Updated Software

ChemProp - new download link

Important: The ChemProp download has been moved to a new server. The old location provides all necessary information. 

The current version is 6.2 (released on December 5 2014).

Be aware, older versions until 6.0 are expired already, and 6.1 will expire at the end of this year!

The change log is located here:

The license agreements as well as a poster about ChemProp (state of May 2012) are available for download:
