ChemAxon's input and output system supports approximately 25 formats.

The detailed documentation about the supported file formats can be found in the File formats document.

Listing all available formats programmatically

Programmatic listing of the available file formats is available via the MFileFormat andMFileFormatUtil API.

The code below lists the available molecule export formats:

MFileFormat[] formats = MFileFormatUtil.findFormats(
      null,
      MFileFormat.F_EXPORT,
      MFileFormat.F_EXPORT | MFileFormat.F_ARCHIVE | MFileFormat.F_GRAPHICS);

 

In this example archive formats (like GZip or BASE64) are included by the MFileFormat.F_ARCHIVE flag, graphics formats are included by the MFileFormat.F_GRAPHICS flag given by the 3rd parameter.
