CLiDE Professional

Chemical structure extraction for enterprise users

CLiDE Professional is perfect for users who wish to select, extract and review large numbers of structures via a user friendly interface


  • Extraction of large numbers of structures by a simple mouse click
  • Saves many hours of redrawing structures
  • The review of results is facilitated with a split document view between source and extracted structures, auto-detection of interpretation errors, and smooth transfer of structures into a chosen well-known chemical editor

What’s in the box?

  • Has a contemporary easy-to-use classic document viewer user interface
  • Opens PDF and Word documents
  • Opens images of several types, including BMP, GIF, JPEG, PBM, PGM, PNG, PNM, PPM, TIFF, XBM and XPM
  • Extracts structures from structure diagrams
  • Attempts to interpret generic structures
  • Detects and highlights most interpretation errors
  • Chemical extraction can be done interactively via the user interface
  • Provides split view for easy comparison of source and extracted structures
  • Indicates structures that have any abnormalities (including recognition errors and valence violations)
  • Supports the display of super atoms in expanded and contracted form
  • Provides a set of options
    • to annotate structure parts e.g. non-interpreted atoms or valence-violated atoms
    • to control the recognition process
    • to select a particular chemical editor
    • to control the information saved into exported files
  • Supports structure editing directly via
    • ChemDraw
    • Accelrys Draw (formerly Symyx Draw and ISIS Draw)

Marvin Sketch

This allows the correction of any recognition errors present in the extracted structures

  • Saves structures in the following formats:
    • MDL Molfile
    • MDL SDfile
    • MDL RGfile
    • CDX (ChemDraw)
    • CML (Chemical Markup Language)
    • MRV (ChemAxon Marvin Document)
    • XML (Extensible Markup Language)
  • Supports multi-session document analysis. This can be done by saving the extraction results into XML file format which can be reloaded at a later time in order to continue reviewing and exporting structures
  • Supports grouping structures so that multiple structures can be edited
    • Supports deleting structures so that unwanted structures can be excluded

How does it work?

User selects a page or ranges of pages to process within CLiDE Professional

CLiDE Professional extracts structures 

User can change the display of super atoms (highlighted in green) to reveal their sub connection table

User can select a structure to transfer it a chemical editor

Structure transferred into PerkinElmer’s ChemDraw for editing

Once all structures have been reviewed, user saves structures into chemical files such as ChemDraw’s CDX and MDL Sdfile formats

User observes structures and their property values exported by CLiDE Professional in other applications such as ChemAxon’s MarvinView
