RSC Swallows a ChemSpider

Chemspider.com, the chemicals search site of which my Spinneret blog is a part, has been acquired by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Chemspider kicked up a storm when it launched, assimilating millions of molecules, structures and associated data within a very short period and building up a vast and powerful database that encompassed the efforts of PubChem and several other systems with obvious benefits for chemical search within the chemistry community and beyond.

This RSC acquisition complements the learned society’s work on semantic mark-up technology and the release of the InChI chemical structure resolver, which was recently launched in partnership with ChemSpider.

ChemSpider is free to access and contains almost 21.5 million unique chemical entities sourced from over 200 different data sources and integrates with many other services.
