hi,
is it possible to convert a CAS-Nr (eg 50-00-0 for Formaldehyde) into a structure?
In ChemDraw Professional 17, Structure/Convert Name to Structure draws the structure when Formaldehyde is entered, but can`t convert the CAS into the structure.

thanks in advance,
stefan

Yes this is possible in ChemDraw Professional 17.1, please try the following steps

1. GoTo Add-ins menu and select "ChemACX.com Structure from CAS Number"
2.Enter the CAS number (eg 50-00-0) in the CAS Number text box present in the ChemDraw Add-in-ChemACX.com from CAS Number dialog box
3.Click the Search Button

hi,
thank you for your answer.
Currently i have installed version 17.0.0.206 and can´t find an Add-Ins menu in the ChemDraw window.
Do i have to install 17.1 or can`t i find how to activate Add-Ins in 17.0 ?

thanks again for support,
stefan

Add-Ins menu available form the current version update (i.e v17.1; eg ChemDraw Professional 17.1.0.105 (19) for Windows)

Download v17.1 installers from Flexnet Download Center using your account. Then uninstall v17.0 components and install v17.1
