CHEMCAD is a widely used process simulator. Cranium and Synapse can generate CHEMCAD neutral files. These neutral files contain physical property data and estimates. Once these files are generated, commands within CHEMCAD can be used to read the contained physical property values into CHEMCAD.
The following window displays an example CHEMCAD neutral file. The application also generates a ".xlog" log file that details the sources and procedures used to generate the exported physical property values.

|List of chemicals selected to be exported.
The following neutral file was generated by exporting several chemicals including acetic acid, cyclohexanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, n-hexane, toluene and vinyl chloride.

|A the log file generated by Cranium and Synapse documenting the data values and estimation methods used to generate the values exported to the neutral file.
Please see our video demonstrating how to export a CHEMCAD neutral file. The video uses Cranium to generate estimates for several physical properties. These estimates, and other physical property data are then written to a CHEMCAD neutral file.
