Is there any image-recognition software out there that can read in a high-resolution image of a ChemDraw-generated figure and back out the structure (such as the SMILES or INChI)? I have a bunch of review papers where there are tables upon tables of ChemDraw images of molecules and would really like to put them into some useable database.
There is a new tool for this: pic2mol.com. It's a cloud-based optical structure recognition service and an add-in for ChemDraw. There is a free trial. If you have ChemOffice, you can give it a try.
