OCEANSIDE, CA, USA, October 7, 2020   ̶   US Patent No. 10,424,399 has been granted to Integrated Chemistry Design, Inc. (ICD) headquartered in Oceanside, CA.

The recently issued patent broadens coverage of the technology developed in Chirys Draw™ to include all graphic input devices, such as mice, touchpads, and graphic tablets in addition to mobile touch screens. The circle motion technology replaces cumbersome and outdated template tables with a natural circular motion to rapidly draw chemical rings with any device.

According to ICD co-founder and president, Dr. M. Catherine Johnson, “ICD’s comprehensive set of patented circular motions empowers chemists to draw complex chemical structures and reactions quickly and easily. By mapping how chemists draw with pen and paper to natural motions, the chemist can focus on capturing their ideas on any device instead of operating the software. The newly issued patent expands the ICD patent portfolio to include chemical ring structures on all devices that chemists use in daily work to draw chemical structures.”

Chirys™, the ICD brand name for its chemistry software, is derived from the Greek word kheir meaning “hand,” referring to the direct, hands on creation of chemical structures and to the chiral, left or right “handed” nature of many important chemical compounds.
