ChemSpider SyntheticPages

I recently mentioned the Reaction Attempts project, which aims to collect organic chemistry experiments - especially those that are "failed", in progress or somehow incomplete.

For reactions where the desired product has been obtained and fully characterized, ChemSpider SyntheticPages also offers a very convenient publication vehicle. As I mentioned previously there is a need for enabling the publication of single experiments, especially when these are unlikely to become part of a traditional article.

We are in the process of submitting suitable reactions from the UsefulChem project to CS|SP. This will require some re-formatting of procedures and characterization data as they currently appear in the lab notebook.

Here is an example of one of our Ugi reactions: SyntheticPage 406 (UCEXP176C)

A nice feature of these pages is the automatic rendering of 2D structures upon hovering on top of chemical names.

Here are a few more reasons to use ChemSpider SyntheticPages:
* ChemSpider SyntheticPages takes you directly to a procedure. When you get a hit - you get a procedure.
* ChemSpider SyntheticPages provides information that may not generally be found elsewhere, such as frequently encountered problems, trouble-shooting tips, the number of times the reaction has been carried out, scale-variation etc.
* ChemSpider SyntheticPages is the only interactive chemistry database. Information is constantly updated and validated by comments from the user community (Peer Review in the Public Domain™).
* ChemSpider SyntheticPages can provide you with the most up-to-date method, we aim for 95% of submissions to be processed within 48 hours of submission.
* ChemSpider SyntheticPages is free of charge.
