Import from File

    It is possible to import structures and associated data from various file formats.

    Watch this video to find out more about how to import multiple chemical structures from a file into an Excel spreadsheet.

    The following file formats are supported:

    • ChemAxon MRV

    • MDL SD File (this group of files may include filetypes having different extensions, for example, .rgf, which means SDF format containing R-group definitions or .csrgf, which is the compressed format of .rgf.)

    • MDL RD File

    • List of SMILES strings

    • List of ChemAxon extended smiles strings

    • List of IUPAC names

    • Different types of documents with Document to Structure license (see more in Import with Document to Structure in JChem for Excel topic)

    • A part of structure file formats is supported as well (see also in Open Structure Files topic)

    {info} Use this function to import structures from file formats that support multiple structures. To import individual structures use the Insert Single Structures function.
