ChemSpider links now available in ChEMBLdb
Here at ChEMBL, we are often contacted by users who are interested in purchasing some of the compounds that we store in our databases. However, our compounds are curated directly from the literature and we do not have access to physical samples. To enable our users to find supplier information for the compounds, we have now added direct links from ChEMBL to ChemSpider. ChemSpider is a resource containing millions of chemical structures, with associated property information. This property information also includes supplier information, where available. You can connect to ChemSpider via our Compound Report Card, under "Database Links" and by clicking on the Standard InchiKey hyperlink you will be taken directly to the same compound in ChemSpider. You can also connect directly to ChEMBLdb via ChemSpider using the hyperlink found under their "Biological Data" tab.
