3. Find the needed codes here (must be logged into to your Dartmouth Google account)

Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry II

Authoritative review chapters surveying binding of ligands, coordination chemistry of the elements in periodic order, and applications, including trends in biology, medicine, materials science, and other areas. Published in 2004, CCCII surveys developments in the field since 1982.


A molecular editor used for drawing structures and for querying chemical databases.


With the release of v17, ChemDraw has moved to an online fulfillment and entitlement system. All site licenses for v17 and beyond will be administered through Flexnet Operations. You will be asked to register as a member in this new system.  This is in addition to your existing PerkinElmer’s user account on their website. The new system provides access to download the software and the needed activation codes.
