Getting Viagra up in 20 seconds

Pierre Morieux, a postdoc in medicinal chemistry in France sent me a Youtube clip he made. In it he uses some neat tricks, keyboard shortcuts, hotkeys and the like to construct a molecule of Viagra in ChemDraw in less than 20 seconds. He reckons it could save anyone who has to draw chemical structures and reaction schemes many hours if they learn from his tutorial. At first, it looks like he’s cheating somehow, he draws it so quickly. But, he isn’t he’s just set up his installation of the almost ubiquitous software to make drawing organic compounds a whole lot easier than using mouse clicks on the toolbar.

So, here it is a how-to draw Viagra and almost any other small molecular structure in ChemDraw very quickly.
