The best freeware application for drawing chemical structures is without
doubt Isis/Draw ... it is an intelligent structure drawing package
available from MDL for a Windows environment.

But what's the problem with your current procedure using ChemDraw ?
OK you cannot edit a PNG graphic file, you have to go back to the
ChemDraw original ?  But trust me, a LaTeX picture approach is dreadful
by comparison ...

hi, list:
What's the best method of drawing chemical structures for latex?
MetaPost? I didn't search out that it's up to do that.
PPCHTeX? Seems I have to learn context, but I think firstthing I must to
learn is 
latex ...
xymtex? Not a good choice.
Now I have to do it thru ``chemdraw -> export xxx.png ->
includegraphic{xxx.png}'' ...

Any advice or indicator will be appreciate.
Thank you.
