CDD Vault Update (December 2019): ELN New Features – Improved Handling of Salts, Checkbox and Timestamp, Text Formatting
December 9, 2019
CDD wishes everyone a festive and joyous holiday season!
Salt Form Identification
When drawing reactions in an ELN entry, users must now explicitly draw the + symbol to indicate separate reaction components. If two structures are drawn as a mixture without the use of a + symbol, they will be considered as 1 reaction component and CDD Vault ELN will identify any salts found in the structure. If no salts are found, the mixture will be considered a single reaction component.
As an example, if the following structure is drawn as a reactant, CDD Vault ELN will identify the hydrochloride salt.
The resulting stoichiometry table will list this as only 1 reactant, and it will be referenced as methanamine hydrochloride and report the appropriate formula weight.

Users may now access the Insert tools found in the ELN header menu bar by right-clicking in the ELN entry while holding any one of the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or Windows/Command keys.
When right-clicking within a Table, additional Table tools are included in the menu.
