There's a new add-in available for Accelrys Draw that allows users to perform structure lookups, name lookups, property lookups, LASSO searches and more against the RSC's ChemSpider Search web service.
This delivers a wealth of FREE chemistry data to the chemist's finger tips, from citations to spectra to pharmacological information and much more. Better still, it has the capability to transfer molecules back to the calling application from ChemSpider with a single click.
At the heart of this integration sits a new .Net Client API for the ChemSpider web service which can be used from *any* .Net application without the need for additional assemblies (other than standard .Net) and requires minimal code.
For instance below is another example of the ChemSpider Client API being used from Symyx Notebook:
And here is the sample code required to make the above possible:
