ChemWidget has been designed from the ground up to be touch-ready.
Most important UI elements are generously sized, making it easy to manipulate the structures on a touch screen.Demo
Four times the pixels. Beautiful icons. Crystal-clear structures.
ChemWidget is aware of Retina-class displays, and turns on pixel-doubling automatically on suitable devices.Demo

No Java, No Flash, No Problem
For your users, there are no confusing security warnings to click through, and no prompts to install a plugin or download Java. They can start viewing or drawing chemical structures as soon as the main page of your site or application loads. And everything works seamlessly on tablets and smartphones, too. ChemWidget was designed with mobile users in mind: most important UI elements are generously sized, making it easy to draw structures on a touch screen.
Any chemist can be productive with ChemWidget right away. That is because the behavior of all the drawing and editing tools is industry-standard. There is absolutely no learning curve, even on touchscreen devices.
Do your structures include free radicals? Spiro rings? Double bonds with undefined E/Z geometry? A 19-carbon linear chain? Numbered R-groups? ChemWidget makes it easy to draw these features. It will even suggest best bond angles (i.e. 180° for C-C≣C) and warn of exceeding standard valence.
Smile for SMILES
Browser and Device Support
All major web browsers, including Internet Explorer, are fully supported. ChemWidget is touch-aware on iOS and Android. Most important UI elements are generously sized, making it easy to manipulate the structures on a touch screen.
Beautiful Structure Rendering
ChemWidget features publication-quality structure rendering. The “wedge” bonds connect seamlessly, and rendering of double bonds is adjusted automatically for best look and readability. ChemWidget is aware of Retina-class displays, and turns on pixel-doubling automatically on suitable devices.
Fast and Lean
ChemWidget was built for speed. In modern browsers, an HTML5 Canvas element is used for rendering, which results in a lightweight DOM structure and blazing-fast performance even with multiple structures on a page. The entire application fits in a small, ~400k download, which is strongly cached by the client browser.
