With market research and technical specs out of the way it is time for episode one (beta) of our novel chemical reaction database (CRD). We ambitiously or naively start with reaction 00000001, selected at random from the recent literature. As a reminder the images are displayed as .svg. Outdated browsers will not be able to handle this image type. The Pubchem sketcher is doing a lot of the hard work, generating the image, the InchI and SMILES in a single sesson. The entire database (2 main records!) is available as a download below. This makes the database the first open-source reaction database in the world!, ever! We feel proud.
