting structure in the target cell. The main difference between image and structure functions is, that structure functions can be reused as the input for other functions as well.

Functions providing structure notations in different formats are the following:

JCMolFormat

Converts structures to different formats. The function arguments are the following:

JCCXSMILES

Returns ChemAxon extended SMILES strings of a molecule. A detailed description of this file format can be found in ChemAxon Extended SMILES and SMARTS - CXSMILES and CXSMARTS.

JCSMILES

Returns SMILES strings of a molecule. A detailed description of this file format can be found in SMILES.
