Add Properties to a Document

    JChem for Office properties require a structure as an input. The properties can be viewed by selecting a structure and clicking the Properties button on the ribbon, this opens the Chemical Properties form.

    The same Chemical Properties form is available in Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook applications.


    The Chemical Properties form consists of the following parts:

    • Properties: The selected structure is displayed on the left. The structure is read-only and cannot be edited on the form.

      A property list is available in the grid (the list can be specified at Options > Calculations, clicking the More Properties button, opens this options window).

      Only some default properties ( IUPACName , logP , Mass , DonorAtomCount , PSA , LipinskiRuleof54of4 ) are available by default. Property name and value calculated for the current structure are displayed in the first two columns. Use the third column to add the current property to the document, presentation, or email message. Selected properties are available at the top of the list and JChem for Office remembers your last selection.

    • Fragments: Fragments of the current compound with their Formula and MolWeight values are displayed.

    • Largest Fragment: The largest fragment of the current compound is shown.

    By clicking the Add to Document button, the selected properties—property names and values—and fragment information are added to the current document, presentation, or email message.


    Clicking the Cancel button closes the Chemical Properties form without any changes in the current document, presentation, or email message.
