I just have ran into this Open Chemistry Project and It has really
excited me!! Well done!!
I hope not to be asking redundant stuff but in wich point are you
exactly in creating an interface of searching by substructure,
reaction, reactant? Cause this could be really really a revolution. If
all academics we used the same open notebook format, we could look for
reactions, reactants, specific conditions, yields... That would be
great, cause many often a reaction does not work with a reactant in
concrete and I don't publish it anywhere!
There is a public database of reactions that maybie could be nice to
invite to join _UsefulChem community? I dunno. I just give you the
And with all the blogs, pubChem, matador and many more databases
emerging it would be really great to integrate all this information
with a public open notebook in the same web, wouldn't it?
I don't know, I'm going to talk to my professor (I'm doing my PhD in
Barcelona), it would be great o join you! Nice work guys!
