ChemSpider -- Open Access Tool for Chemists

ChemSpider is a new structure-focused tool for search and retrieval of open access chemical information. You'll find here a single interface for access to structural and property data found in such open access repositories as PubChem (the National Library of Medicine compound database), ChemIDPlus, various NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) databases, Oxford University Chemical Safety Data and many others. Use the literature search module to link out to PubMed Central, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the International Union of Crystallography, and the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, amongst others, to retrieve both freely-available and licensed resources.

Thanks for noticing ChemSpider. The database presently has >21.4 million chemical compounds derived from over 150 data sources and is expanding literally daily since scientists can submit their own data online and manage their structure collections and data in a public forum. THe updates regarding the service are posted to the Chemspider Blog here: www.chemspider.com/blog.
