Substances

Find substances by search term or chemical structure.

Search term may be the following:

  • Substance name
    ibuprofen
  • CAS Registry Number
    51146-57-7
  • Document identifier
    10.1093/nar/gki470  (DOI)
    15980585  (PMID)
    US4571400  (patent)

Chemical structure may be drawn or imported using the tool.

  • Chemical structure

Advanced search may be used for the following:

  • Molecular formula
    C7H6O
  • Substance property
    boiling point
  • Experimental spectra
    proton NMR

If both search term and chemical structure queries are present, substances will only match the chemical structure query (search term query is ignored).
