How to open RXN files

Did your computer fail to open a RXN file? We explain what RXN files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a RXN file?

RXN files are MDL Reaction format files, which you can read more about below.

The RXN file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a RXN opener may not be able to open all kinds of RXN files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
