Addition of a PDF Document Viewer to its open access chemicalize.org service. Researchers can now highlight and display chemicals mentioned in text PDFs such as patents and scientific papers, explore their properties and download as SD files for further study. Visit demo. Expanding public chemistry resource now exceeds 185,000 unique compounds. BUDAPEST, Hungary--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ChemAxon, a leader in providing chemical software development platforms and desktop applications for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, announces the addition of a PDF Document Viewer to its open access chemicalize.org service. Researchers can now highlight and display chemicals mentioned in text PDFs such as patents and scientific papers, explore their properties and download as SD files for further study. Used by scientists worldwide, chemicalize.org identifies chemical names (SMILES, InChI, traditional and IUPAC names) on websites, in text and now PDF files, converting them to 2D structures. Researchers can also calculate and explore a range of structure-based properties, search by structure in the ever expanding chemicalize.org knowledge-base, and search the internet to find all websites citing a particular chemical structure. All structures found on webpages visited by chemicalize.org users are stored and can be queried using substructure, similarity and exact structure searches. Alternatively, users can add chemistry to a Google search, including querying for multiple structures and combining chemical names with non-chemical text. chemicalize.org is an open access chemical structure miner and web search engine powered by ChemAxon technology, including Marvin for structure visualization and query building, structure-based prediction tools, and JChem Web Services for searching. The service is freely available to all, visit demo. To discover more about how ChemAxon's leading edge cross platform solutions power modern cheminformatics and chemical communication, please visit http://revamp.chemaxon.com Details: The Document Viewer – strongly resembling the existing webpage viewer – includes the following features:
  • view PDF document in the browser
  • browse document from chemical TOC
  • find and highlight location of structures
  • extract chemical structures from the document
Due to the nature of PDF files, access may be limited as follows:
  • uploaded PDF – only you have access, others may only see the abstract
  • link to PDF on the web – public, others will see the entire document
To get started, go to http://www.chemicalize.org/ and click upload. This development was added based on the feedback of chemicalize.org users. Don’t forget to let us know about your thoughts on the chemicalize.org's blog and related questionnaire.
